Help Heal Humanity (HHH) is an international (Canada and USA) non-profit organization with a mandate to provide education and nourishment to some of the most “at risk” youth and children on our planet today. Specifically, we have focused our efforts in Canaan and Citi Soleil - Haiti, where over 4.5 million people go without electricity, running water, food, resources and absolutely no form of government support. HHH achieves its goals in part through the creation and implementation of a number of fundraising events including our annual Local Dinner Parties and Global Dining for Humanity Events, Art and Music for Humanity, Travel for Humanity, Yoga and Fitness for Humanity, as well as by partnering with other organizations to grow our awareness and purpose on the planet. Thus far, we have successfully built a school in Canaan Haiti that educates and empowers 121 primary students per day. Today we are looking for our newest director who will play the primary role in helping us establish our Food for humanity charitable goals.
