School Kits and Personal Care Kits Help Students Learn in Haiti

13:34 Sep 22 2014 Port-au-Prince, Haiti

Description
Even before the 2010 earthquake, Haiti was the poorest country in the Western hemisphere, with 80% of its population living under the poverty line and 54% in abject poverty. The earthquake is estimated to have caused $7.8 billion in damages, and despite international pledges for reconstruction, rebuilding has proceeded slowly.

School Kits and Personal Care Kits will be distributed to impoverished Haitian families. Many beneficiary students come from families who struggle to afford one meal per day, and these donated resources will support their health and education.
