|Help Haiti Now
is a non-profit
501c3 organization established in 2005 to support education
and provide basic necessities in remote areas of Haiti.
When the earthquake devastated Port Au Prince on Jan. 12, 2010,
Help Haiti Now was organized with a Haitian team prepared to
respond. Now, one year later, we are still committed to several
The need for shelter for children became an immediate priority.
Help Haiti Now rented a large house in Feb. 2010 near Montrouis,
Haiti - which is now home for 16 children and provides part-time
work for six
adults. Your donations have assisted in providing a
stable environment for these homeless children. They are grateful
to have beds and shelter, food twice or more daily, clean
water, and most of all tuition, uniforms and books for school.
Working with other relief groups, Help Haiti Now relocated
over 300 people from Port Au Prince to Montrouis after the
earthquake. Initially, two schools were made into emergency
shelters. Now these families, mostly women and children, are
living in a tent camp
on the beach in Montrouis. They have no place else to go and
are dependent on Help Haiti Now for money to buy food and
emergency medical care. We look to our donors with
gratitude so that support for these refugees continues.
