GLOBAL IMPACT

Haiti Missions & Partnerships

In January 2010 a 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti causing widespread devastation over the entire country. The death toll was beyond staggering with estimates of over 300,000 killed. The call for help was heard and in Quincy, Illinois and a mission team was formed.
Founders Mark and Chris Lawrence took an ordinary 2x4 and asked friends and family to simply buy a 2x4 sign their names to it with a scripture or a message, and our organization was born. Initially 5 homes were built on that initial mission to Haiti.

 

BUILDING HOMES

With the initial signed 2x4's we have built 5 homes and to this day those signed 2x4's show the signatures and messages of blessings from our community and around. We continue to help build houses in Haiti however we purchase materials locally to support their economy.

GIFT OF WATER

We partnered with the organization Gift of Water. Our continued efforts to provide good health is through proper sanitation and clean drinking water. The Gift of Water program and the latrine program run parallel to help solve this global problem.

HOPE LATRINE

In August 2015 a cry for help came from Haiti in an effort to help solve the sanitation crisis. 2x4's for Hope responded by designing and producing the world's first composting, sustainable latrine built entirely by the Haitians.

HAITIAN EDUCATION

We look forward to continuing our work when we are able.
