In and around Haiti are small villages called Bateys (Ba-tee). Due to their remote locations, these nearly 50 villages have simply been numbered as a way to keep track of them as many of them are cut off from the main land of Haiti. These Bateys are usually tiny in size with around 100 people.
Within a short distance from the Chadasha campus is one of these Haitian villages, Batey 41, aka Po-Plume, that we have reached out to support & assist through the following ways:
- providing 100 gallons of clean drinking water each week
- providing school supplies each year for their 1-room school
- providing general health care as needed from our health clinic’s general practitioner
- sponsoring a salary to the local pastor of that particular Batey.
