Wall’s International Guest House*

On September 11, 1984, Jack and Anne Wall of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada sold most of their possessions and moved to Port au Prince, Haiti. They were sixty years old. Their mission was to work with the poorest of the poor in rural communities: enabling them to achieve a level of productivity and economic activity to provide for themselves and their families. Jack carried with him the charter carved in 1980 with the vision and mission of the Foundation for International Development Assistance (FIDA). Anne preoccupied herself with how to support themselves and the mission.


Thus, was established Wall’s International Guest House.


Their home became the doorway to Haiti for many: tourists, visitors, doctors, nurses, teachers, pastors, adoptive parents, mission teams, and church groups. There were many difficult years, but Anne persevered. She often prayed for God to send her “just a few guests” so that she could make ends meet. God did and Wall’s International Guest House flourished. Anne turned the proceeds of her hard-earned work to support the struggling cooperatives. Through good years and lean years, she enabled thousands of Haitians and their families to realize a sustainable future. We are grateful for the countless visitors who sought out Wall’s International Guest House as their place to stay while in Haiti. Despite difficult times when guests can be few and far between, each visit continues to be an answer to prayer and a blessing for many.
