Mother Teresa described Cite Soleil as the hardest 2 kilometres, she had ever walked in her life. This neighbourhood, located in the city of Port-au-Prince, has a long history of extreme poverty and violence.
As a densely populated slum, there is no running water, sewers, or public services. Many of the houses here are made from salvaged materials, and most people do not have access to sanitary conditions or basic human needs.
"My life was forever changed within seconds upon arrival into Cite Soleil. The shock of knowing, a place like this exists in the world, is beyond comprehension." - Serena Bufalino
HHH facilitates a summer school program for 50 children. We offer alternative learning, provide sporting equipment, and art supplies.
There are many children living on the streets in Cite Soleil. HHH works with community leaders to provide shelter and safety.
Food is extremely difficult to obtain and there are high rates of death due to starvation. When HHH is present, we run feeding programs for the community.
We collect gently used clothing and shoes from our Canadian and US supporters. We distribute much needed personal care items to the children and their families.
We at HHH, invite our volunteers to Haiti, to experience life and challenges first-hand.
