Building a New Haiti
// Charlie DeTellis
It is a daunting task constructing and maintaining our school and church locations in Haiti. Thank the Lord for willing laborers.
Haitian workers are eager to rebuild their country. Site inspections take place at every location, and projects are prioritized. Sometimes roofs are painted and others actually need the roofing trusses and metal roofs replaced. In other cases an inferior building needs to be torn down and rebuilt. Currently, 200 school benches are being made. Infrastructure plays a vital role with enabling our schools and churches to function. We average six new school/church buildings each year. All building materials are purchased in Haiti, and the work is completed entirely by Haitian crews. Our most common tradesmen are: masons, carpenters, and painters. In addition, we hire even more specialized tradesmen such as electricians, plumbers, and metal fabricators.
Thank you for partnering with us in building a new Haiti. The school children love seeing their schools painted and new benches being delivered. Rebuilding and making repairs have been unending since the earthquake.
Fifty construction projects have been completed since 2010. We have another 50 buildings that still need to be constructed. All glory to the Lord for His strength, protection, and provision. We are eager to keep meeting the needs here in Haiti. ~Charlie DeTellis
