WHY HAITI

BECAUSE A GOOD NEIGHBOR IS A PRICELESS TREASURE.

Haiti is not an earthquake. Haiti is not a hurricane. Haiti is not political violence. Haiti is our neighbor. 1.5 hours from Miami, it is one of the closest islands to the United States, and remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

BECAUSE CHANGE IS POSSIBLE.

How is that possible? Not only is it close, it’s small enough to be manageable. 10 million people live in Haiti. That’s the population of Los Angeles. When you look at the numbers of those in need, it’s remarkable how possible change really is.

In order for that to happen, we need to address challenges. In Haiti, nowhere has history been so violent, bloody and brutal. The road from slave nation to sovereign state has been long and arduous, on the Haitian people and their land.

OUR MISSION

To save lives and build sustainable programs with the Haitian people quickly and effectively.



READ MORE ABOUT OUR MISSION

Take a moment to think about how you define community. Is it defined by your neighbors? Is it your co-workers relatives or social media acquaintances? Is it those we count on for basic services? The doctors, teachers, postal workers, garbage collectors? Is it the highway your drive on, or the house you live in? Or is it shared experiences, hopes and dreams. Community may be challenging to define in our modern world, but it’s easily felt.

Now consider that in many parts of Haiti, community is not defined by what people share, but more by what they lack.

After the 2010 earthquake, the community of people we serve were defined by homelessness. They lived in a tent city a stone’s throw away from where they lived the day before the disaster. J/P HRO helped relocate all families back into safe and durable homes in their neighborhood of Delmas 32 and we continue to serve the same community in a new location.

At J/P HRO we’re about supporting stronger communities in Haiti. That sounds great, but what does that really look like? It looks like ensuring access to basic services that should be every human beings basic right.

FROM DISASTER TO DEVELOPMENT

Our organization began as an emergency response to save lives, and grew into a impulse to build sustainable programs.

DELMAS 32

Delmas 32 is the community we serve. It’s home to 90,000 residents and is roughly one square Kilometer. That population density rivals the top 10 cities in the world, according to recent UN studies.

OUR STAFF

On average, J/P HRO employs nearly 350 staff. There are more than 80 Haitians volunteering with J/P HRO and among the full-time staff in Haiti, 95 percent are Haitian or are of Haitian origin.

"Haitians are ready and willing to be the soldiers of change, we need to identify them, work with them and be willing to accept their guidance.”

WE ARE ONE

Haiti was singled out as a country of people who are unwanted and we just marked eight years since over 250,000 of our Haitians neighbors lost their lives.

For this reason, and so many others, we are taking a moment to share the Haiti we know and love. The Haiti filled with neighbors, friends, co-workers, brothers and sisters who, with their bare hands, pulled each other out of rubble and carried each other to safety. It is the Haiti of our 200 Haitian staff, working tirelessly every day to work with communities to provide medical care to infants and children while also promoting public health to tens of thousands; where our teachers provide young boys and girls a genuine opportunity to succeed. We know a Haiti that has been hit harder and more often by everything mother nature has to offer, and yet continues with a resiliency you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else; where the all-Haitian J/P HRO emergency response team to Hurricane Matthew, which devastated Haiti's South, helped 25,000 people return to a safe, dry home.

At J/P HRO we have always refused to blindly follow what has always been done. All of J/P HRO successes are guided by the people in Haiti themselves, by getting down to the ground level to do things with and in support of Haitians.

With time, Haiti will become more integral to the global economy. This is change that you will be able to see, touch, taste and wear. This will be no small feat, but J/P HRO is no stranger to challenging the status quo and persevering in the face of long odds. It's where we began and it's time to go back to what started this organization. We are not complacent. We are not okay with "good," or even "great." We are J/P HRO, and we want to keep doing the impossible.

Haiti is not looking for a handout. This great country will not be defined by an earthquake, hurricane or poverty. Instead, Haiti's difficult history will be overcome by the will of its people and with the attention and support of a compassionate world.

Today more than ever, we must stand in solidarity with the people of Haiti. Please help us show them they are in our thoughts and hearts.
