Romsey Baptist Church supports Compassion UK and a number of members sponsor children in various countries around the world. We have a special relationship with a Compassion project in Corail, Haiti which many of the RBC-sponsored children attend.
Our partnership with the Corail project began in 2011. Corail is in a mountainous area; the unemployment rate in Corail is 80% and the nearest medical facility is a 30 minute walk away. In November 2013, our then minister and two other members travelled halfway round the world to see first-hand the impact being made by Compassion in the village of Corail. Although 276 children there are sponsored in total by people all around the world, the delegation from RBC were the first ones ever to visit the project.
In the past we are raising money to help the Corail church with a building project to enable it to expand its education ministry.
