Desarmes, Haiti Rss

Desarmes is the headquarters for our partner organization in Haiti - The Society of Christians in Haiti (SCH).  The church building at Desarmes was completely destroyed in the earthquake of 2010.  It was rebuilt in 2011 with the help of their THC partner church, Grace Baptist Church Cape Coral, Florida.  

The compound in Desarmes also includes of an orphanage that cares for approximately 20 children and a missionary house used by visiting mission teams.  

Additional land surranding the existing compound has recently been purchased to be used for the construction of a school, a larger orphanage, a vocational training center for teens, and an acquaponic food farm to support the orphanage.
