Hands On Haiti

Partners like you are helping children and families hit hardest by the 2010 Haiti earthquake rebuild their lives. These children were injured in the quake, and without your help, they did not have access to the type of care they needed to survive and properly recover. By sponsoring one of these children, you are providing them and their families with opportunities for a bright future through education, medical care, food, and basic resources that improve their everyday life.

Program Description: 
After a devastating earthquake hit Haiti in January 2010, partners like you responded by caring for a group of children and families who were most affected by the disaster. Through this Family Care Program, sponsors ensured these children received thorough medical care to fully recover from their injuries after the quake. Other generous partners also provided these children with nutritious food and funding for education, and gave their families financial assistance through micro-loans so they could begin to support themselves again. Prior to the earthquake, families in Haiti lived in some of the poorest conditions in the Western Hemisphere. These conditions are even worse now, after the earthquake. In order to recover, rebuild, and have hope for the future, the children of Haiti must be equipped to become leaders capable of creating positive change in their nation. By partnering with sponsors like you, we seek to provide the children of Haiti with the resources and care they need to become well-rounded individuals. This includes paying school fees and medical bills, leading Bible studies, and providing school supplies and food. By equipping these children and their caregivers with tools for success, they will be able to overcome the obstacles that lay before them. Our hope is that these children will grow up to create positive change in their communities and ultimately their nation.
