Floris UMC began sending short-term mission volunteers to participate in Haiti rebuilding efforts after the devastating earthquake of 2010. Over a three-year recovery period, six different Floris United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) teams traveled to various parts of Haiti to assist in reconstruction projects identified by the Methodist Church of Haiti (EMH). As rebuilding and disaster relief ended, Floris UMC aligned with the Haiti Partnership to build relationships and work collaboratively with Haitian partners for sustained community development. 

Volunteers age 18 and older are invited to be a part of the next scheduled team traveling to Leon, Haiti, October 18-27, 2018. Participants will work alongside resident Haitians to construct cement columns and walls of the village community center destroyed by Hurricane Matthew. The estimated individual cost per team member is $1,400.
