CARITAS in Haiti

About Haiti
Haiti takes up the westernmost one-third of the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean Sea, with the Dominican Republic making up the eastern two-thirds. A distance of roughly 700 miles from Miami, Haiti is the most impoverished country in the Western Hemisphere.

Living on merely $1 USD per day, 80% of Haitians live below the poverty line, making the needs of children for food, clothing, adequate housing, healthcare, and education unattainable. Over half of the population is under the age of twenty, making the education of Haiti’s young people a priority.

The number of children orphaned, and people displaced after the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in 2010 is difficult to precisely determine.

Helping to Heal

In Haiti, CARITAS For Children’s ministry support is the indigenous congregation of the Little Sisters of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus (PSST). CARITAS For Children works with these religious women to help provide hope and encouragement to ease the desperate situation of daily life in Haiti.

CARITAS has a child sponsorship program in six locations from north to south of Haiti including two orphanages and six primary schools where the Little Sisters of St. Therese provide for the academic, spiritual and nutritional needs of these children.
