In much of rural Haiti, where LHM’s work is focused, many churches and schools meet outside, or under impermanent and unsafe structures. The functioning of the work is hampered by any number of challenges from nature: wind- swept dust, glaring sunlight or torrential rains, just to name a few. One of the first requests LHM usually receives when we come into a community is help with a better structure for the church and school. LHM is proud to collaborate with local church volunteers to begin this process. We are also privileged to host volunteer teams who work hand in hand with locals to realize the goal of a safe and solid meeting place for both the church and for educating children in the community.
