West Tennessee Haiti Partnership

The Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee


Since 2005, the West Tennessee Haiti Partnership (WTHP) has worked in Haiti, first at St. Paul’s School in Montrouis.  Since 2008, we have devoted our efforts to support St. Vincent’s Center for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince. We take medical teams of doctors, nurses, dentists, optometrists, foot surgeons, and physical therapists to operate clinics at the school.  We raise money to buy medicines and vitamins for the children.  Our funds also go to help buy food and clean water at various times, depending on the local situation in Haiti.  We are an agency of the Diocese of West Tennessee, which is a 501(c) 3 organization.

Visit the West Tennessee Haiti Partnership blog for the latest information from our dedicated volunteers.

Our four ways of companionship:

  • Education
    Support the overall educational needs of St. Vincent’s Center for Handicapped Children Port-au-Prince and possibly other places of learning by providing academic supplies, scholarships, assistance with special renovation projects and more.
  • Food
    Participate in efforts to provide balanced and quality food for less-fed children and adults.
  • Healthcare
    Spend time at St. Vincent’s Center for Handicapped Children to provide primary medical care on an annual basis. Support surgical and physical therapy teams to travel to St Vincent’s and perform limb correcting surgeries on the handicapped children there.
  • Water
    Partner with other organizations to develop self-sustaining water systems at designated areas in consultation with the Diocese of Haiti.
