Lunch time! Haiti is still experiencing many difficulties brought on by gangs throughout the country.

Haiti Project News Roundup

It is hard for me to believe it has been 24 years of service to Haiti. This journey has had lots of twists and turns and a few switchbacks. The journey began at the suggestion of a Salvatorian priest and has been continually supported by the Salvatorian family and a multitude of others. In the beginning, we were overwhelmed by the poverty and all the needs. But we rolled up our sleeves and with lots of help, dug in. We were naive in so many ways, not understanding the culture and the impact of being in a constant state of …

Christmas/End-of-Year Gift Appeal for Support of The School Lunch Program

Dear Partners, The children are not eating every day. They are hungry. Food costs have tripled. The cost has risen from 25¢ to 75¢ per meal! Not only has inflation driven up food prices, but transportation prices in Haiti have gone through the roof. Normal shipping has been disrupted by violent gang activity. Many drivers are reluctant to risk their lives and many food shipments are stolen before they leave Port au Prince. It now costs $500 a day to feed the 650 children, 27 teachers, and 12 cooks at Our Lady of Guadalupe parish schools. It now costs $650 …

Announcing our new website

Dear Faithful Partners and Benefactors. Happy Advent. This year we did not publish a newsletter. Instead, I have been building a new website from the ground up. It is live now and we invite you to come visit. The new website was made necessary because our original site had been hacked and our email to announce new blogs was taken over by bad guys. We apologize. We tried many different solutions and finally decided we needed to start over with a new domain name. We are still in the tweaking stage. This email is also a test to ensure our …

Haiti Update

March 8th, 2022 Greetings partners in Haiti Lent is the season we are given to be still and to take our eyes off of ourselves and our wants. It is the season to give our alms for the needs of the poor, the widows and orphans, the strangers among us. When we are presented with the opportunity to donate to a cause,  it is a simple matter to write a check, (or swipe our card), and go on about our daily lives feeling a little better about ourselves. It is another thing to open our ears to listen, our eyes …

Feeding the least of his people

Thank you, partners, we are just finishing up the school year in Haiti and are pleased to report that your support made it possible for The Haiti Project to provide 58756 meals this school year.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. …and our ability to address the extreme food shortage in our rural villages …
