Christian Haitian Outreach celebrates founder

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

For almost 40 years, Eleanor Workman has devoted her life to helping the people of Haiti.

Since 1974, Workman has performed missionary work for children on the island.

Her work has earned her the nickname, "Mom."

Sunday, the organization "Mom" founded, Christian Haitian Outreach celebrated her contributions during a service at Paine College's Gilbert-Lambuth Memorial Chapel.

"It was wonderful," Workman said. "We've been looking forward to it."

Workman says she's most happy the people at the celebration are so involved with her work in Haiti.

"They care about the children in Haiti not having food, not having enough food," she says.

Workman recently turned 93, and has moved to Augusta after spending most of her time in Haiti and Miami.

The CHO is responsible for establishing orphanages, churches, medical facilities, and schools in Haiti, and Workman has trained over 200 people to become pastors.
