Success Stories

New Truck

Father's new Toyota Land Cruiser was recently delivered and will allow him to travel the mountain roads with people and supplies to minister to the 10 chapels in his parish. The truck was purchased with funds raised at the fall dinner event in 2016 with a lot of help from Adveniat, an agency of the Catholic Church in Germany that assists the Latin American Churches.

Current Project

water supply

Our project to provide clean, potable water to several areas of Côtes-de-Fer was completed on July 22, 2016.  The picture above shows the completed distribution station in the village.  Thank you to the many donors and our partners "World Water Relief" for making this important project a reality. We are now investigating our second clean water project to be located in the mountain village of Metayer where epidemics of Cholera frequently occur especially during the rainy season.  Please help us fund this project.
