Food For The Poor is building a community for displaced families in Haiti who have fled from the Dominican Republic.
In this humanitarian crisis, caused by the expulsion of generations of Haitians from the Dominican Republic, over 30,000 people have fled to Haiti and are seeking refuge at camps along the border.
Food For The Poor is responding to this urgent need through the development of a sustainable village for displaced families in Riviere de l'Artibonite.
Children need a safe, protective environment and an opportunity to play and go to school. Adults need employment options. Families need safe homes, clean water and access to health care.
This innovative and multi-faceted project will be working with 140 displaced families to create a community from the ground up – made up of 140 houses, community centre, health clinic, communal water supply, community market, school and income-generating projects.
The community will be located on 80 acres of undeveloped land in Petite Riviere de l'Artibonite that was donated to Food For The Poor by the Haitian government.
Give today and help us build a community.
