The purpose of Haiti Lifeline Ministries is to empower, equip, and encourage the work of Christ in Haiti. Since 1999, we have been following the Lord’s call to serve at the orphanage at Centre Children International Lifeline d’Haiti. The past two years have seen an explosion in interest in the ministry and what God is doing at the compound in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. Because of this interest and God's guiding grace, Haiti Lifeline Ministries has expanded our ministry beyond the walls of the compound into surrounding villages and north into Pignon. We wait with eager anticipation to see how He will lead in the future and are thankful for the opportunity to help enhance the lives of the orphanage children as well as those in the surrounding areas.
Haiti Lifeline Ministries partnered with Nicole Dieudonne & Centre Children International over fifteen years ago. This partnership has been the foundation for all of the other branches of our ministry. Because of our love for the people of Haiti and God's providence, we have expanded the work in Haiti outside the walls of Centre Children.
For many years, Haiti Lifeline has struggled to continue providing education, medical care, and life experience to the children aging out of the Lifeline orphanage. This dream has finally come to fruition in The Oasis Project.
Our relationship with Nicole allowed us to transition into assisting her husband, Daniel, a pastor and overseer for many Haitian churches. Now, we are working alongside local pastors across Haiti through One Body.
Nicole Dieudonne is the founder and director of Centre Children International Lifeline d'Haiti located in Croix-des-Bouquets. Initially, she started feeding street children under a mango tree. Once she established the orphanage, Nicole began to take in children in need of a home. Since that time, the compound has grown from housing and feeding children to also include a community school, a guest house, a clean water well, and a community medical clinic.
The Oasis Project exists to further prepare and equip the youth that have aged out of Centre Children International Lifeline d'Haiti to contribute to the continued progress and growth of Haiti. We purpose to accomplish this by working with each youth and focusing on spiritual development, continued education along with vocational training, independent living skills, emotional wholeness, and personal accountability. The Oasis Project is the culmination of the work begun at Lifeline. It is the final step in the process of preparing these young men and women to participate in and contribute to the Haitian community, giving them both roots and wings to take with them into their futures.
One Body is a growing organization of believers in Haiti and America who recognize the value of partnership. While partnering overseas has many facets, One Body focuses on three key areas: Church Building, Relationships and Encouragement, and Investing. Through our partnership with Daniel Dieudonne who is a pastor and overseer of nearly 200 churches throughout Haiti, One Body has been able to reach outside the orphanage proper and further minister to churches and communities all over Haiti.
Several times a year, Haiti Lifeline Ministries sends groups of work teams to Haiti. All of the trips have a specific emphasis and purpose though regardless of the team focus, Haiti Lifeline's goal is to serve the people of Haiti. During the summer, groups are sent to put on programs specifically for the children at the Lifeline orphanage including Vacation Bible School and vocational camps. Twice a year, medical teams travel to the Lifeline Orphanage and operate a free clinic for the community of Croix-de-Bouquets as well as surrounding villages. Go HERE to click through photos from our recent medical teams. Throughout the year, we also travel to areas around Haiti for One Body church building teams.
