You have to be there to see how it is
Five years ago, Haiti was a country in ruin after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake. About 1.5 million people were living in tent cities crammed into every open space in the capital city of Port-au-Prince. Many have left for new settlements but about 85,000 have been left behind. It’s hard to pinpoint how so many people can still live in such conditions so long after the earthquake, but one thing is for sure - Haiti needs help.

Some women find work washing clothes for less than $3 a day
Many Haitians do not know where their next meal is coming from. Most of the time, they are sick and finally die from a combination of hunger and sickness. That was the case before the earthquake that took place in January, 2010. You can see they live under a small hot plastic tent. Mom, Dad, and all the children are under one little tent. THIS IS THE LIFE OF AVERAGE HAITIAN FAMILIES LIVING IN HAITI.

We need your help to move these families from the hot and small tents to a house. We already have the land. Some of these families have their own piece of land as well. We simply need your help to make it happen.
