How HCS works
As funds are raised, Mathilde meets by phone with her network of allies, fellow agronomists, former CARE colleagues, family, and childhood friends on the ground in Haiti. Exact greatest-needs are identified and funds go directly to those highest priorities. It’s real-time management that really works: HCSs first food delivery arrived to the village kitchen before the mountain roads were cleared. Then medical teams and agriculture assistance arrived and continues today.
There is much more to do.
Looking to the future, we are concentrating on
- Agriculture assistance.
- Medical care, and
- Getting the Renaissance Elementary School back up and running with classes restarted and hot lunches again being served.
HCS is a small charity, directly serving neglected remote Haitian communities. We are flexible enough to get things done rapidly, even in the midst of chaos. Our support funds go directly into the village, to a proven team of community members who know what their village needs and how to get things done.
We thank you for all you have done in 2016 to help the people of Au Centre in their time of need.
We look forward to your continued support in 2017. We believe that the solution to Haiti’s worst problems lies in empowering Haitians themselves. By believing in what Haitians can accomplish, we are a partner, not a patron. We are a neighbor, not an outsider.
