Our Projects in Haiti
On January 12, 2010 a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti imposing enormous misery to its people, but, especially to the children. Our goals are to see that the children under our care are safe and secure. We strive to make sure they have the supplies they need to be comfortable and we work with our project managers to ensure that the children have the supplies and resources needed to continue their education.
It is estimated it will take 10 years to bring Haiti back to the stage it was in prior to the earthquake. We have a lot of work ahead of us but with your continual support we can create sustainable communities for children and their families.
