“Bring beauty from ashes…” Isaiah 61:3

Imagine being alone and forgotten….that is how the families of Lahatte, Haiti feel. They live in abject poverty and do not have access to food, sanitation or housing. Dilapidated shacks made of mud, clay and other discarded items are used to build decrepit hovels they call home which are no match for the strong winds, rains and hurricanes. Children and the elderly are highly susceptible to long-term illness due to the unsanitary environment and appalling conditions.

“VTS Homes (http://www.vtshomes.com) has chosen to partner with Food For The Poor because FFP has clearly demonstrated they are a leader in providing humanitarian services around the world. At the same time, FFP has maintained an efficiency ratio of 96%, meaning their administration/fundraising expenses are only a mere 4% of their total expenses. That is amazing, and it is that same type of efficiency VTS seeks out in all of its partners,” said Rob Owens, president of VTS Homes.

Your gift will give hope…

Food for the Poor believes adequate housing and proper sanitation are a basic human right. Phase One of The Lahatte Project provided 15 destitute families with a sturdy double-room home with sanitation.

There is no greater joy than giving a mother a key to house where she and her family can feel safe -- where she can turn the lock and not have to worry about the security of her children. Phase Two of the project will provide an additional 13 homes.

Above all, your gift will demonstrate the love of Jesus who reached out and saw the needs of others and gave of Himself. You have the power to be that change so that Haiti can have a better tomorrow!


About Food For The Poor

Since its inception in 1982, Food For The Poor has been serving the poorest of the poor in 17 countries throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. Thanks to faithful donors, Food For The Poor's programs provide housing, clean water, education, micro-enterprise initiatives, healthcare, and emergency relief in addition to feeding hundreds of thousands of people each day.

Collectively, Food For The Poor has raised over $11 billion in aid, more than half of which was provided in the last five years, and has built more than 91,000 housing units for the destitute. The best part? Total administrative costs have remained under 5%, which means that more than 95% of all donations go directly to programs that help those in desperate need.
