Mission of Hope Haiti

International Partner

Watermark first got involved in Haiti following the devastating earthquake in 2010. But our goal was always to find an incredible partner who knew the people and their needs, and to remain far after the cameras and international spotlight left. Fortunately, we have been able to accomplish both of those things.

Mission of Hope Haiti serves a region of Haiti north of Port-au-prince through a school, an orphanage, food distribution, and local construction that builds homes for families. MOH also provides medical care to the region, including providing prosthetic limbs to those who need them. Through Watermark's long-term partner with Mission of Hope, we have seen our work continue to progress and now have the chance to partner with and impact an entire village in our return trips to the country.

Currently, Mission of Hope is reaching folks in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Turks and Caicos.

Watermark’s Discipleship Trips with Mission of Hope are a powerful way for individuals or groups to make an impact and be impacted, and these trips serve as a "first step" international experience for many of our members. We take several trips each year; individuals are encouraged to apply, but Haiti trips are also excellent for groups. Recent trips have involved Youth, Families, College Students, Young Adults, Medical Professionals, and re:generation participants. Training for these trips generally involves 5-6 meetings across a 2-month period.

Mission of Hope Trips?

Several ministries are currently scheduling trips for their leaders or for any of their participants! We also love when people already connected plan a trip together (as a community group, with Watermark volunteers at an external ministry, groups of friends, etc.).

If you're interested in taking a Mission of Hope Trip (other than the trips listed above), here are the steps to take:

  • Read through the requirements for all our International Discipleship Trips here
  • Ask the leaders of ANY ministry you participate in if they're planning to take a Haiti trip as a group. (If not, we'd love to talk with them about it!)
  • If you don't fit a currently planned trip, contact Karen Bundren at kbundren@watermark.org to let her know you're interested in going on (or helping form) a Haiti Trip

You can get a great picture of what's been happening through blog posts from past trips at watermarkblogs.org/haiti. For more on Mission of Hope and its longtime impact in Haiti, check out www.mohhaiti.org.
