RECENT RELIEF EFFORTS

Coverng Roofs in Jeremie, Haiti
May 8 - May 15, 2017

covering roofs

A team of 9 Haitians from Haiti Share went to a poor community on the outskirts of Jeremie, Haiti to put roofs on several homes that had been devastated by Hurricane Matthew and had still not been repaired. Jeremie is about 170 miles from our training center near Port-au-Prince. They bought the materials from local businesses in Jeremie in order to encourage the economy there.

"We have so many stories and at times we were on the verge of heartbreak, to see how the people suffer in soul and in body. But we did the best we could to help them. We want to thank the donors and churches who supported the trip. God will bless you, as do the people that have a roof now."...from the director of Haitian operations

Latrine Project in Gressier, Haiti

latrine

Dr. Frantz Codio, a native Haitian and a long-time friend of Haiti Share was deeply concerned about a neighborhood in Gressier, Haiti, which consists of around 100 families living in a sandy area between the highway and the sea without any toilets, either indoor or outdoor. He involved the community in planning a project to build a latrine and asked the engineer teach some of the young men in the community how to build the toilet and supervise them during the process. The project was completed in late February, 2017. Community involvement, teaching and training - this is a method of helping that resonates with Haiti Share's vision, so Haiti Share was pleased to help with the financial support for this project.
