The Children in Haiti Needs Your Help!


More than 10 years ago, Haiti was struck by one of their worst earthquakes disrupting and killing the lives of many. Following the earthquake in 2010, Hurricane Matthew devastated the country even more in the midst of its recovery. Now in 2021, a destructive earthquake followed by a strong hurricane have brought hundreds and thousands of lives and buildings to ruins. Many schools, homes and places of worship, have collapsed during this tragedy which greatly interfered with the learning of Haiti children.
