Wesleyan Church Rebuild
Extraordinary events require an extraordinary response. The earthquake which shattered the nation of Haiti on January 12, 2010 is considered by many to be the most devastating natural disaster in modern history when considered by population and size of the economy.
The Wesleyan Church of Haiti has a significant presence in the most affected areas with a total of 34 church or school buildings and parsonages, including the Wesleyan hospital, severely damaged or destroyed by the earthquake. Since January 2010 the rebuild process has continued with the help of work teams and a Haitian construction crew. The response of the church to the needs in Haiti has been significant and gratifying in terms of finances, supplies and human resources. The people of Haiti, especially the believers, will never forget that in the midst of dysfunctional government and inefficient international relief efforts, the Wesleyan Church around the world responded in their time of great need.

There are still 9 churches remaining to be built or rebuilt from the earthquake. Many of these areas are too remote to host teams and funds ranging from $25,000-40,000 are needed to complete them with our Haitian construction crew.
