Hens for Haiti
Hens for Haiti is an exciting new mission initiative of the Lake Lotawana Community United Methodist Church. We are partnering with the Methodist Church in Mellier, Haiti to help build a new agribusiness, a sustainable chicken farm.
Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. As a result, hunger and malnutrition are two of Haiti's largest ongoing problems. The eggs from this project will help relieve this problem for the families of Mellier. Just one egg provides six grams of protein, and this chicken farm will produce up to 784 eggs every day! In addition, this project will provide several highly needed jobs for people in the community.
The congregation of the Methodist Church in Mellier, working with an agricultural specialist, has developed a comprehensive plan and budget for this new entrepreneurial endeavor. The church is donating the land for the project and the construction labor needed to build the hen laying facilities. We, the Lake Lotawana Community United Methodist Church, have raised over $50,000 to fund the construction and startup of this business. We would like to extend our appreciation to all who have supported this fundraising effort. We ask you to please continue to hold the community of Mellier and the Methodist Church in your prayers as this enterprise begins and grows.
