WHO WE ARE
BEM is a non-profit organization established in 1984, based in Cheshire, Connecticut and Les Cays, Haiti. Our focus is empowering Haitians through education and opportunities to learn life skills. BEM’s goal is centered also on the prevention and eradication of disease promoting improved health through medical clinics in some of the most neglected areas of southern Haiti. BEM has a long history and successful record, receiving awards for its humanitarian efforts in Haiti.
WHAT WE DO
BEM conducts multiple mission trips each year to Haiti, including both construction and medical teams. We also provide education to the Pastors through bi-weekly Pastor education, the annual Pastors Conference and Grand Convention. Currently, we are in the process of building Mercy Hospital, to provide state of the art health care to the people is southern Haiti where health care is so limited.
WHY WE DO IT
We serve Christ by answering His call to bring His glorious gospel wherever we go and by being His hands and feet - giving, serving, listening, healing, helping, training. Our longterm goal in all our trips to Haiti is to replace the Haitian mindset of Western dependency wherever it exists and instead empower and cultivate the resilient Haitians to be the answer to their own country's many needs.
