Dayspring Ministries Haiti was on the ground providing food for the people in four tent cities in the Bon Repos area. We’re a non-profit with 99% of all monetary donations going directly to the Light & Peace Ministries in Bon Repos. Pastor Ronald Lefranc at Elgise Baptiste Lumiere et Paix is an honest man. He’s the director of our 50 child orphanage and with several committees directs 50 associated churches and many church schools. We received over $400,000 in donations for the 2010 earthquake and all were used specifically for relief. Dayspring Ministries has been a 501,3 organization since 1984.

+1 for Fonkoze which was started by Fr Joseph Phillipe C.C.Sp (the Spiritan Congregation) decades ago. They do great work along with the Haiti Parish Twinning Program. The HPTP has been remarkably successful in implementing sustainable, local development projects throughout Haiti including building schools, reforestation, and cooperative farming.
