In the midst of spiral gang violence, food/fuel/water shortages, and a cholera outbreak, the sitation has never been more dire.
Haiti is sending out an S.O.S. to the world, and we at Healing Haiti are responding.
Healing Haiti's Response:
What is the need?
Throughout 2022, the cost of living in Haiti has risen exponentially including(1):
The average Haiti makes just over $3/day(2), which means even a small fluxuation in the cost of goods/services in Haiti can quickly lead to malnutrition and medical emergencies. At Healing Haiti, we remain committed to serving the people of Haiti. In order to do so, we need your help in three key areas:
Meeting Budget: Spiraling inflation in Haiti combined with a downturn in U.S. supporter giving has created a $50,000 budget shortfall. We desperately need to make this up so that we can retain our vital Haitian staff.
Building For Maximum Impact: We are creating a fund designed to provide large-scale, Christ-centered aid the moment Cite Soleil reopens. our friends in Cite Soleil are especially desperate for help, and we are uniquely positioned to respond.
Investing In Haiti: We remain committed to leveraging our deep relationships in Haiti in order to provide sustainable and locally sourced food/water support. It's vital to continue investing in the Haitian economy.
During this year's Give To The Max, we're hoping to make-up our budget shortfall. Additionally, we'll be providing sharing exciting news related to matching gifts we've secured, which will allow your donations to accomplish even more.
Please plan to give generously, and please comtinue to pray for Haiti.
