According to Hope for Haiti, over 50% of Haiti’s population is school age and the literacy rate is less than 50%. Approximately 70% of the people live in poverty, with an average annual income of $400 per year. 15% of all children in Haiti are orphaned or abandoned. Most estimates put the number of orphans in Haiti prior to the January 2010 earthquake at about 380,000. Experts now estimate that the number of orphans has doubled to about 750,000 since the earthquake. Joy House has literally impacted thousands of lives and serves two orphanages and four different area churches.
On this trip, we will be doing evangelism with individuals of all ages and the trip could potentially include opportunities for construction work, sports clinics, health clinics, and women’s ministry. Come join us as we bring the Good News to the people of Haiti. For more information, please contact Karlad@crosschurch.com or Seths@crosschurch.com.
