CT Walks For Haiti is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We are completely run by volunteers, and any/all donations go directly to the charities.

Participating Charities

The 2014 walk supported the following projects:

Haitian Health Foundation

The Haitian Health Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization which provides healthcare, development, and the hope of a future to over 225,000 of the poorest people living in rural southwestern Haiti. These are people who live a day to day “survival” life – living in hovels cobbled together from thatch, scraps of tin, and banana leaf, unfit for human habitation. It is common to see children, rooting with animals through garbage dumps to find scraps of food. In some of the villages HHF serves, over 70% of children seeking care are malnourished. It is a sight to bring tears to the most hardened heart. Our appeal is for funding for our Feeding Program, which provides nutritious, protein-rich food to the most vulnerable under our umbrella – malnourished children and pregnant women. For three consecutive years, HHF has been awarded Charity Navigator’s highest designation – 4 stars – for excellent financial accountability and low overhead.

GOAL

$4000 to feed malnourished pregnant women and their young children.

Medical Aid to Haiti

Medical Aid to Haiti, Inc. (MATH) is a Connecticut based, non-profit charitable organization with the following mission: Helping Haitians heal Haitians by providing needed resources for the care and treatment of their poor. MATH is seeking contributions for its recently established mobile medical clinic in Haiti. The mobile clinic and its Haitian staff operate in and around Port au Prince, Haiti on a regular basis to provide a desperately needed continuum of care. Please visit our website at www.medicalaidtohaiti.org. For additional information please contact Rick Thibadeau at (860) 521-8704, or Nancy Ryan at (860) 232-0255.

GOAL

$4000 to pay the annual salary for a Haitian nurse for the mobile clinic.

Haitian Humanitarian Network

Haitian Humanitarian Network is a 501C3 nonprofit established in 2003 to provide basic health care and humanitarian aid to the poor and needy people in rural Haiti. HHN established and supports the Erline and Armelle clinic in Beaulieu as part of the primary mission to assist all those in need in Beaulieu and surrounding areas.

GOAL

$4000 to develop a medical outreach program to remote areas too far to travel to clinic.

Outreach to Haiti

Outreach to Haiti supports over 300 students with scholarships, allowing them to attend schools and universities and to receive medical care. Outreach runs a clinic that treats more than 1,500 people annually. It provides assistance to two orphanages, a nutrition and meal program, and a participates in home building and economic developement projects. For more than 20 years, Outreach has administered a twinning program that brings together parishes in Haiti with parishes and a high school in the United States. Please visit our website at www.outreachtohaiti.org.

GOAL

$4000 for a comprehensive nutrition program to provide food and vaccinations to malnourished infants and children under five.

Operation Unisson Inc.

Camp Renmen Haiti is a summer health education and health promotion program for children in Haiti. Education in Haiti is not free and since more than half of Haitians live on less than a dollar a day, paying school fees are not an option to many. Due to this many children are not only lacking formal school education, but also skills and basic knowledge about keeping themselves and their communities healthy. Camp Renmen Haiti is providing free health education, teaching skills and creating the future health educators and health advocates of Blanchard, Haiti that will keep their community healthy.

GOAL

$4000 for summer camp providing critical health instruction to children along with a meal (likely their only meal of the day).
