This clinic is run by the Sisters of Mother Teresa. There are many children suffering from many various ailments, largely due to malnutrition. Our volunteers assist with the basic necessities, such as feeding and holding the children, changing their clothes/diapers and any other assistance as needed.
This is the largest slum in Haiti. We built a school in 2005 and since then we have been enhancing and expanding the school. Our volunteers help with construction, but we also hire Haitians to work at the school and to help with construction.
The Haiti School Building Project (Canaan)
Canaan, Haiti is located twelve kilometers north of the capital city of Port-au-Prince. This city, like many others in Haiti, was devastated as a result of the 2010 earthquake. In Canaan, there are currently thousands of displaced Haitians living in tent structures, struggling to survive without consistent access to water, food and electricity. The earthquake reduced the schools to rubble. In response to this, we have developed The Haiti School Building Project for the children of Canaan.
Ground was broken to build this school in May of 2011 and we’re VERY close in putting a roof on this.
Let’s work together and get this done! It’ll help provide an education, hope and opportunities to many children who don’t have the means to attend school. Your generous support and love is appreciated.

Cité Pele Hospital
This hospital is run by the Brothers of the Poor of Mother Theresa. The patients in this hospital are all adults and suffer from many different ailments and injuries. Our volunteers help feed patients, provide massages and assist with rehabilitation exercises and basic hygiene. In addition to physical care we also provide company to patients and engage in conversations.
This is also run by the Sisters of Mother Teresa. Sometimes it is feeding, massaging talking to them, cutting nails, painting nails – making them laugh and generally paying attention to their needs.
