At home and abroad
In Haiti, it is reported that up to 85 percent of the population is illiterate and nearly 90 percent of the children cannot afford to go to school. Many people die because proper medical care is unavailable or inaccessible.
In order to reach its goals, the Foundation counts on your generosity. Gifts of time, money, talent, and material goods to The Good Samaritan Foundation of Haiti, Inc. are equally valuable to the Haitian people.
