The Village of Janou

The mountain village of Janou was nearly wiped out in Hurricane Matthew in Oct. of 2016.  After Monett Community Church “adopted” Janou in Feb. of 2017, JUST MERCY has been able to use the funds the church raised to reroof six houses and repair two others!  More roofs and house repairs are in the works.

This lady is so happy to have a new roof on her home!

We currently are seeking to raise funds to rebuild the church which we intend to also use as a school.  Children from the village who want to go to school currently have to hike down the mountain for three hours and then hike back up again that afternoon!  Not all children of the village can afford to go so if you can, please  donate so that we can rebuild the church/school and hire the teachers needed to teach.

We Need To Build a Building for the Chapelle School!

The Chapelle school in the mountains of Pays-Pourri has started a high school class, the first of its kind in this area of the mountains.  It keeps the children from having to leave home and move to town to continue their education. As all classes are in this one crowded building, funds are needed to build some free standing classrooms.

  • 350 children meet in this stick and tarp structure.  We have been blessed with another organization putting in a cistern for the school so they have water to cook the school lunches.  A more permanent structure is needed.
  • More Benches are needed for the Chapelle school.
