For 5 years, Eden Westside has partnered with Global Christian Mission Outreach to aid the humanitarian efforts in Haiti. These efforts helped in the construction of a Hospital, taking medical trips for aiding in the health of the communities, conducted numerous vacation Bible schools for the children and, most importantly, to share the love of Jesus across the waters to Haiti.

10 men took 10 days away from their daily lives to serve God in a strange land. Their original goal was to roof a church that hurricane Matthew had destroyed in Les Cayes in early October of 2016.  The Lord blessed their efforts and commitment allowing them to complete that task ahead of schedule.

As you know, mosquitos carrying malaria and are a real problem. With this extra time, they added screens to the doors and windows for the school and a much needed roof for the kitchen.  Since the hurricane, the children had to leave school at noon due to the inability to serve meals.
