WHAT WE DO
LiveBeyond is a faith-based, humanitarian organization focused on transforming an oppressed community in Thomazeau, Haiti, by providing good health and hope for the future.
Our innovative programs were established to restore and heal the Thomazeau community. Learn more about our work in the following areas.
Haiti lacks a health care infrastructure, and in remote areas like Thomazeau, medical care resources are very limited. LiveBeyond provides people in the region with access to health care check-ups and treatments, and is currently building a hospital complex to offer life-saving procedures, treatments, and services.
Giving birth in Haiti is extremely dangerous due to a lack of facilities and skilled medical professionals. We work with pregnant mothers to provide access to health care, maternal and infant education, and a community OB/GYN hospital.
KÈ POU TIMOUN
The goal of our Kè Pou Timoun program is to transform children's lives and develop a generation of strong, Christian leaders in Haiti. The children in the program are provided with daily meals, spiritual and leadership training, education, and livelihood opportunities in a Christ-centered environment.
People with disabilities are often treated as outcasts in Haiti. Our At-Risk program exists to care for the “forgotten ones.” We seek out the vulnerable and provide for their needs, including medical care, meals, physical therapy, education and quality time to show them Jesus Christ’s abounding love for them.
Many children in Haiti lost their family in the 2010 earthquake, while others were abandoned because they simply could not be provided for. We partner with Children of Hope Orphanage to support 35+ children.
Eighty percent of Haitians live on less than two dollars per day. We educate and guide locals on agriculture and economic activities to stimulate the local economy and improve their quality of life.
Education is an integral piece of ending the cycle of poverty in Thomazeau. Many people never have the opportunity to attend school and are often illiterate. We offer a variety of learning opportunities for our Haitian staff and other people in the community.
We believe God has equipped us to share the Gospel and develop faithful believers in Jesus Christ, so we established the LiveBeyond church in 2015. Through the Spirit of God, gospel-centered community, and discipleship, we want to see people in Thomazeau be transformed by God's love and living in His abundant life.
