In 2010, a small group of Rock volunteers visited Jeremie, Haiti to help with relief efforts after the earthquake that killed over 300,000 Haitians and left the country in ruins.
Deeply moved by the devastation and desperate needs they saw, we decided to Do Something to help. Our first project was to simply rent a small house to take in as many abandoned babies as we could but we continued to work towards a long-term solution. We faced great obstacles at every step. Rock missionaries and volunteers have made great personal sacrifices, but we have also seen God provide miracle solutions at every step.
Today we have multiple exciting projects that effectively share the Gospel and establish Pervasive Hope in Jeremie.
Caring for abandoned children.
Providing clean water to neighborhoods and villages.
Providing essential food to 800+ children per day.
Raising up the next generation of Haitian leaders.
Rebuilding homes and roofs destroyed by Hurricane Matthew.
Seed distribution and profit-sharing programs to help farmers restore crops destroyed by hurricane Matthew.
LINDSAY // HAITI
Brothers Schnyderson (2nd grade) & Schnyder (Kinder) come from what you would call a pretty difficult home life. Their mom has 9 children, & several fathers.
When not wandering around the corridors of their slum neighborhood they sleep in a shack off the side of someone else’s house, covered with partial tarp and partial rusty sheet metal that is filled with holes. These boys are mostly on their own.
They get their own buckets of water to bathe, get ready for school, and walk themselves to school because their mom might not yet be out of bed. They love school and don’t want to miss it.
There was a point in time where Schnyderson and Schnyder missed the first couple days of school.
So I went to visit their home…
