About Us

CHAP (Christian Haitian American Partnership) is a South Carolina Eleemosynary Corporation, formed in 2004, and granted tax exempt status by the IRS the same year, as a 501(c)3 entity. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for the people in Haiti. We have three primary areas of focus:

  1. Children's Nutrition. A program called "Lespwa
    Timoun" serves severely malnourished children

  2. Children's Education, A scholarship program
    provides support for four schools operated by the
    Episcopal Church. It permits 900 impoverished children
    to attend class. Construction of a new school in the
    mountain village of Crochu is well underway.

  3. Medical and Dental Care. We send teams of physicians, dentists, optometrists and volunteers with donated medications, to conduct medical/dental clinics in the countryside. We are centered in the Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina, but we receive support from all over the United States, and send teams to Haiti, not only from the Myrtle Beach area, but also from North Carolina, Arkansas, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Arizona, and Washington State.
