Ministry News

Village of Hope Haiti

The VoH School and Health Center are up and running again after a 2 week closure.  Our Field Directors, Rob and Trish Low, are back and schedules at both the school and health center are pretty much normal at this time.  All classes are completely full and the kids especially are glad to be back at their studies.  All services at the health center are available to patients and many people from the surrounding area have been coming for help.  Unfortunately, unrest can break out again at anytime.  Mission Team visits are cancelled for March.  The  VoH staff will continue to monitor the situation and determine when team activities will resume.   Please continue to pray for peace in Haiti!   Check the Village of Hope Facebook page often for current news. To learn more about our work at the Village of Hope Haiti, please click here.
