Anchor of Hope, Haiti
In August 2017, Anchor of Hope, Haiti (AOHH) was formed by a partnership between Haitian and American Christian friends. AOHH is a 401C3 non-profit organization to help support a small, very poor community near Arcahaie, Haiti. . AOHH provides spiritual, financial and material infrastructure support for these Christian ministries in this mountain settlement.
School of Hope, Arcahaie is a very low cost educational school for over 300 children. Our school provides education from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade, providing a vital Christian education and dietetically designed meals from Medical Food for Kids and Feed My Starving Children. We employ over 30 staff members who teach, cook, clean, repair, maintain and secure the school campus to provide a safe place to learn.
Manna of Hope Nourishment Center opened in January 2019, as a ministry to provide the infrastructure for Haitian midwives and mountain matrons to serve the pregnant women and their infants in the community. Pregnant women are fed spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally. This is attained through individual prayer, monthly prenatal and post-natal education and medical screening as well as weekly coursework to the otherwise untrained mountain matrons for optimum medical care for mothers and infants. We also provide food, prenatal vitamins and supplies for the matrons for delivery of babies. As needed, we provide referrals and transportation to local hospitals for medical needs or complications. Our goal is to meet the needs of this most fragile population in an area where maternal and infant death is the highest in the Western Hemisphere. With help and education, many of these conditions are preventable.
Hebrews 6:19a NIV “…this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”
