It's a New Year..And Haiti's Independence Day!

January 1st is not only the first day of the new year; it also marks Haiti’s Independence Day. This day celebrates Haiti becoming a free republic in 1804 following a revolution that began in 1791. On this day, Haiti declared independence from enslavement. Haiti made history by being the first country in the Western Hemisphere to abolish slavery.

Independence Day is a time to remember those who sacrificed their lives during the fight for independence, and of the universal need to be free.

Haiti has come a long way since gaining independence all those years ago, but we still need your help providing education and nutrition. We are grateful for the support you supply to families and children, and for the opportunity to continue serving Haiti in the new year!
