In Haiti, we build safe and secure homes for families, provide food security, and ship and distribute food, medicine, and emergency supplies.

Our Current Projects

We have completed all 60 homes in Derac, a village in northern Haiti. Over the next few years, Derac will also include a community centre, a school, income-generation opportunities, playgrounds, and a community garden to create a sustainable community.

Gang violence and fuel shortages in Haiti have made it increasingly difficult to distribute food and emergency supplies. Click here to learn more.

How We Help Every Day

FFPC focuses its efforts in Haiti on building homes and villages, ensuring food security, and providing communities with access to clean water.

Haiti is extremely vulnerable to natural disasters. Hundreds of thousands have been injured and displaced in the last decade. The constant threat of disaster has made emergency response and preparedness as well as access to safe and secure housing a priority for Haiti.

With the help of our donors and in-country partners, we work across Haiti to:

  • Build community infrastructure such as homes, medical clinics, and water systems
  • Ship and distribute medicine, medical supplies, and equipment to hospitals and health centres
  • Ship and distribute food to schools, orphanages, churches, and local organizations
  • Implement livelihood and income-generation projects
  • Ship family emergency kits as part of emergency preparedness and response efforts

Our Work with Food For The Poor Haiti

FFPC works with Food For The Poor Haiti (FFPH) and their network of schools, hospitals, orphanages, local churches, and NGOs to provide access to basic needs.

With over 400 staff, FFPH provides housing, food, healthcare, education, clean drinking water, emergency relief, and support of micro-enterprises in local communities across the country.
