The Evangelical Covenant Church of Canada (ECCC) is thrilled to share with you a bit more about the work being done with our partners in Haiti. The ECCC has committed both prayer and financial support to three primary projects. It’s our hope that you as individuals and churches would consider giving towards the projects below.
In addition to supporting these projects financially, we would also like to encourage you and your church to plan a visit. Trips continue to serve as opportunities for our Canadian people to grow in their faith as well as understand the unique challenges our sisters and brothers face everyday. It is our hope to make trips to Haiti simple and life transformational for both visitors and the people we serve.

Petite Anse Feeding Project
Petite Anse is an area in Cap Haitian known as a slum. It is difficult to describe other than to say it’s difficult to imagine living there. The ECCC in partnership with College Park Covenant Church and a team in Haiti provide a rice and beans meal twice a week for approximately 160 children.
