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 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.

Take an inside look at our recent triumphs and continuing efforts on our YouTube page.

Our 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

        Because of ongoing political violence in Haiti, we are no longer able to send teams to work at St Vincent’s. However, WTHP continues to support the medical clinic and is supporting the salaries of a physical
        therapist and a medical doctor to visit the children regularly, as well as paying for medicines and vitamins.
