About Helping Haiti

Helping Haiti’s mission is to provide the people of Cité Soleil with sustainable, community-driven, development programs that focus on increasing the health, safety and well-being of the community.

Our mission is realized through several projects and programs, all centred around Cité Soleil, Port-au-Prince, one of the poorest communities in the western hemisphere. While we are physically in Cité Soleil, we walk the streets – through the good, the bad and even through the worst… meeting the citizens of Cité Soleil and getting to know them on a personal level. This approach allows us to forge ever-lasting trust and relationships with the people we’re helping.

Helping Haiti became a Canadian Registered Charity in 2010, and is comprised of a volunteer Board of Directors.  Unlike traditional larger NGOs and charities, we work one-on-one with the very people receiving your assistance. We have no staff and our volunteers are responsible for the cost of their own travel & living expenses in the field, allowing your donations to be delivered directly to the front line – in person!
