Haiti Partnership

Join HPUMC’s longest-standing global outreach ministry as we care for the medically underserved people we have come to know and love in Haiti.

We believe everyone deserves access to quality, affordable healthcare, but in Haiti, the majority of people rarely see a doctor or dentist. The earthquake in 2010 and hurricane in 2016 have only compounded problems as higher demand places even greater pressure on a medical system with few resources. Our work brings medical and dental care to thousands of Haitians each year! We send teams from the US and provide training and support to our Haitian partners, providing care and dignity in a place desperately in need of hope.

Follow Rev. Rasmussen's journey during his 2019 trip!

You can serve with us locally in a number of ways:

  • Become part of our committee here at the church
  • Help clean, read and package eyeglasses being sent to Haiti so someone can receive the gift of sight
  • Help with preparation and shipping of supplies
  • Purchase items from our AmazonSmile wish list and they will be shipped directly to Haiti

Throughout the year we collect items for mission trips to transport to Haiti. Some items we need are:

  • Gently used glasses (prescription or reading)
  • Children’s and adult sunglasses
  • Artificial tear drops (in new, sealed packages)
  • Toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss

Donated items can be left at the welcome desk outside Wesley Hall with a note that says, “Haiti”.

Finding joy in the simple things

There are times in life where I think it is safe to say we can get bogged down by the materialist mindset that is commonplace living in America. Not to say that we should feel bad for where we were born, but we have to remember that it’s not our ‘stuff’ that defines who we are. Rather, it’s only through Christ that we can truly know who we are. Read more >>

History of Haiti Ministry

HPUMC's work in Haiti began in 1975 under the leadership of Rev. Leighton Farrell, Rev. Ken Dickson, and Dr. O.L. Willbanks. Since 1975, the HPUMC Haiti partnership has sent over 80 mission teams and now employs two Haitian Ophthalmologists, a Haitian general medicine doctor, several Haitian nurses, lab technicians and support staff who see patients year-round. An expansion of both facilities and services is underway to bring year-round dental and women’s health care to the people of Petit Goave.
