In 1972, Friends for Missions, Inc. was able to open the Faith Nutrition Center in Bourg Champagne, Haiti. At that time the people in that area were starving because of malnutrition. In 1990, Sister Mary Sawyer-Goodwin, approached her friend and “Big Brother” as she referred to him, Rev. Dr. Nathaniel Tyler-Llyod. Dr. Tyler-Lloyd was then the pastor of Trinity Baptist Church, Bronx, NY. Sister Mary invited him to go to Haiti with her. Upon their return Dr. Tyler-Llyod presented what he saw to his congregation. It was determined that they had a Christian obligation to help the people of Haiti that were literally starving to death. As a result, the facility was renamed the “Trinity Baptist Centre De Nutrition” in honor of its major sponsor, Trinity Baptist Church. That faithful congregation, under the leadership of Dr. Nathaniel’s daughter, Dr. Naomi Tyler-Llyod, provides principal funding for food and staff salaries.
Since its inception, malnutrition has been totally wiped out in that area of Haiti. Over the last 50 years, more than one million dollars has been donated, and over 200,000 children have been fed! We are so grateful to God for the Saints at Trinity Baptist Church, their pastor, Rev. Dr. Naomi, and her staff!
There is still a need to provide underprivileged children with clean water and nutritious meals. If you would like to donate to our feeding program, kindly Donate Now. All donations received for The Trinity Baptist Nutrition Center will go directly to Haiti for that purpose.
