people, the children, will become the educated majority, independent
thinkers and leaders of the future. Community minded they, will

A not for profit Christian organization, who's mission is to alleviate
the needs of the impoverished Haitian children, orphans and families

We further uplift the needy, by supporting and partnering with existing

Voices for Haiti in the midst of Hurricane
The past few weeks have been difficult ones for
Haiti as the devastation of hurricanes Fay, Gustav, Hanna and Ike
have left a death toll in the hundreds, tens of thousands homeless,
and hundreds of thousands of people in dire need of humanitarian
aid. The destruction has hampered relief efforts as roads and bridges
to areas most-affected are damaged and unusable. VFH is hard at
work raising funds to send to our team in Haiti to help in our relief
efforts. Your help is desperately needed. Please go to our donate
page to help us with all you can in this time of great need.
Voices for Haiti has partnered with other organizations
and institutions to provide free housing, and educational and medical
services to thousands of needy children. We seek to, primarily,
educate the children and their families; however, we are very cognizant
that education cannot be complete unless the child is fed, clothed
VFH has allied itself with partners such as Habitat
for Humanity to provide volunteers and funds for construction of
new homes. In partnership with ADRA Haiti, we assist in feeding
children and families. Every child who enters our school is fed
one meal a day. Twice a year our physicians and nurses travel to
Haiti to provide free medical care and medicines to our children
and their families. In addition, we run free medical clinics for
the surrounding communities and churches. Though we no longer run
an orphanage, we support many orphanages throughout the Island.
A list of the orphanages our organization assisted last year is
available on our partner page.
VFH specializes in these areas of outreach:
- Orphanage & Sponsorship
- Housing Assistance
