West Tennessee Haiti Partnership
Church of the Holy Communion is committed to the life of the West Tennessee Haiti Partnership (WTHP). This ministry is the commitment of the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee to be in companion relationship with the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti in five ways: education, food, healthcare, learning and water. Our current, primary work is with the St. Vincent's Center for Handicapped Children Port-au-Prince. Through interfaith and ecumenical relationships, we strive to the work of God we have been given to do based on conversation with our friends in Haiti.
