Haiti Spring Break

About Haiti Trip

 

This Spring Break, Baylor Cru will again partner with Filter of Hope to send students to Haiti. Filter of Hope is an organization that desires to provide the two most important needs of poor people in the Caribbean. Water and the gospel. Filter of Hope is present in 9 Central American countries where the most of the poor have no access to clean drinking water. We will spend four days visiting remote parts of the country and using filters as a way to share the gospel with local families while meeting there need for clean drinking water. After those four busy days, We will have a day of rest and fun spending time on the beach before heading home to jump back into school. The cost of the will cover the cost of travel, food, housing, and the filters that we will be giving out. Come join us for a Spring Break you won’t forget!

About Haiti

Haiti is a country located on the island of Hispaniola in the Greater Antilles archipelago of the Caribbean Sea. It occupies the western three-eighths of the island, which it shares with the Dominican Republic. Haiti is 10,714 square miles in size and has an estimated 10.8 million people, making it second-most populous country in the Caribbean.

Haiti needs godly leaders who will prioritize the good of the nation and address its massive problems. Two centuries of misrule, tyranny and recent flawed democratic attempts have brought hopelessness and despair. The economic plight of most Haitians deepens each year, exacerbated by the events of 2010. Many seek to escape, some physically by fleeing the country in unsafe and leaky boats, others emotionally through taking drugs.

This context offers ample opportunities to meet Haitians physical and spiritual needs.
