Haiti Foundation of Hope is excited to announce plans for implementing CHE (Community Health Evangelism), a community development program of LifeWind International.
In January, Haiti Foundation of Hope in partnership with Medical Teams International sent a team of four people to the area of Terre Blanche, Haiti, to complete a needs assessment. As a result, community leaders identified the top three health concerns as malnutrition, diarrhea and health for pregnant women. Haiti Foundation of Hope is now working toward implementing CHE to address these problems.
CHE uses a community’s willingness to take responsibility for solving problems by providing training and information. The program involves community volunteers, who receive training and help bring change in their community through relationships and teaching.
We’re excited about the possibilities of this community-based program and the hope it offers to people living in rural northern Haiti.
