Institution Mixte Des Apôtres

Out of necessity...

In the heart of the most dangerous and impoverished city in the Western Hemisphere, La Reference in City Soleil, Haiti 
 …One Woman, One Pastor, One dream.... together came a two room school called Institution Mixte Union Des Apotres

Through their endless effort and dedication...volunteers came and built buildings, providing the most basic of necessities that many take for granted….. water, power, and  clothing, 

Most of the 300 children who attend the school are malnourished.  Up until now they have been receiving one meal a week...Not enough to fuel their growing bodies and minds. 

The phrase “food for thought” takes on a whole new meaning.

The area is generally regarded as one of the poorest and most dangerous areas of the Western Hemisphere and it is one of the biggest slums in the Northern Hemisphere.
