Our Story

The Haiti Task Force was founded in the historic Rhode Island Conference of the United Church of Christ 30 years ago when the late Rev. Dr. H. Daehler Hayes, Conference Minister at the time, partnered with the Rev. Jean Dorisca, the founder of the Mission Evangelique Baptiste Bethesda (MEBB) churches.  Numerous groups have traveled to Haiti since 1990 and the Task Force continues today more dedicated than ever to its Mission --Providing education, quality health care, orphan relief, spiritual support and community-based services for the people of Haiti.  We do this through student and school sponsorship's, financial support for a medical clinic, sustained friendship and joint advocacy for positive change. 

Over the years the Task Force has:

  • Built two multipurpose buildings to house schools and clinics;

  • Helped build two churches;

  • Built a nursery and bathroom for an orphanage;

  • Provided bunk beds, mattresses, and a generator for an orphanage;

  • Provided a solar system for an orphanage;

  • Sponsored individual children and schools that provide education to over 600 students;

  • Provided financial support to the clinic that serves between 400 and 700 patients a month;

  • Built wells in three communities bringing fresh water to over 1000 people in each community;

  • Brought a child to RI for brain surgery that could not be performed in Haiti;

  • Brought a young man to Massachusetts for bi-lateral knee replacement; and

  • Provided funding to improve the lives of the tiniest of Haiti’s needy – the orphans.

Through all of this we have fostered a strong fellowship that brings the people of Haiti together with their Rhode Island brothers and sisters in the truest meaning of loving one another.
