In 2018, the OP Haiti Mission discovered that five families in the Port-au-Prince congregation continued to suffer from difficult housing situations in the aftermath of the earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010.  Each family had property, but the shelter on the property was either unsafe, insecure, or unsuitable to their needs. The CDM provided $28,000 of the remaining Haiti Earthquake Relief funds for use in building a home for each of these families. Rev. Octavius Delfils engaged a local engineer and company to build the homes. The work was completed in two months. The OP Haiti Mission gives thanks for this opportunity to minister mercy to these saints in this way.
