Giving Hope and a Future in an Otherwise Hopeless Situation
LCC has supported the education of students from the tent city in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, since 2012.
Public and private education in Haiti costs money - there is NO free education. Our Lutheran schools also charge, but they are less expensive than the public schools. The cost of tuition is $50 per month.
In 2020 the school year was interrupted by civil unrest in Haiti and then COVID-19. Our students finished the year with online learning. This September, they will all return full-time to their classrooms.
This year four students will graduate from high school! Even though there is still unrest in Haiti, with protests nearly every week, the children have been faithful with their schoolwork and have been doing well in their classes.
Thank you to everyone who has supported these children as they seek an education. Your generosity provides them with hope for a better life.
Please consider sponsoring a child that they may have hope for their future and learn the wonders of the Lord!
"Tell to the children the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done." (Psalm 78:4)
There was a recent outbreak of scabies in the mountain area in Haiti. Most of the families have 5 to 11 children, and they were in desperate need of medicine. Because of your generous donations, they were able to run a two-day clinic and serve more than 400 people.
Our ministry partner, Mission:Haiti, continues to support the ongoing needs in Haiti.
LCC received the following urgent requests:
On Easter Sunday, food was distributed to 100 families in Haiti.
LCC received the following email from our mission partner, Lophane Laurent:
Blessings to you, my friends from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I want to thank you so much in my people's name for helping them in that hard time and sadness where many people lose their jobs and parents cannot feed their families. You can imagine what you are doing when you support Mission Haiti to continue sending money to do the food distribution. That means a lot for us in Haiti. Thanks please to all of the members of LCC and especially our sponsors and donors for helping to feed this week 100 families and especially that they will be able to have a special meal Sunday. May God bless you and your families and your ministries. My family and I wish you all a happy Easter. Yes, Jesus is Risen Indeed! Alleluia
Serving Jesus with joy,
Ministry in Mission supports the Center of Refuge orphanage located in The Lutheran Family Service compound in Jacmel, Haiti.
Currently, 37 children live there. The administrator recently asked for assistance to care for the health of the children. Many are sick and need medical assistance. Ministry in Mission has sent a doctor to assess the children to determine the quality of their health and recommend treatment if necessary. So far six children are in need of medication.
Lutheran Church Charities sends your donations to Haiti through our Haiti Mission Partners – Mission: Haiti & Ministry in Mission – who use them towards critical items needed to help save and improve the lives of the people of Haiti.
$30 buys 2 weeks of food for an elderly poor person and may mean the difference between life and death.
DONATE — FOOD FOR HAITIAN ADULTS AND CHILDREN
Your donations allowed Lutheran Church Charities to support the effort to bring a sea container with food, shoes, clothes, donated church pews and furnishings, and miscellaneous useful supplies to Haiti.
Your donations made Christmas special in Haiti for the orphans. The orphans had a gathering in the church to celebrate and receive food and gifts provided by generous donors like you.
Through Your Gifts, LCC Shared the Love of Jesus this Christmas with the Children in Haiti's Tent City
Through your generous donations, LCC was able to send the children a Christmas present of food. We received pictures of their Christmas party and this note from Lophane Laurent, Field Director, Mission:Haiti:
Blessings to you my friends from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I want to wish you a Merry Christmas from our kids in your program. They were so happy today to receive this gift from you and I want you please to thank all our sponsors and donors from the children and their parents. We gave two weeks of food for their families for Christmas in this difficult time. May God continue blessing you all and we will continue praying for you and your families and your ministry.
Thanks to Your Generous Donations, LCC was able to Provide Salaries for 49 Teachers in Haiti
Dear Friends of the Haitian Lutheran Mission Project,
Lophane and the principals of the 7 schools we support are wishing all our donors and followers a very blessed Christmas. We have been able to send each of our 49 teachers $200 (6 months salary of $25 per month plus a $50 bonus) in time for them to feed their families on Christmas.
Merry Christmas and many, many thanks.

NEW NEED - Small Shelter for Individuals and Families
$50 a year can provide a small shelter for individuals or families to live.
"From cradle to grave, the Ministry in Mission supports the poor in Haiti. Having just returned from Haiti we were blessed to visit those in need with the opportunity to provide food and share the love of Jesus Christ. These two individuals are representative of those we serve." - Jackie Rychel, Ministry in Mission
The elderly lady in the wheelchair lost her leg due to an infection and relies on neighbors to help. She also is in need of housing.
The little boy is waiting for his mother to get back with food. He is standing in front of an empty house where he used to live. His mother could not afford the $50 a year rent so she and her 4-year-old boy are homeless.
