Haiti

Total Schools: 30 | Schools in Haiti: 1

Pledge to Humanity is reaching out to the poorest country in the Western hemisphere: Haiti! Even four years after the devastating earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, the country remains in the recovery phase. More than 250,000 Haitians lost their lives and thousands remain homeless. Hurricanes and cholera continue to kill more victims.

Pledge to Humanity is helping the children on the streets in Haiti. Many of them are homeless and without any resources. Another 1500 children and young adult die of heart failure every year in Haiti. Funds will be raised to find a home for children and to put them into school. Also Pledge for Humanity supports the first Heart Surgery Program in Haiti which started with American physicians this year at the Hospital Sacre Coure in Milot.

In 2013, volunteers from Pledge to Humanity traveled to Port-au-Prince, Haiti to serve at donation-only medical clinic. They brought items to share with children at an orphanage that cares for local children. Thank you to all who supported this trip!

Lucy and Reese Water for Haiti
Hi, our names are Lucy & Reese. We are 10 years old and in 5th grade. We have known each other since we were 6 weeks old and we are doing a school project called ROPES (Right of Passage Experiences).  Our goal is to make our community a better place and we are raising money to help provide clean water to more people in Haiti. Our goal is to raise $5,000 towards providing clean water.  Please help us help people in Haiti!

So far, we’ve raised $1,750.26 to help the people of Haiti!


IMG_6625-800pxAfter the crisis in Haiti, Pledge to Humanity worked together with the Rancho Romero Student Council and many parent volunteers to put together a fundraiser for Haiti relief called A Lunch for Haiti. Over 30 parents and students of the Rancho Romero Student Council joined together to serve a soup lunch to all 563 students. Instead of bringing a lunch or buying a lunch, the students donated money to this great cause. Rancho Romero students raised $3,406 and Pledge to Humanity contributed $1,000, bringing to a grand total of $4,406 !!

This money will be sent to Free the Children where it will be used for emergency relief, shipments of medical supplies, and education projects for the people of Haiti.
