Healing Haiti is a christian organization, most organizations in Haiti are. I feel like it important to let you know that I have not gone to Haiti as an evangelist, my own motives were focused on art being a resource to people who are in desperate need of confidence, dignity and love.
Healing Haiti is an incredible organization that is focused on the heart or Haiti- unemployment. 70% of the population in Haiti is unemployed, with unemployment come poverty, the decay of familial relationships, poor healthcare and nutrition and a host of other solvable issues. Haitians are an incredibly resilient people and Healing Haiti capitalizes on resiliency and celebrates it. The organization build jobs and trains Haitians to fill them, they also serve the elderly, have a school, and orphanage, a feeding program and recently they have zeroed in on healthcare- especially for women.
An organization after your own heart? Me too.
I have been down to the island a few times, running projects from making paper out of rubbish found on the streets, to face painting, murals and sensory/art box building for homes and school looking to fill spare time.
