starvation crisis due to gang activities

20 23

In October of 2022, PCCR responded to the crisis in Haiti, and out of the food distributions and the work in prisons emerged a need for a long-term solution for Haiti’s prisoners. There isn’t a single halfway house or any rehabilitation programs available for prisoners in Haiti. A five-year long judicial crisis in the country has created some of the worst overcrowding that Haiti has ever seen. Many inmates, including minors, have been imprisoned for years without formally being charged with a crime. But due to our focus being on crisis response rather than long-term, we were seeking to hand the work over to others. After considering other options, a new organization has been established under the leadership of Andy Faller: Haiti Prison and Rehabilitation Ministry.

Haiti Prison and Rehabilitation Ministry

Transforming prisoners through love and discipleship

The vision of HPRM is to create a US based organization that partners with the broader conservative Anabaptist community to reach those who are imprisoned in Haiti, and also to reach beyond the prisons by creating a re-integration program for those newly released from prison.
Andy has been the director of the work in Haiti for the past year and has many years of experience with the Haitian culture and missions, including the pitfalls of aid gone wrong. He is now directing the work under this new organization and we’re excited to transfer everything regarding Haiti into his care.

Leogane Flood

In the beginning of June, we sent a team in to help with a flood response in Leogane.  Haiti had been experiencing droughts, followed by torrents of rain. Typically, the amount of rain would not cause floods, but the waterways, which are normally serviced by the town authorities were full of trash, causing a buildup and then, when the water broke through, a solid 8ft wall of water that swept through Leogane. Many people lost their livelihoods and possessions and an already difficult life got much harder. 

We had a team there for four weeks, helping with the flood cleanup and visiting the work in Haiti.
