About Haiti South...
In the city of Jeremie, most adults work as subsistence farmers or street vendors, and poverty prevents children from attending or completing primary school. There is a shortage of medical services, and many children suffer from flu-like symptoms caused by malnutrition. On October 4th, 2016, Hurricane Matthew struck Jeremie and the surrounding region. In the city alone, over 80% of buildings were destroyed including houses, churches, school facilities, and medical centres.
Mission - Haiti South
The Chalice Haiti South Sponsor Site strives to ensure that all of the children that they serve are immersed in a safe, healthy learning environment. To further support their education and childhood development, the children are provided with medical care and nutritious food in the belief that healthier, happier young adults will be better equipped to break the cycle of poverty in their communities.
Sponsorship in Haiti South
Thanks to the love and generosity of Canadian sponsors, the Haiti South Sponsor Site fully equips children for schooling, educates them, and provides for their nutritional and medical needs. The site also helps families learn how to manage their finances. Chalice is working on construction and repair projects in Haiti South in the wake of recent natural disasters.
