MERCY HOSPITAL

Les Cayes, Haiti

BEM is currently building Mercy Hospital, a state-of-the-art healthcare facility. Mission teams work alongside Haitian nationals to construct this much-needed facility. Visit the GO-ICS Initiative site to learn more or click here for a photo timeline.

MEDICAL TRIPS

Trained medical personnel are needed to serve in BEM Clinics, run by Haitians and Americans in an effort to provide employment as well as the best care possible. We also operate mobile clinics in 12 villages, set up in well-known churches, visiting each village at least twice a year. 

CONSTRUCTION TRIPS

These teams focus on construction and maintenance in a variety of locations; currently our primary construction task is Mercy Hospital. There is work for anyone–from certified tradesmen to those willing to wield a paintbrush.

EDUCATION

Teams with educational experience are needed to develop and lead teacher training seminars as well as instruct Haitian pastors and leaders through the BEM Institute for Theological Studies. 

ORPHANAGE VISITS

In Creole, "Restavec" is a term used for children who are sent to live with other families as slaves. Restavec Freedom Alliance is providing a safe, family centered environment in two Homes of Refuge, each with a Pastor’s families as the supporting parents. Learn more at RFAHaiti.org.

MY HAITI STORY

After each trip to Haiti, Pastor Lubin asks our team members to write a description of their experience, whether this was their first or 20th visit to Haiti. Each one reveals discoveries they have made about themselves, life and the beautiful land and people of Haiti. Read their reflections here.
