What is For Haiti With Love?
For Haiti With Love was founded was founded by Don DeHart on his first trip in the winter of 1968 and is needed as much, if not more, today. They work in the northern part of Haiti, an area which has been mostly ignored by other aid organizations. Their base is in the city of Cap-Haitien, not far from the cruise port of Labadee.
Many of the Haitian people who lived in Port-au-Prince, affected by the earthquake have migrated north to this region, while most of the foreign aid resources have gone toward Port-au-Prince. For Haiti With Love is one of the few groups established in the northern region where the need is continuously growing.
For Haiti with Love operates an orphanage for 30 girls, a food program for locals and refugees from Port-au-Prince, and a free 24-hour emergency medical clinic specializing in burns. As funding permits, the organization also builds houses for the homeless.
