Donate to Help Haiti Recover | Heifer International®
While other organizations concentrated on meeting the immediate needs of earthquake victims, Heifer International quickly launched a series of projects to ensure that Haitians would be able to support themselves once the emergency first responders went home.
These projects are igniting incredible transformations.
Now, Heifer International is building on this momentum by launching a project that will help more than 100,000 people — the largest animal project of its kind in Haiti’s history.
REACH out to help Haiti through your gift to Heifer.
Your gift to Heifer’s REACH project will go directly toward helping the people of Haiti achieve a sustained long-term recovery from the devastating earthquake.
Through REACH, you can help provide goats, cattle, poultry, pigs and training so families in Haiti like Kenflore’s can build integrated farms to improve production and strengthen markets with buyers.
Kenflore’s mother, Jeanne Odne Elfine, is so grateful that she now has food to feed her children and money to send her daughter to school, thanks to the gift of goats from Heifer donors.
But there are so many more families in Haiti who urgently need a hand up so they can get back on their feet.
Your Gift will Help Families:
- Start family-run breeding centers that will improve the local economy by creating jobs and train participants to provide for improved livestock breeds — something that has never been done before in Haiti.
- Improve Haiti’s soil so that it will produce better crops. That will increase crop production and quality, and ultimately grow enough food that the farmers can use to sell for income and build businesses.
- Train Haitian farmers in disaster preparedness and teaching them how to protect their biggest assets — their livestock.
- Protect the environment by placing animals where they are complementary to the crops, and train participants techniques such as zero grazing which protects groundcover and manure collection which provides organic fertilizer. Our goal is to leave the environment better than we found it.
