A country ravaged by flooding from natural disasters, oppression from war, and little employment opportunities, among many other factors, has landed Haiti as the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
In 2010 a 7.0 earthquake produced havoc on this already destitute country. Some estimate that over 300,000 people lost their lives, while countless others were left homeless and broken. Years later, still an estimated 300,000 people are living in tent cities. Some of which, only consist of tarps or blankets held up by any items they can find, such as sticks and rope.
One week after the earthquake GPPD had an open door to enter Haiti and bring help and aid to the people. Through partnerships on the ground, people like you and a GPPD Associate, we have been privileged to continue pouring out help and hope in order to show God's love to the forgotten and orphaned of Haiti.
Come on a Journey of Faith, Hope, and Love as we bring Help and Truth to the people of Haiti!
