MAP partners with US churches to bring food, school supplies, clothes, solar lights, and backpacks to Haiti where they are distributed by local church leaders to families and children in their congregations. MAP also supports self-sufficiency projects like goats and
HISTORY OF MAP
MAP began in 1991 when Wyburn Osborn began working with Haitians at the church he was pastoring in Miami. Soon, he was helping to transport people and supplies for missions and churches across Haiti.
Later, Wyburn was asked to take over the work of Hollins Duhon, an American missionary who started churches across Haiti. Hollins began to send young men to Bible College. After they graduated, he helped them organize into a group called Dessalines Christian Development (DCD) that mentors and encourages preachers as they establish churches throughout Haiti.
MAP has continued to follow the vision of changing Haiti by preparing young men for ministry. Over the years MAP has sent many dozens of young Christians to Bible college and supports many more as they serve in the field.
