ABOUT THE CHURCH
Eglise Baptiste de la Fraternite, located in lower Delmas, is close to downtown Port-au-Prince. There is a school on the church property for kindergarten through 12th grade with more than 300 students. Roughly 75% of the children receive full scholarships. The church also holds a free medical clinic each week that is funded by the church body.
The neighborhoods surrounding the church are home to numerous orphans and vulnerable children who would greatly benefit from the HBC Program and outreach from the church. Bel Air, a large slum, is located close to the church, and faces the effects of poverty and unemployment.
Pastor Ramil Saint Claire
Pastor Saint Claire was saved at a church in Jacmel when he was a young boy. He came to Port-au-Prince in 1996 and served in another church. While at this church, he was baptized, taught Sunday School, and called by God to be a pastor. He attended theological school in 1967 for four years and was married in 1973. He and his wife have two sons and two daughters.
