Haiti Mission Incorporated (HMI) is a Louisiana-based, international, development organization that helps build sustainable projects to bring dignity, hope, love, joy, and faith to the people of Haiti.
Bringing water to within 500 feet of every person in the region is still a major and primary focus of Haiti Mission, Inc. No development in any area is possible without sufficient, clean water. We now have 64 wells drilled in Haiti and are hoping to drill several more in 2021. Your generous donation can help to transform the lives of many.
As of August 2021, we have built 235 houses in the area. This is a substantial and an incredible number of families that now have lovely, durable and dignified homes and no longer have to live in mud and squalor. The four room houses with porches now afford safe shelter for them and for friends and family.
After HMI had been working in Haiti for several years, trying to improve the water situation, developing schools for the children and building a house here and there for some of the families that were in desperate circumstances, Fr. Joe asked us to consider helping the extremely poor families in some way. As he put it, “All the families here are poor, but some are in truly pitiful shape.” The team came together and put a process together that initially feed 28 families. Now, while the process has changed, we distribute food to almost 800 families. Check out “Dirty Cards / Food Distribution” under the tab “What We Do”.
St. Bridget Haiti Mission School
From the humble beginning of one school with about 200 children, the St. Bridget Haiti Mission School System now continues to afford a basic education to the children of the area in buildings constructed by Haiti Mission in partnership with friends, foundations and Rotary groups. Because of this basic elementary education, secondary and some vocational training which is now being made available through your generosity, these children and adults have hope and promise of a much brighter tomorrow.
In addition to supporting the schools, a feeding program has been instituted. Many children come to school but the degree of their malnutrition is so severe that they are unable to learn or stay in school for any length of time. This feeding program insures that every child attending the elementary schools in the Numero Deux and Ravine Saab will have at least one nutritious meal a day.
Earth Quake Relief
HMI EARTHQUAKE RELIEF EFFORTS
HMI has been in Haiti for 21 years and it has always been focused on doing the most efficient work to help as many people as possible, while being accountable to you for your generous donations.
What is the HMI plan and how can you help?
Obviously, continue to pray for all those affected in Jeremie and throughout the area extending to Les Cayes. Specifically, also please pray that the relief efforts will quickly repair and secure the roads between Les Cayes and Jeremie, because that is how most of the food and construction supplies arrive by truck from PAP. The road is essential to help all the people in the Jeremie area.
If you would like to send financial contributions to HMI we would ask that you send a note to direct your contribution to your choice of four areas: (We are focusing on the areas we serve as part of our Corporal Works of Mercy on our mission trips)
1. Missionaries of Charity: The sisters do an amazing job caring for the sick men, woman and children and also do weekly food distributions in Jeremie. Any money we can get into their hands will be used wisely.
2. Prison Ministry: An anonymous donor has offered to match up to $5000 in donations to this cause and if we are able to raise the money we will utilize it to feed the prisoners once a month for the next 3-6 months, which hopefully will be long enough for conditions to improve.
3. Home Construction: Homes will even be more desirable and in need for the many people in our area who will be trying to help shelter family and friends who have lost their homes in Jeremie. We anticipate that over the next several months that material costs will likely increase and we want to be prepared to purchase as needed to keep our construction team employed and to move families into a safe home.
4. Your Option to distribute between the three choices above or if you have no preference we will distribute based on where we think it can best be utilized.
Thank you in advance for your support and prayers for Haiti. HMI has done amazing work because God has blessed us with incredibly generous supporters. Your support has helped thousands of people we serve move from misery to poverty and given them hope in times of despair.
HMI has done so much, but we can only see clearly how much more needs to be done. As we bring our twentieth year to a close, we are more confident than ever that God’s grace and blessings will continue to flow through us into the lives of more people who have been oftentimes forgotten by the world. With your help we will answer the call of the poor and the needy. With Christ at our side and the power of God in our hearts, we will persist in this labor of love. We will continue to be doers of the Word and not just hearers.
Solar Lantern Project
The positive impact of the lights has been tremendous. We have been able to distribute the lanterns during our "new home dedications" as well as during the food/medicine distributions for the community. We have included instructions in each lantern package, written in Haitian Creole of course, so our Haitian friends will have a clear understanding of how the lanterns work, recharge, etc. Currently there is no to very limited power on the "main" road, and no power to the homes. Solar power now provides clean, renewable, inexpensive lighting. Lighting solutions prior to the LuminAID lanterns were limited to candles, wood fires, or kerosene lanterns, which are unsafe, unhealthy, and costly.

"To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is then with great joy and anticipation that we get to witness what he does in and with each missionary during your week in Haiti. We try our best to get things organized because there are some responsibilities we have as a group each week, but then we try to get out of the way and let God do his work in you and through you. We experience new things with each group which is always a blessing and each person brings special gifts to add to the journey. (Dr. David & Laura Fakier)

Many sick people have been healed after drinking and bathing in the waters of Lourdes, France. The water has elevated amounts of H2O2 (around 0.25%). Fr. Richard Willhelm says it best, "Lourdes Water is loaded with H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide) and Our Lady said to 'drink the water and bathe in it.'"
