The Haitian people have endured human and natural catastrophe with indominatable spirit. Since 2012 the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and the College of Social Justice has brought more than 25 groups of volunteers to Haiti to learn about just recovery models, after the 2010 earthquake, and to support projects initiated by local communities.
Ruth Hendry, an active member of UUCDC, went to Haiti in January 2016 with the members of WellSprings Congregation as a part of the CSJ Haiti Beyond Recovery program. Mike Carpenter and Nuala Denham, members of Mainline Unitarian Church for 40 years, were the group leaders for this their 4th trip to the Central Plateau. Through music, poetry, pictures, and personal reflections, they will share their experiences of working with Haitians as they make a new “…road for humanity.”
