“We want to bring hope
to people in desperate need”

Why is Three Strands involved in Haiti?

Haiti is among the poorest countries in the world.

Because of their circumstances, they are in great need of medical assistance.

Local health care is almost non-existent. Medications and procedures are expensive. Most Haitians cannot afford sufficient food for a day, let alone medication or health care.

A little goes a long way in Haiti.

How we started there

Three Strands unofficially began work in Haiti after the earthquake in 2010. Mike Taylor (one of our founders) took a short-term team for relief work. On that trip, Mike met a young man named Elvinor Thintiot, who was in medical school and had a heart to care for his people. Mike and Dr. Thintiot (Dr. T) joined forces, and a mission was established.

At the beginning of this collaboration, Three Strands partnered with a church planting organization called Caribbean Vision Ministries to host medical teams which serve the community in Cap Haitien.

From Vision to Reality

What began as relief work quickly became a vision of continued local health care. Fast forward several years. Dr. T is our medical director. Three Strands has a clinic with multiple staff members working full time serving and treating the people of Cap Haitien. This could only be accomplished through prayer, donations and the work of many people.  We continue to send short term teams to support and encourage our staff who work hard to reach their people for Jesus through medicine.

Looking ahead

We are striving to make the Three Strands’ operation in Haiti self-sustaining. Our first endeavor toward sustainability is our guesthouse, which we rent to like-minded mission organizations. Our goal is to offer dental, inpatient, maternity, and surgical services in the future. To that end, we have begun Phase 1 of our Haiti Medical Center Campaign. Click the button below to learn more!
