Haiti is considered the poorest county in the Western Hemisphere. Literacy rates are less than 50%.
Without an education Haitian children are left with little hope of a future.
The January 2010 earthquake in Port au Prince killed an estimated 150,000 people and left thousands more homeless. Drought and Hurricane Matthew has only worsened the infrastructure of much of Haiti’s housing. Less than half the population has access to basic health care. Many citizens – especially children – are without the necessary means to survive and thrive long term. With the help of our partners, CCI will continue to make a difference in the lives of these children.
