Imagine a world where you had to walk 45 minutes to get to the closest source of water only to find out it’s empty. You walk another 15 minutes to get to water that is stagnant and you see people bathing, washing clothes and have their mule refueling in the same place. Then a little child walks up to you, take the container off their head and with a smile, scoops that same water up and then turns to walk back to their home. Imagine a world where the only time you even had water was when God provided rain. Imagine a world where there were no jobs that paid money and food was not just a necessity, but more like a luxury.
Imagine eating twice a week and not twice a day. Imagine a world where 75% of the children are malnourished and their bellies are triple their actual size due to the worms that have taken up residence and are robbing the child of any hint of nutrients. Their feet are bare and their clothes are tattered and dirty. They long for something better but they’ve never known anything different. For the people of the mountains, they don’t have to imagine this world. It is their world.
The mountain villages are the forgotten people of Haiti. These are the people we are seeking to help. The people who live in the mountains haven’t always been as easily accessible as they have been in the past few months. Major improvements are being made on roads and as a result, we have been able to reach more and more people. As part of our mountain outreach, we partner with the village leaders and do feeding programs and do basic medical clinics. We pray with our Haitian brothers and sisters and point them all to Jesus and the hope that is found in Him alone.
The cost is too high for us to not be involved. They have been the invisible people of Haiti for too long and it’s time for us to let them know they are seen. Consider partnering with us as we seek to meet the basic and spiritual needs of these small communities. For $10 a month you can help feed these children of the mountains and make a difference and even save a life. We cannot afford to wait for somebody else to do it when we can do something about it now.
