The Haiti Orphan Project trips offer the opportunity to personally experience the ministry of third world orphan prevention and medical/dental clinics and to encourage our partners in Haiti.
Our trips are six days, usually Wednesday through Monday. We’ll leave early on a Wednesday morning, meet in Miami and fly into Port-au-Prince as a group. We’ll make it to our destination, the Paradise Village Inn in Gonaives, in time for dinner.
Paradise Village Inn in Gonaives is where we will spend most of our nights in Haiti. It is owned by a Haitian-American couple who operate the inn as a means of income to support their school, The Belle Angel School in Gonaives.
Over the weekend, you’ll spend time with children at two to three different church homes for kids in Gonaives, Haiti. Activities are similar to what you would do with your own kids – singing, games, crafts, hugging and holding. During your visit, you will also have an opportunity to experience our ministry model of coming along side at risk families, worship with the local church in Haiti, and learn about job-creating businesses, all against the backdrop of the sights and sounds of Haiti.
In addition, some of our trips will include mobile medical clinics as part of our HOPE Medical Project. You need not be a medical professional to participate in the medical clinics (there are always needs for “helpers” during the clinics). But if you are a medical professional we welcome your participation on these trips. In any case, the singing, games, crafts, etc. with the kids will always be a part of every trip.
While our goal is to bless the children and families we serve, we are more often the recipient of the blessing. God is transforming lives (our lives and the children) through our ministry of orphan prevention.
