Thank you very much for visiting.
For those who may not know Evens' story, he grew up in the poor community of La Victoire, Haiti in a Christian family. He saw how his family & neighbors couldn’t eat...sometimes for days. Imagine that hunger! In an effort to survive, they had to do whatever it took, even if it meant that their children couldn’t go to school. Growing up in that environment, Evens prayed to God and asked God to use him in any way He wanted.
People hear that Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Perhaps you have never gone down there to volunteer or to see the difficult life of the Haitian people. Many people ask how these people live in conditions where it is a struggle to find water to drink or food to eat. But this is their reality!
Many people think the Haitian solution is that someone needs to take care of these people, someone needs to give them food each day, give clothes and money. That is not an ideal solution.
What these people need is to first put their trust and hope in God. Secondly, they need a place to work so they can have a job and support their family. Finally, they need an education. The Haitian people are not lazy; they love to work and to take care of their families. The problem is that 75% of professionals in this country live without a job, then they leave the country. After the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010, the condition of poverty grew.
Evens & Karina have dedicated their lives to serve the community of La Victoire by founding Sustainable Action International (SAI), a 501(c)(3) organization. SAI's mission is to work alongside the people of Haiti to provide for basic needs, support economic development, and cultivate discipleship to create a sustainable future.
Please donate to SAI to help us erradicate hunger, educate children, save lives & bring hope.
Thank you for your support.
