Aid for Haiti is built on a foundation of prayer and is committed to changing lives in Haiti through Christ-centered spiritual ministry, medical care, and training to equip Haitians to serve their own communitiesAid for Haiti was birthed out of an invitation to treat a rare condition affecting a village in a remote region of Haiti, when a group of like minded doctors were stirred to pioneer an organization that would, through prayer, combine the gospel of Christ, medical care and training for service to see lives changed and individuals released from physical suffering and spiritual bondage. Through all we do, we seek to glorify Jesus Christ and express his love to the Haitian people. Please consider joining us in this mission.

En pleine révolution industrielle, à la fin du XIXè siècle, le pasteur William Booth est choqué par les conditions de vie indignes du monde ouvrier notamment dans l’Est de Londres. Il va créer en 1865 ce qui allait devenir en 1878 l’Armée du Salut pour répondre aux besoins matériels et spirituels des plus démunis. Aux femmes et aux hommes vivant dans des conditions de vie et de détresse révoltantes, William Booth propose d’assouvir leurs aspirations spirituelles et besoins matériels.
Le pasteur, en quête d’efficacité, s’inspire du modèle militaire pour structurer une « armée » afin de répondre aux besoins élémentaires et de redonner des conditions de vie décentes aux plus démunis, conditions nécessaires pour qu’ils puissent trouver Dieu. Une triple mission résumée dans sa devise “Soup, Soap, Salvation” !
Seize ans plus tard, une femme franchit la Manche pour porter la mission de l’Armée du Salut en France. Nous sommes en 1881 et elle se nomme Catherine Booth. Dans le sillage de son père, elle veut “veut sauver les âmes et secourir les êtres”. Avec l’aide des jeunes officières qui l’accompagnent elle va réussir sa mission et faire ainsi de la France le premier pays d’Europe où l’Armée du Salut s’implante.
Entre 1914 et 1918, l’Armée du Salut crée des “Foyers du soldat” pour venir en aide aux aux soldats, aux veuves et aux orphelins de la Première Guerre mondiale, ses actions lui permettront d’être reconnue et appréciée en France. Dans les deux décennies qui suivent la Grande Guerre, l’oeuvre de l’Armée du Salut se développe notamment sous l’impulsion du couple Albin et Blanche Peyron.
Des années 1920 aux années 1930, plusieurs grands établissements de l’Armée du Salut sont construits comme le Palais de la Femme, la Cité de Refuge, Le Palais du Peuple, la Résidence Catherine Booth.
En 1931, l’Association des Oeuvres Françaises de Bienfaisance de l’Armée du Salut (AOFBAS), reconnue d’utilité publique, est créée ce qui permet à l’Armée du Salut de recevoir des dons et legs et de les affecter aux projets en cours. La même année, les premières Soupes de nuit sont distribuées dans les rues de Paris.
Durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, l’Armée du Salut et l’AOFBAS sont dissoutes par les autorités de Vichy. Mais le travail se poursuit jusqu’à la Libération, sous couvert de la Fédération protestante de France et de la Communauté des Diaconesses de Reuilly.
A l’issue du second conflit mondial, l’Armée du Salut relance son activité notamment en faveur de la jeunesse. Elle développe des actions pédagogiques, met en place des maisons d’enfants et des centres d’apprentissage. Des partenariats avec les pouvoirs publics et les acteurs du champ social voient le jour. Membre fondateur de la Banque Alimentaire, en 1984, l’Armée du Salut participe aux dispositifs de lutte contre les exclusions, organise et gère des structures d’accueil d’urgence et crée des logements sociaux.
En 1994, pour distinguer la gestion de l’action sociale et celle de l’oeuvre d’évangélisation, l’Armée du Salut adopte de nouveaux statuts. La Congrégation de l’Armée du Salut, qui regroupe l’ensemble des officiers poursuit la mission spirituelle et évangélique. Tandis que l’AOFBAS gère les établissements à caractère social.

APF (The Association of the Peasants of Fondwa) is national NGO of Haiti focused on grassroots development and empowerment in rural communities. APF aims to provide tools and resources that allow peasants to pull themselves out of poverty.
Over the past 25 years, APF has worked in the village of Fondwa and surrounding communities to develop clean drinking water, a road connecting hard to reach villages, a primary and secondary school, health clinic, radio station, credit union, and guest house.
In 2004, the University of Fondwa (UNIF) was established. As the only university in all of rural Haiti, UNIF provides higher education to students coming from extremely remote areas. UNIF students return to their home communities throughout their course of study to share their knowledge of agronomy, business management, and veterinary medicine.
On January 12, 2010, most of the infrastructure built by APF was destroyed, and Fondwa suffered many losses. However, the APF community is hopeful for the future. Since 2010, the APF has remobilized, and is using the resources and partnerships available to us to rebuild and restore all that had been lost.
We have constructed a temporary university for the students, and have converted shipping containers into dormitories. We are now process of rebuilding our primary school, Saint Antoine. Please explore the different photo albums in the gallery to view our progress.
All of our programs are based in Fondwa, however our headquarters are based in Port-au-Prince.
Fondwa is a small community village in the western province of Haiti between Léogane and Jacmel. It is the 10th Communal Section of Léogane and about 30 minutes apart from Jacmel and Léogane. Fondwa is 80 kilometers from Port-au-Prince, a 2 hour-drive. The region has a total area of 28 square kilometers and a population of 8,000 people. Fondwa is a mountainous region and more than 80% of the population is peasants. More than 50% of the population is less than 20 years old. There are 6 other rural communities which benefit from the work of APF, about 50,000 individuals all together.

On Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 4:53pm the nation of Haiti was ravaged with an earthquake that measured 7.0. The epicenter of the earthquake was in the town of Leogane. The residents of Leogane and the nation of Haiti will never be the same.
Soon after the earthquake, the Georgia Baptist Convention sent a scouting team to see how we as Baptists churches from the U.S. could minister to the people of Leogane. They rented a house in the city, affectionately named it the Georgia House and began to bring teams into minister to those devastated by the disaster.
In partnership with the Georgia Baptist Convention, Baptists 4 Haiti, Inc. is continuing the ministry started by GBC Disaster Relief. Baptists 4 Haiti took over the Georgia House and the surrounding ministries in November 2011 and started full swing with volunteers in February this year. Since February we have had over 150 volunteers who have ministered to more than 5,000 Haitian people. So far our missionaries and teams have had the privilege of being involved in leading 57 people to a new relationship with Jesus Christ! These teams have built a roof for a church, a kitchen for an orphanage and completed their well, and have been able to meet physical needs of nearly 1,500 Haitian people through mobile medical clinics.
We have committed to rebuilding 26 homes and 15 churches. It is our prayer that many more churches, ministries, and individuals will come alongside to support and partner with our efforts. We are looking for 100 churches and organizations to partner with us to continue God’s ministry to the people of Leogane, Haiti. We are asking for each church or organization to contribute at least $1,000, pray, and send teams throughout the year. Will you help? Either by partnering financially or sending teams or both!
We would like to thank the following churches, individuals, families, and associations who are partnering with us.
During my repeated travels to Haiti, I’ve seen the conditions in my homeland continually deteriorate, and in fact, reach the depths of despair after the earthquake that ravaged the region. I am called to take action. I must make a difference. My heart cannot bear the hopelessness and despair of my countrymen and fellow human beings. In fulfillment to my calling from God, I am taxed with the daunting task of establishing a school and orphanage in Léogâne, Haiti, one of the most devastated areas of the country.
I pledge to do everything in my power to create a successful mission with the help of God, my family, and those willing to assist me.

We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been serving the same communities in Haiti for nearly twenty years. Originally known simply as the Cabaret Baptist Children’s Home, we began as a ministry of the Jacksonville Baptist Association in 1998.
Through locally-led programs and strategic partnerships with other organizations, we are able to provide health care, education for children and adults, employment, orphan care, and share the hope of a life in Christ.
Pastor Sonja Dickherber visited this area while helping with a dental clinic on a short-term mission trip in 1994. Walking through the streets of Anse-A-Galets (“on-SOG-ah-LAY”) on the island of LaGonave, she was struck by the hopelessness of the people there, and knew that God was calling her to do something to help. With much prayer, after spending a year in Anse-A-Galets, Sonja and her husband Jerry incorporated Celebrate Jesus of Haiti, Inc. as a 501C3 organization with the mission to improve the lives of the people there on three levels: Spirit, Soul and Body. They made the decision to pay their own expenses and to receive no salary or airfare reimbursements for their work. Only Haitians who are chosen to do certain jobs receive a salary from the mission. This very unusual arrangement means that virtually everything that’s given to the ministry is spent to improve the lives of the Haitian people.
