The past few years have been very difficult for people all over the world. For Haiti the problems far exceeded the global pandemic. It has been a time of political instability, an earthquake, gang violence, daily kidnappings, diesel shortage and lack of food.  When we asked our local leaders what the greatest need was their reply was food assistance and job creation.

We shifted our focus in 2021 and prioritized feeding the elderly and vulnerable in the community as well as strengthening an existing agricultural project in the mountains that will provide jobs, clean water and fresh produce.

While the island of La Gonâve is substantially safer than Port-au-Prince, the majority of vendors rely on products coming from the mainland. Due to lack of safe passage between the mainland and the island, it is imperative that we find or create ways to become sustainable without involving unsafe travel.

There are so many opportunities we have to support our team in Haiti as they meet the needs of the most vulnerable in their community.
