The Country of Haiti

 
Haiti is widely recognized as the poorest country in the entire Western Hemishphere. 

More than 80% of the population lives in abject poverty and more than 70% of the people are unemployed. The United Nations has designated Haiti the 3rd hungriest country in the world with more than 40% of the rural population being malnourished.

 

How We Started

Living Hope Haiti Christian Mission was founded in 2002 by Rev Dr Gueillant Dorcinvil and Calvin Babcock. They started by building a Christian Elementary School - Mary Babcock Elementary - on six acres of land donated by Gueillant's father, Celiphene Dorcinvil. The location of this school, and the headquarters of the mission, is four miles northwest of St Michel de Attalaye in Northern Haiti.

Growth

The mission has grown over the years to include 5 schools, 4 churches, an orphanage, a guest house, a medical clinic, a visiting surgical program, and a variety of other programs.

Working in Haiti is incredibly difficult for foreigners. Our mission is successful because of Rev Dorcinvil’s ability to administer our work in a manner that glorifies God.
— Calvin Babcock
 
 

Calvin and Gueillant make a great team. They credit the Lord for putting them together in 2002, when both felt the Lord's leading to start working in Haiti.

 

Calvin is the CFO for the organization, and has a strong background as a Christian businessman, having earned an MBA at Harvard.

Rev Dorcinvil has a PhD, and was recently elected Mayor of his hometown of St Michel.

 

Together, Calvin, Gueillant and their wives make a great team to guide Living Hope Haiti towards the future of helping more Haitians in Northern Haiti.

 

We would love to hear from you and keep you up to date with our newsletter.
