Teams

Having faced several recent natural disasters, the Free Methodist Church in Haiti has a number of construction projects that could use a team’s assistance. The Haiti Team asks that construction teams raise funds for project costs in addition to the expense of food and lodging for the trip. This money is used to purchase materials and hire local workers to work alongside the team.
