Senior Highs’ 2014 WorkCamp: Haiti
July 11–19, 2014
Haiti was once one of the wealthiest of the European colonies in the world, and today Haiti is currently the poorest country in the western hemisphere, ranking 204 out of 227 in the world with an estimated $1,200 per/person annual income. Along with these poverty issues in Haiti, the Port-au-Prince area was devastated by an earthquake in January of 2010.
Fourth Church Senior Highs will be partnering with Praying Pelican Mission to help serve the Haitian people as they continue to rebuild their communities.
More information about the trip is available here.
