Piatre Community Update: Masks & More

During this time in history, the world is experiencing opportunities to innovate how we serve and love one another. Thanks to the generosity of our partners and the dedication of Piatre’s Leadership Council, and the 410 Bridge staff, there is an abundance of good work being done in Piatre to care for each community member. In addition, the community members of Piatre are working diligently to care for people in their community and communities all across Haiti!

The community of Piatre has a sewing center that employs a few people across the community. When awareness of the pandemic spread across the world, people began recognizing the benefits of wearing masks. The Piatre sewing center quickly stepped up and began making masks that could be distributed within their community and surrounding communities as well. The work being done at the Piatre sewing center is helping to improve the health of many individuals. In addition, the increase in work being done is helping to sustain and develop the economy in Piatre.

Farmers have also been hard at work throughout the community. In the early stages of the pandemic, a seed distribution took place. These seeds have been planted by farmers throughout the community. We are praying the rains come and the harvest is plentiful.

Seeds for Haiti communities

Please continue to pray for Piatre in these specific ways:

  • For the spiritual, emotional, and physical health of the community
  • For the Leadership Council and churches as they guide their communities through this time
  • For rain, in just the right amount, during the planting season to yield crops that will help feed families in the community

One Day At Church

One day at church I felt a calling or a nudge that God wanted me to serve in a different way. I looked through my church’s opportunities and as soon as I saw Kenya I felt a wash of joy flood over me. I applied that day and was overjoyed to hear shortly back that I had been accepted to go. Our church gave us the book “If You Really Want To Help” and from there I fell in love with what 410 was doing for the people of Kenya, especially after reading the story of Chris in Kahuria.

Learnings From Kiu, Kenya

Our partnership with Kiu community started way back in 2009 making it one of the first communities to partner with the 410 Bridge since its inception in Kenya in 2006. 

At the 410 Bridge, we work through the community leaders who ensure continuity of the community’s development even after graduation. During our partnership journey, we walk alongside indigenous community leaders and church leaders as they mobilize and unify the community to participate in their own development – shifting their perspectives and owning the solutions.
