Haiti

Where is Haiti ?

Haiti is our neighbor. Just 700 miles to the south and a 90-minute flight from Miami. Close to the United States, yet remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

The country is geographically about the size of the state of Maryland.

Once know as “The Pearl of the Antilles,” Haiti shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic.

How does KORE help?

Our goal will always be to go “Beyond Relief” focusing on treating the underlying cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. Drawing upon the best thinking in business, education, and non-profit worlds, we continue to develop strategies that maximize impact.

We work with families to improve their agriculture practices for better production so they can feed their families and produce a surplus to generate income. When you partner with KORE, you are connecting with real people in Haiti. Your generosity directly impacts children and adults stuck in severe poverty. Through your support, we can supply animal protein to malnourished children and help farmers develop their own business.

It’s a win/win – meeting immediate needs and investing in a sustainable future, all while sharing the Gospel’s message of hope and love.
