About Us

Founding

Brenda and Michael Cooper have been going to Haiti since 2000 as mission trip members and as mission team leaders. Then in 2005, they decided to create the Haitihelpers organization to give everyone who is interested the opportunity to help the many who are in need in Haiti. Helping Haitian communities over the years grew to become not only a permanent part of their lives, but also the lives of all the members of Haitihelpers.

Operation                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Since 2005, Haitihelpers has functioned to bring teams to Haiti for short-term mission trips. These trips normally last a week. We do mobile medical/ health clinics, evangelism, Bible study programs, children's VBS programs, bring garden seeds, conduct gardening seminars, health education, roof projects, feeding programs and more.

Currently, Michael and Brenda are focusing on bringing evangelism programs, Bible study courses, and Bibles to area churches and schools throughout the country.

Haitihelpers has been established as a federal 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the U.S., is incorporated as a non-profit in the state of Georgia, and has official non-profit status in Haiti.

UPCOMING TRIPS

We will be going back to Haiti in May. We were just there for 2 weeks and had a great trip. We had meetings with the people making brooms. This is a small, limited industry already established in Bas Pinal. It is a broom industry that has been going on for over 70 years. It just needs a boost to get it to the next level. The orphange is closed and the families of all the children that were in it are all involved in broom making. We met with 30 people from this village and found out how we can help them grow their business, increase their income,   And we are going to initiate help them on this trip. There are four things we are going to do:

1. Purchase more donkeys and horses so they don't have to carry the finished brooms on their heads to market.

2. Obtain seed so they can grow the plants used for broom making locally and not have to walk 10 hours or take a 3 day round-trip to get their plant material as they do now.

I3. Purchase a Diahatsu truck to help them carry more plant material home for making the brooms while we are waiting for the local plants to grow. 

4. Find funding for micro loans.
