Servanthood Opportunities In Haiti
For nearly two decades Parkway Presbyterian has been actively engaged in ministry in Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Nearly 100 members of the congregation have traveled to Haiti over the years on mission team experiences. We cooperate in our mission to Haiti with two ecumenical organizations, both of which have a long history of work in Haiti. Recently our teams have had a medical focus, but non-medical members have been actively involved in the trips as well. Both of the missions which Parkway supports are joint efforts of Presbyterians and Episcopalians.
Childrens Nutrition Program
The CNP focuses on the health and nutrition of the Haitians in the Leogane Commune. The work is focused on programs that enhance the nutrition of children and families, help provide drinking water and sponsor community medical clinics and ongoing programs. A detailed description of the mission of CNP can be found at www.cnphaiti.org. Members of our congregation continue to serve on the guiding boards of this program which is a non-denominational, faith-based mission.
CODEP is focused on reforestation of the mountains south of Leogane. Roughly 800,000 to a million trees have been planted in the mountains over the last 22 years, reclaiming the topsoil for farming and raising crops and livestock. Over 1,500 Haitians are involved in this long-term development project. The American NGO that supports the work of CODEP is Haiti Fund, Inc. A detailed description of the mission of CODEP can be found at www.haitifundinc.org. Members of the congregation serve on the guiding boards of this program which is a non-denominational, faith-based mission. Read More >
