Bio of Lloyd Duplantis

Lloyd and his wife Faie along with a core group from St. Bridget parish in Schriever, Louisiana formed Haiti Mission, Inc. after visiting Haiti in 2000. The primary focus of the mission is to develop safe and sufficient water supplies in the area in which they are working. The mission has also begun initiatives in education, various forms of humanitarian aid and animal husbandry.

Haiti Mission, Inc has been actively drilling water wells since 2007 when they were able to bring in their first cable tool rig. They successfully drilled 14 wells over the course of three years. Another organization contacted them about beginning a drilling operation in another region of Haiti so the trailer mounted rig was sold and another 20-W cable tool rig was built onto a six wheel drive International truck. This new rig has now drilled 36 wells (as of the end of the fiscal year 2015) and is capable of accessing much more difficult terrain than the previous rig.

Haiti Mission, Inc. has as its primary goal to bring potable water to within 500 feet of everyone in the region by systematically drilling wells and building catchment systems as funding comes available.

Lloyd and his wife, Faie have been married forty-nine years (as of January 27th, 2017), have seven children and twenty-three grand children. They reside in Gray, LA and are active in local civic and church organizations. Lloyd is a deacon in the diocese of Houma-Thibodaux assigned to St.Mary’s Nativity Parish in Raceland, La.
