Review for Mission Haiti Inc, Minneapolis, MN, USA
I was first introduced to Mission Haiti when a friend of mine took a mission trip to Haiti. One year later, I was fortunate enough to travel with the president of Mission Haiti himself and other volunteers to educate ourselves with the challenges that Haiti faces and better understand how impactful this organization truly is. It was an incredible opportunity to learn and see how Mission Haiti is making a difference.
We took trips to 3 of the schools that MH supports, where we spent time playing with the kids, shadowing their classes, and understanding where they need more resources and how MH can provide solutions. There is so much promise and hope with these kids and I was surrounded by so many beautiful smiles the entire time. We took a trip to Bethleen farm, where I learned just how impactful and necessary a sustainable farm can be. I take for granted how easy it is for me to get food at a grocery store, even just getting clean water, and I was blown away seeing how well they utilize this farm to provide for the Haitians in the community. We also had the chance to stop by the Elder home. It was so much fun to give the residents their very own “spa day” - doing their nails, massaging their hands and feet, and trying to provide a little entertainment with some dance and song.
It is such a beautiful country and I can’t wait to have the opportunity to make this trip again soon. Until then, I am so happy to know that Mission Haiti will continue their work by applying our donations directly to these resources they have within the country.
