Age Requirements

12 and under with a parent, 15 and over without. For all ages, keep in mind Haiti’s climate is hot and humid. Our location is built on a mountainside, so steep hiking may be required.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to bring a team to Haiti?

Lifesong–MBO makes our guests’ health and safety a top priority—safety is always our primary consideration. Because of our missionaries’ experience and knowledge of Haiti and its surroundings, all precautions and details have been put in place for your safety and health.  Our long-term involvement within the community has developed many close relationships with the locals. The community is familiar with Lifesong, and we’ve worked hard to earn their trust and respect. We have employed any drivers that will be driving you and hired local men from the community to serve as security. Our property is completely fenced with 24-hour security.

Our guest house and restaurant were built with you in mind. We take great care in training our kitchen staff to prepare safe and healthy meals. As much clean water as you need is supplied.

On the first night of the trip, our staff will host an orientation meeting that will help you be safe and healthy for the duration of your trip. Please feel free to contact us if you have more questions.

What vaccinations are needed?
