Restore Haiti has a succinct vision to feed, educate and provide medical attention to those in Jacmel, Haiti and has done a great job and loving on the people in that community.
I'm going on my first trip with a team to Haiti in January, and I can't wait!
I love that Restore Haiti is a cause my whole family can be involved in. I have taken 3 of my children on mission trips to Haiti to and have enjoyed sharing this experience with them. When you go on a trip to Haiti you can see where your donations are going and how they are impacting lives. I have no doubts that my money is being used appropriately to truly make a difference.
My 12 year old son went to Haiti and when he came home he was not the same boy who left. He came back with a heart of a servant and a love for the people of Haiti. He can't wait to go back!
My family has experienced a great deal of positives from traveling with Restore Haiti (Hope Restored). Our eyes and hearts were opened to life change, humility, cultural enrichment, and life long friendships to name a free. We gladly and confidently provide a positive review for this team.

This was my second trip, march 2014, with Restore Haiti. We were a part of a team that included 6 children and 9 adults. It was a great and life changing trip. Having children as part of the team was great. The interactions they had with the Haitian kids was priceless. Our team was involved in a home construction project, daily visits to a school, serving with the daily feeding program, and just loving on the people. I was also able to see my sponsored child and give her a gift and spend some time. I saw many of the same kids from the first trip in 2013 and it was great to see progress and how they are cared for. Our team was well taken care of from the time we got picked up from the airport, to where we stayed, and to the food we ate. Coming from America, food and weather can be big roadblocks, but we were well prepared beforehand with the information that we needed and we were always looked after during the week. Seeing first hand and being part of the work they do, I highly endorse Restore Haiti, from their sponsorship program to their short term trips.
I went on my first trip with Restore Haiti in March and the impact has been life changing. When we first got there, traveling through Port-Au-Prince I was shocked at the conditions of the city - I've never seen anything like it. Traveling through the mountains to Jacmel - I kept thinking, "There are good things in Haiti, Lord show me the good things here." I have to admit I struggled with the disparity of Haiti- things were either very beautiful or very horrible. Sitting in the small cinder block church on simple wooden benches with a community of believers worshiping our Lord, I saw the beautiful things in Haiti. Meeting my sponsor kids for the first time, hugging the preschoolers everyday at playtime, greeting the kids in the feeding program with a smile and eye contact everyday~ I saw the good things in Haiti. Having kids come up and just want to touch me or hold my hand~ there are so many good things in Haiti and Restore Haiti is making it possible for anyone to be a part of all the good things the Lord is doing there~we had 6 children under the age of 12 on our team and the impact on them will last throughout their lives...and mine.

If you sponsor a child, most organizations send you a picture, here you can hug your child and they hug you back. This is my 6th Haiti trip and every trip I see improvement in conditions, education and attitudes. These children are precious. I am 72 years old and can still hug a child.
I have 3 in Haiti and can't wait to go back. Remember children are 25% of the worlds population and 100% of the future. God bless Restore Haiti.

I recently participated in my first trip with Restore Haiti (Hope Restored) to Jacmel in my capacity as director of missions for our church New River Fellowship. Our church has financially supported RH for several years and in the interest of full disclosure both the founder of RH and the executive director are personal friends and members of our church. With that background I can say I was extremely impressed with the work taking place in Haiti. The school, feeding program and the home building programs are meeting tremendous needs in this community. The poverty is beyond description yet the children are being well cared for and are learning not only book knowledge but tangible life skills that will serve them for ever. Most importantly they are meeting and building relationships with people that are demonstrating the love of the Father. I know RH to be fiscally responsible and they really care for their volunteers. It is easy to see why volunteers fall in love with the people of Haiti and return time after time!
I honestly had to wait until I had decompressed and processed my most recent trip to Jacmel, Haiti through Restore Haiti. This was the 3rd trip I've been on with this organization, and I am pleased to say that I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The lives of the people in the community are changing. The children are healthy, and happy. They are fed, and schooled. They are learning english. Every dollar coming into the organization is going to directly serve those who need it most. This trip impacted me so deeply. I am thankful, and grateful for organizations like Restore Haiti who do, what they say, they will do.
