The joy of being present in every moment, giving and receiving the abundance of love was overwhelming; and a heart stretched with the sufferings of Jesus, this was a spiritually moving experience. Dorothy Russell, SSJ Associate

Mission Haiti is an amazing organization. Mission Haiti partners with Haitians to support sustaining projects. In addition to supporting projects in education, agriculture, and care for the elderly - Mission Haiti supports individual Haitians to accomplish their hopes and dreams.

I am lucky enough to say I experienced what an incredible nonprofit Mission Haiti Inc is and witnessed what outstanding work that is being done by this group. I travelled with the president Jimmy Dunn, a few board members, and a couple other volunteers who wanted to see what was truly being done in Haiti by our nonprofit. I got to play and talk with kids from three different schools that Mission Haiti donates to and learn more about what they learn in school and how much they enjoy it. I was able to see and learn what more can be done for these kids, and being a college student myself, I was able to see what ideas that Mission Haiti has that can help the kids develop. We were able to see what the farm system project that we are funding looks like, and what improvements are needed to make this a better functioning and useful tool for the Haitians. The president showed us how much improvement has already been made so far and I really could not imagine what they would have to do for food without the improvements that Mission Haiti has funded and helped build. The last big project that I was fortunate enough to experience was the elderly homes that Mission Haiti strives to make as comfortable and helpful as possible. We spent a day giving the elderly women a "spa day" by massaging them, motioning their dry hands and feet, and painting their finger nails. I was able to learn first-hand how important it is to take care of these women who otherwise would be alone and dying on the streets, whereas they are given a much better life here at the home that Mission Haiti supports. Overall, seeing all that Mission Haiti Inc does and pushes to do in the future makes me realize that this is a nonprofit that I want to be involved with for the rest of my life.

Mission Haiti Inc is an organization that incorporates it's community in a truly magical way. The opportunities it allows its volunteers to have is one that allows each volunteer to connect with the charity on a personal level. The trips it organizes, in addition to the stories and passion it brings back to Minnesota has ignited a community to truly give itself to this cause. The relationship this organization allows its volunteers to forge with the Haitians they encounter makes the connections to it even stronger and because of this it is allowing multiple generations to be involved in a worthy cause.

I've had the privilege and opportunity to see the good works of Mission Haiti in action over the past 10 years through volunteering and other benefits. Most recently had the opportunity to take a trip to Haiti and personally witness the good works of Mission Haiti. last month with my parents, son, family members and friends. I witnessed the resources of Mission Haiti put to work building a sustainable model through education, health and wellness, nutrition and agriculture. But most of all, I had the benefit of seeing firsthand the devotion, commitment, love and resources of Mission Haiti and the life changing effect this mission has on the lives of so many.

Mission Haiti Inc. granted me the opportunity to witness, learn about, and experience Haiti in an entirely novel way. On my trip I was I able to see the both the sorrows, and overwhelming joys of the resilient and determined Haitian people, and to participated in meaningful dialogue about the struggles they face. Furthermore, I was inspired to see the incredible work Mission Haiti has been doing in Haiti for over ten years and was left with a sense of promise and a desire to continue working with Mission Haiti to bring about sustained change.

Mission Haiti is a fantastic organization, it is absolutely the best non-profit that I have worked with. I have known about Mission Haiti since I was in kindergarten. My elementary school, Annunciation, supports a sister school down in Haiti. Through Mission Haiti, I have been able to learn about the children down there as well as the Adults and Culture. My senior year in high school I traveled with Mission Haiti to Haiti. I was able to see the children we have supported, ages kindergarten to University. Being able to travel to Haiti and see what I have supported and cared about was an amazing experience.

I grew up hearing a lot about Haiti. It was something else to go there myself. I went to Haiti last summer and it was an experience I'll never forget. To see how people live in developing countries was extremely eye opening. Mission Haiti pushed me out of my comfort zone by taking care of babies and interacting with people of a different culture. I hope to volunteer again ASAP.

My husband and all of our children have traveled to Haiti in the last couple years with members of the MHI board. I just can't say enough good things about what MHI is doing to change the lives of those in desperate need of help. I can say with confidence, after witnessing it with my own eyes and ears and hands and heart, that every penny our family donates is used in the most thoughtful, meaningful manner to help the people in Haiti.

Mission Haiti has been a part of my life since I was a little kid, I was always hearing about Haiti, sending school supplies, and raising money. My senior year of High School I had the opportunity to travel to Haiti for the first time and again this past summer. Both of my trips were amazing, thanks to the dedicated leaders and volunteers of Mission Haiti. I am so grateful and proud to be part of such an amazing Non-Profit!

This past summer I was lucky enough to travel to Haiti with Mission Haiti Inc. The work they do in Haiti is amazing! They support a primary school in Leogane as well as provide scholarships for students. In addition they support a sustainable farm in Leogane which provides food for schools in the area. Mission Haiti is passionate about their work and they are really making a difference!

This summer I was fortunate enough to travel to Haiti with Mission Haiti. Through this incredible organization I was able to experience the gentle spirits of the Haitian people. On this trip I was able to work with Haitian children, visit the Farm, and see the Annunciation School facilities. After going on this trip I know that every dollar being donated to MH is being put to good use to help ensure a better future for the people in Haiti. MH is dedicated to providing a better life of sustainability and quality for the people down there. Not only is Mission Haiti extending a helping hand to the people in Haiti, it also allows people within it's own community to be changed as well through their experiences. I was so happy to give a little bit of my time down in Haiti and know that someday I will be back.

Traveling to Haiti with the Mission Haiti Family was an incredibly humbling experience. Haitians are incredibly hopeful and value every interaction they have. Working with the children who crave interaction with their whole being was the most rewarding experience I had. I fell in love with so many kids at the hospital down there, and I hope I made some smidge of a difference in their lives, because they changed mine. Mission Haiti is an incredible non profit that gives so many people the opportunity to serve Haitians and have some understanding of the struggles in Haiti. Mission Haiti does make a difference.

Mission Haiti inc is an amazing organization that brings down people of all ages to volunteer and experience Haiti first hand. This past summer I was able to go to Haiti with Mission Haiti and without their dedicated members this opportunity would not have been possible for me. I was so glad to be able to give my time to see and make a difference in Haiti. Mission Haiti runs two schools, a farm, and a home for women in Leogane, and also volunteers with the Missionaries of Charity in Port-au-Prince.

I was fortunate enough to travel with Mission Haiti in June 2014, something I had been looking forward to for 4 years. I learned so much about myself through our service, but even more importantly I learned about the reality of what is going on in Haiti and how much more there is still left to do. The people we met really could not have been more hospitable and I am so grateful I had this opportunity. My favorite thing about Mission Haiti is that those in leadership positions make very careful decisions regarding funding and other services to give as much benefit as possible to those who need it. They also showed us that you don't have to be rich or powerful to make a difference; anyone can do something as long as it's done with great love!

Visiting Haiti with Mission Haiti, Inc. was something I've wanted to do for some time now. When the opportunity arose to go I grabbed that chance and went in June. Every moment was valuable from the people I traveled with, the babies we cared for, the elderly women that we met, our time spent with the students of Annunciation and exploring the farm. Mission Haiti, Inc. is striving for sustainability and dignity for the people of Haiti.
