Hope to Haiti
Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. Despite living in material poverty, the people of Haiti have an enormous amount of endurance, hope and dignity, but they need help in this fight against extreme poverty.
The Legacy of Rev. R. Scott Bonnell. On Sunday April 11, 2021 Scott Bonnell checked himself into the Capital Regional Urgent Care facility on N. Monroe Street in Tallahassee, FL suffering from chest pains and was quickly diagnosed as having a heart attack. Scott made posts on his facebook page over that weekend that he was not feeling well. Thursday April 15, 2021, R. Scott Bonnell went to be with the Lord he spent many years serving.
In April upon hearing the news of Scotts tragic passing, efforts were led by George Avant (George was board member, and Scott kept his office in a complimentary office in George’s office building) to assemble a working board of directors to continue the ministry. Scott ran the ministry in a lean and efficient manner and the existing board members were mostly symbolic. Many of the supporters that had been a part of the ministry from early on joined the new board and we are happy to report that the ministry will continue. Currently the board has committed to support in country Director of Operations Yvesener Sylla to continue the core ministry. H2H will continue to support the feeding program of approximately 1500 children per day. H2H will continue to support 3 orphanages totaling 90 children.
Scott began his ministry career with North Florida Baptist after starting his career with Sing Oil Company. In 2006 Scott joined the board of Most High Ministries and in 2007 Scott founded Hope to Haiti. Many of our current board members remember early in the ministry, Scott describing how kids were making up and eating mud wafers because they were desperate to find something to eat. The ministry began to grow in Haiti as Scott worked tirelessly to make people aware of the conditions and how they could help. H2H began orphanages for abandoned children and began a feeding program that now feeds over 1500 children per day. After the earthquake in 2010, Sylla (the in country Director of Operations) put together a team to assist actor Sean Penn with relief efforts that Sean brought to the country.
Your support of H2H “may not change the whole world, but is changing the world” for each child the ministry touches. Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, and your continued support honors the vision and legacy of Scott Bonnell as the ministry of H2H continues to provide “Hope” to the children and people of Haiti.
