A large majority of the Haitian population is below the age of 25. These young people are living a life of idleness in a country torn by division, social inequality, economic disparity, and gripped in political gridlock. These young people are marginalized by their own society and ignored by their own government. They are unemployed and are out of school (if they attended at all). As a result, most of them are extremely vulnerable to negative influences and are often used by corrupt politicians to create instability. And we know, as the old saying goes, “idleness is the mother of all vices.” Read more here >>
On October 4, 2017, Hurricane Matthew, a category 4 storm, decimated the southern part of Haiti, including the village of Roche-Jabouin. It completely destroyed 119 of its 125 houses in the village and wiped out its only clean water system. Since then, approximately 1,560 families are without clean water and are forced to gamble their life by drinking and bathing with a contaminated water that is unsafe for human consumption. As a result, hundreds of children are being diagnosed with water-borne diseases, including typhoid, cholera, and chronic diarrhea.
But you can help save their lives by supporting our project to repair the clean water system and provide safe drinking water to the families. RSHaiti needs to raise at least $35,000 to repair the water system: to pay for Reverse Osmosis units, Softener, Microbial Filter, Inverters, Solar Panels, Submersible Pump, Batteries, and Controller. Please make a donation today.
Reunion Sportive has started a solar lamp project for school children in Haiti. These children live in rural communities with no electricity, making it very difficult to do school work when the sun goes down. RSHaiti donates solar-powered lamps to these children, so that they can read at nights and further their education. We have thousands of children who need these lamps. Please support this project if you can. Each lamp costs $20. Learn more >>
After Hurricane Matthew destroyed the southern part of Haiti, Reunion Sportive has undertaken a reforestation project by planting trees to strengthen the local communities, reverse the environmental degradation, and combat climate change.
