Jesus commanded us to feed the hungry, provide drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked . . .
In response to the terrible and devastating earthquake in Haiti, we at The Worldwide Christian Center are escalating our Haiti Missions fund-raising efforts to a whole new level. Our missionary-liaison is doing everything possible to keep us informed of the needs of local Haitian church leaders so that their urgent needs can be identified and met, and recovery can begin.
Checks can be mailed to and donations of relief supplies can be dropped at the church.

About Our Ongoing Mission:
Community Workers for Christ, Inc. (CWC) was founded in 1979 as a non-profit organization whose principal focus is to meet the physical, educational, and spiritual needs of the Haitian people. CWC is recognized by the United States government as a 501c(3) entity. For over twenty years, The Worldwide Christian Center has sponsored CWC Missionary Evelyn Childs. Evelyn ministers in Haiti and serves as liaison between The Worldwide Christian Center and CWC.
In 1985 CWC constructed a combination church/school in the poor mountainous region of Barassa, Haiti, where previously there had been no church and no school. CWC built a reservoir nearby that provides water for the population of the area. Prior to the construction of CWC’s reservoir, locals walked three hours for a bucket of water. A home was built in the proximity of the church for the pastor and his family.
CWC sponsors individual families as well as orphanages throughout Haiti. At this time, concern is great and information is scarce about five CWC homes that were in the path of the earthquake.
In 2009 English classes were added to the educational program. These classes were taught by Roland Jules, a graduate of the Barassa Christian Education Center, who went on to earn degrees in English and theology. Though English classes were subsequently canceled due to lack of funding, Roland continues to bless the ministry. At this critical time, Roland is using his English skills as a translator between the Creole-speaking Haitian people and those who are arriving in Haiti to offer emergency assistance.
