We are the best place to look for
organizations that support Haiti.
The biggest problems facing Haiti can have domestic solutions. In order to save lives, advance health, and assist families all over the Island, it is our responsibility to support Haitian partners whose innovative ideas and methods can do so. Accountability is our top priority. We'll give pertinent data in the aim of fostering some transparency for people looking for the truth. There is still work for us to do. We will keep looking for solutions and implementing change in Haiti by identifying problems.
THE STATS -HISTORY
"Haiti was shunned by the outside world and suffered a crippling trade embargo. Unable to export any of its products the country started to plunge into poverty. By 1825, Haiti was left with little choice but to agree to compensate French slave-owners 150 million French Francs in gold in order to reopen trade. To service the loan, Haiti borrowed money from French, American and German banks at exorbitant interest rates. By 1900, Haiti was spending about 80 per cent of its national budget on loan repayments. The repayments would last for a total of 122 years and were not finally repaid until 1947."
