HUG partners with Feed the Hunger volunteers each year to pack and distribute thousands of packets of food, which contain grains, proteins, and vitamins. These are delivered to Christian children's homes, churches, and schools throughout Haiti. A donation of $1 a day feeds 15 children for a month.
Since 2004, when HUG's founder began caring for orphaned girls, 18-20 girls have lived in a home in a suburb of Port-au-Prince. These girls are clothed, fed, educated, and provided training regarding various trades so they can work when they become adults. Most importantly, they are taught the love of Jesus Christ. A HUG board, overseen by a Haitian pastor, provides guidance and assistance to the house mother and house sister. The home is 100 percent financially supported by HUG, therefore ongoing donations and individual sponsorships are life-sustaining for these girls.
Since the 2010 earthquake that destroyed thousands of homes and took thousands of lives, HUG has sent teams from the U.S. to work alongside Haitians to build or renovate structures: homes, churches, kitchens, schools, and even chicken coops. In 2016, teams were immediately deployed to help restore homes damaged by Hurricane Matthew. Current projects include a school building, family dwellings, and a church. Financial donations are necessary to purchase building supplies and to employ Haitian laborers.
Haitian Pastor Maxeau Antoine, with the assistance of HUG, trains and equips pastors and lay people for service in the Lord's work and provides materials and Bibles to members of various churches. Women's and Family Conferences are also hosted annually. In a country that has an intertwined religion of Catholicism and Voodoo, Protestantism has been on the rise in the last 10-20 years. Educating people about the Gospel and the saving grace of Jesus Christ is the life’s work of Pastor Maxeau and Christian pastors across the country.
HUG and Pastor Maxeau partner to provide free vision clinics to hundreds of Haitians in need of a free gift of physical and spiritual sight.
