Sharing the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean, Haiti’s natural beauty ranges from azure waters to tropical foliage. Haiti was the first nation to claim independence through a successful rebellion against slavery. But despite all of this natural and cultural wealth, Haiti remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and battles with political corruption, a lack of infrastructure, ineffective NGO response, an extremely young population and work force, and widespread economic disparities. A tragic earthquake devastated Port-au-Prince in 2010, leaving over 300,000 people dead and Haiti in overwhelming poverty and disrepair.
COMMUNAUTE DE GLOIRE (GLORY GLORY CENTER)
PASTOR SAMUEL METELUS
Our partner Pastor Samuel Metelus and his team at the Glory Glory Center care for 50+ children who were orphaned by Haiti’s 2010 earthquake. As an extension of his father, Pastor Joseph Metelus’s church, Church of God by Faith, Pastor Samuel is absolutely devoted to educate, love, and train the children in his care to become next generation leaders and be the change that Haiti so desperately needs. Furthermore, Pastor Samuel’s ministry extends to the surrounding communities as the Church becomes a center of hope, care, healing, opportunity and development in Southern Haiti and beyond.
