Several organizations in the South Florida area answered the call to help with the Haitian relief effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. HALO is participating in these efforts by collaborating with different organizations to donate non-perishable food, clothing, medications and other items listed in the flyer and links below. In addition, monetary donations are being accepted and are tax-deductible. Please help us support these activities listed below.
For more than a decade, the committee members of A Day with Santa (ADWS) - a subsidiary of the Haitian American Leadership Organization (HALO) - have been bringing the Christmas spirit annually to thousands of underprivileged children of Haiti through holiday parties and toy distributions along with Santa.
However this year, following the disastrous category 4 Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, our hearts led us to a different mission: that of bringing desperately needed relief to families that have lost just about everything. ADWS has joined forces with Project St. Anne - another non-profit organization already established in Camp-Perrin, one of the hard hit towns in the South of Haiti. Since 2008, Project St. Anne has committed themselves to advocating for the less fortunate by creating educational opportunities for 140 children, annual community meals for 1500 men/ women/ children, in addition to providing holiday gifts and support to over 700 families. As of now, it has been reported that approximately 90-95% of their homes, schools, hospitals, religious establishments, crops, and livelihood have been destroyed beyond repair. Therefore, we are re-focusing our fundraising drive this year to lend them a hand... Your donation will help families regain their lives with the basic necessities needed for survival, and also through the reconstruction of their homes, schools, and church. For those who already had very little, Hurricane Matthew took everything!
THE SITUATION IS DIRE...WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW!!! PLEASE DONATE WHAT YOU CAN...THEN SPREAD THE WORD. Your donation is tax deductible. HALO is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization A Day With Santa
