Hand in Hand with Haiti 2020
March 6, 2020 - March 23, 2020
All EMAS Haiti Team members need to be able to function independently in French. The team will be going for two weeks within this time period.
The EMAS Haiti project, called Hand in Hand with Haiti, is a partnership between EMAS Canada and the El Shaddai Church community in Port-au-Prince. This healthcare teaching team will spend three weeks in Haiti.
Hand in Hand with Haiti has four major areas of focus:
- A Preschool, Primary and Junior High program that offers its students and staff a cooked meal every school day
- An annual teaching team (including students), providing primary healthcare and dental services since 2004
- An earthquake and hurricane resistant construction project, in partnership with Engineering Ministries International (eMi), which includes a large gathering space, two school buildings, kitchen, guesthouse, water, sanitation and healthcare clinic. We were there to celebrate the opening of the new building in 2016.
- Public engagement events here in Canada, which focus on raising both awareness and funds.
By working ‘hand in hand’ with the El Shaddai Church community, this project provides a beacon of hope, that points to a better future for this Haitian neighbourhood.
