Organizational Principles

Purpose & Mission Statement:

Our mission is to seek and save the lost by providing services to women in need. In Haiti, much like in the United States, many young women consider ending an unplanned pregnancy through abortion. This problem is more severe in Haiti, since having a baby out of wedlock eliminates most avenues of financial and social mobility. In Haiti, a young woman with a baby is unlikely to even finish high school, and in Haitian culture there is little or no family or social support for these women. LOAF Ministries works to help such women choose life for their babies in spite of all the surrounding difficulties that could seemingly be waved away by terminating a pregnancy. We provide these women a safe place to come by and talk about their lives and pregnancies, as well as nutrition and prenatal care throughout their pregnancies. In the fall of 2017, we intend to begin providing childcare so that our new mothers can successfully finish school and hold down a job. All the while, we at LOAF are showing the love of Christ and planting the seeds of His gospel in this neglected segment of the population in Haiti.

Description:

Our specific ministry is to serve young, single mothers in Haiti during and after pregnancy. We do this directly by funding the alleviation of their basic human needs, such as nutritious food and hospital prenatal care, and by enabling them to complete a high school education. While comparable ministries exist in the united states, our ministry is certainly unique to this area of Haiti, and our programming necessarily takes a different form for this unique culture.
