Dearest friends and supporters - we will be helping in the following way due to your extreme generosity and the opening of your hearts -

Purchasing extra food and water for our children,
Providing two community feeding programs in Chantal and Ducis and
Assisting families of community children and staff to purchase food.

More Info

We are so grateful to report that all our children and staff members are safe after the 7.2 magnitude earthquake which struck Haiti on August 14th. 

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has stated that “The most urgent humanitarian needs are expected to be linked to the provision of medical assistance and water, sanitation and hygiene."

We are raising money to provide the below for the RFA children as well as neighborhood children who were all impacted by the devastation:

  • Food 

  • Water

  • Medical Supplies

We are also raising money to begin rebuilding:

  • The school our older children attend in Les Cayes, which lost its 3rd floor (the largest school there)

  • Our boulanger in Ducis is crumbled and shattered

  • Our church / school in Ducis, which lost its roof

Thank you all so much! I have spoke with our contact who will be going to Haiti and we will be purchasing extra food for our children, as well as assisting in the community with plans to provide food to families for one week. It seems small but is so large for every one of these families that are struggling. Our neighbors in Ducis and Chantal are struggling under enormous pressure at this time - we will be sending hope and food - every bit of this fundraiser is so impactful - thank you again.
