Our Work in Haiti:

Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere and one of the primary countries that we work in, has thousands of the world's poorest children who face a lifetime of suffering and hardship.

Many receive no education, learn no skills, suffer from poor health and have very little food. HELPS International, with its local, international and Haitian partner, has started to see change happen.

Our Haitian Partner, Mission Haiti, located in Saintard, Arcahaie has been working in Haiti for over 30 years.

There has been a school program established throughout Haiti through which over 33,000 elementary and high school students are educated in our partner’s schools.

Three years ago, a college was built and is providing programs in nursing assistant, computers, lab tech and auto mechanics. Students come from as far as Port au Prince, which is a two hour Haitian bus ride. Mission Haiti also runs an orphanage with 70 children ranging from babies to teens.

A small hospital was built three years ago by Mission Haiti and its International Partners to help alleviate the needs of the people that were coming down from the mountains for medical attention. Medical clinics are provided within an eight hour radius of the hospital three to four times a month.

In 2008 HELPS started to develop a vocational training centre for young adults in Camp Perrin in the south department and a community outreach centre focusing on children and youth which will house a library and computer lab with children and youth programs.
