Since 1995, the Haiti Partnership of the Susquehanna and Upper New York Annual Conferences has been sending volunteer mission teams to Haiti to build schools and churches, to provide humanitarian aid, and to do God's work along-side the Haitian people. Our aim is to participate in sustainable development projects that are developed and run by Haitian church and community leaders. So much has been accomplished and so many lives have been changed. But there's still so much left to do.
Men, women, and youth age 17 and older are invited to join the Haiti Partnership as a mission team member. This year, we are sending five teams and over 50 Volunteers in Mission, many of whom are traveling to Haiti for the first time. Each volunteer raises $1,500 for their expenses, and the Helping Haiti Offering received by local churches, along with other contributions, pays for project costs and other ministries. The volunteer’s payment covers all travel expenses – airfare, housing, van to NYC airport, tips, food, in-country travel, interpreter’s pay, travel insurance, etc.
