At LESPWA International, our mission is to bring hope and healing to the people of Haiti, and throughout the world. We do this by ministering to the spiritual, physical, and educational needs of the people we encounter in all walks of life.

Local groups direct us to villages with dire nutritional needs. We deliver rice, beans and the love of Jesus.

"Dirt Cookies" are a real staple food - made from dried yellow dirt, salt and vegetable shortening, many Haitians resort to these as a remedy for hunger pains. At about 5 cents apiece, the cookies are a bargain compared to real food, but cause malnutrition if heavily relied upon as a staple diet.









If any rice spills, the people will spend time picking each grain up out of the dirt.
