Haiti Ministry

In the poorest country in the Western hemisphere, we strive to serve as the hands and feet of Christ. We partner with Family Health Ministries, a Durham-based organization that supports Haitian communities in their efforts to build and sustain healthy families. 

Many Haiti team members describe their experience on this mission trip as transformational. Witnessing the warmth, faith and persistence of the Haitian people in the face of tremendous obstacles leaves a deep impression.

 Be ready to be changed.

Westminster has traditionally sent a medical team to Haiti for a week every October. Following the hurricane experience of October 2016, the trip has been moved to March, and the next trip will be in March 2018. Most trips include about 12 people, with a minimum of four medical providers, ideally nurses, family nurse practitioners and doctors. EMTs, specialists and non-medical people can also serve.

The trip includes four days of work in a clinic in Port-au-Prince as well as the chance to visit the rural Fondwa community, where Family Health Ministries supports a school and an orphanage. Look for more information later in 2017.
