Why Care

Proverbs 31:8-9: "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."

These are the Facts:

  • the poorest country in the West
  • ¾ the population lives on less than $2.00 a day.
  • 50% of children are not enrolled in school
  • 2/3 the population does not have formal or steady work
  • only 51% of girls and 48% of boys attend primary school; only 21% of girls and 18% of boys will continue to secondary school.
  • Nearly 200,000 people living with HIV/AIDS (highest in Caribbean)

People will become outraged and upset when their coffee is mixed up at Starbucks, but they will turn a blind eye to desolation and human suffering in their own back yard?

No. We believe people are better than that. We believe people care. For we are charged to “speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.” Caring4Haiti is not in the aid business. We are in the Restoration and Nation Building business.
