Why Haiti

Map of Haiti

We chose to build the Village of Joy in Haiti because:

  • Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere
  • An estimated 80% of Haitians live under the poverty line
  • 54% live in abject poverty and suffer from malnutrition
  • Desperate mothers feed their children cakes made of mud to settle their hungry stomachs
  • More that 10% of children die before reaching their fifth birthday
  • Life expectancy is 51 years for men and 54 years for women
  • Haitians need someone to take notice and to care
