To invest in the future of children around the world, by ensuring that children living in impoverished conditions are given access to education, medical services and a chance to change their economic existence.
The 2010 earthquake exacerbated many of the issues that have been plaguing Haiti for a majority of its history. Nearly 200,000 were killed and millions more are still feeling the effects 5 years later. The island nation has had a troubled history over the last century or so, suffering from governmental corruption and extreme poverty, along with crippling natural disasters, none more decimating than the earthquake.
The time has come to aid the struggling nation and bring it to an equal standing among the more affluent Caribbean Island nations. And it begins with the children.
Though a half decade has passed since the devastating earthquake and much of the infrastructure has been replaced, there is still a long way to go. Over 500,000 citizens are still living in temporary shelters with limited access to rudimentary necessities like electricity and plumbing.
The conditions in these facilities are largely responsible for the spread of disease. Basic societal infrastructure like hospitals and schools lag behind the rest of the civilized world. But change is possible and you can help.
