Let us Honor & Remember!

Remembering and Honoring the Lives Lost on 9/11













Dear Beloved Supporters,


As we gather today, our hearts are heavy with a profound sense of grief and remembrance. September 11, 2001, is a date etched in the collective memory of humanity, a day when the world changed forever. On behalf of Christian Mission South Haiti, we want to take this moment to remember and honor the lives lost on that fateful day, as well as express our deepest gratitude to all of you, our cherished supporters, who have stood by us in our mission to bring hope, healing, and love to those in need.

Twenty-two years have passed since the tragic events of 9/11 unfolded, but the wounds inflicted on our nation's soul are still very much a part of our shared history. On this day, we pause not only to remember the fallen, but also to reflect on the strength, resilience, and unity that emerged from the ashes of that devastating day. In a world marred by violence and division, it is our mission at Christian Mission South Haiti to be a beacon of hope and love, inspired by the selflessness and courage exhibited by so many on 9/11.

It was a day when heroes emerged from all walks of life - firefighters, police officers, first responders, and ordinary citizens who risked everything to save lives. Their unwavering commitment to the greater good, their sacrifice, and their love for humanity serve as an enduring reminder of the profound impact that a single act of kindness can have in the face of adversity.

In the spirit of unity and compassion, we have dedicated ourselves to serving the people of Haiti, a nation that has faced its share of trials and tribulations. Through your generous support, Christian Mission South Haiti has been able to make a meaningful difference in the lives of countless Haitians, providing them with access to education, healthcare, clean water, and, most importantly, hope.

Our work in Haiti is not just about material aid; it is about building a community based on love, respect, and dignity. We are committed to helping Haitians rebuild their lives, just as our nation came together to rebuild in the aftermath of 9/11.

As we remember those who perished on that tragic day, let us also remember the importance of unity and compassion in our own lives. Let us take inspiration from the heroes of 9/11 and strive to make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time. Together, we can be a beacon of hope and healing, not just for Haiti, but for all those in need.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of you, our incredible supporters. Without your unwavering dedication and generosity, none of our work in Haiti would be possible. Your contributions, whether big or small, have a profound impact on the lives of the people we serve. You are the true heroes behind our mission, and we are eternally grateful for your continued support.

As we commemorate the lives lost on 9/11, let us also celebrate the power of love, compassion, and unity. Let us continue to stand together, hand in hand, as we work towards a brighter and more hopeful future for all.

In closing, we want to leave you with a quote from Martin Luther King Jr.: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." Together, as a community driven by love and compassion, we can drive out darkness and hate from the lives of those we serve.

With heartfelt gratitude and unwavering hope,




Jean Alix Lusma Field Director


Christian Mission South Haiti
