The Haiti Connection organized in 2000 to improve communications, initiate coalitions, and provide information and support to those who work on collaborative educational and medical projects in Haiti.
Babette has clean water, nutritious food, and attends an excellent school. Her father graduated with a degree in accounting and her mother is a nurse who helped children after the earthquake.
This child has dignity, grace, and tenacity. Someone who loves her wove a red ribbon in her hair. She and her family need clean water, good food, a safe shelter, and education for productive employment. Join us to give them opportunities for her future.
