LOAF Ministries was incorporated by Nathan and Katye Clark. Kylee Randle acts as our agent here in the US, and we have also formed a board of trustees to guide us in this endeavor. We attend Woodland Heights Christian Church in Crawfordsville, IN, though our ministry is unaffiliated.
LOAF Ministries is currently seeking an office location in downtown Les Cayes, in the Southwest region of Haiti. The population of Les Cayes (commonly called just “Cayes”) is estimated at over 125,000 since the earthquake, in a town half the size of Crawfordsville* or less. In other words, Cayes has roughly 15 times the number of people per square mile as Crawfordsville. While the economy is "bad" here, residents of Cayes grapple with something like a 60% unemployment* rate. Most live in concrete houses or metal shanties, which require yearly lump-sum rent payments. Simply put, life can be very hard in Haiti.
