2010 - Present

Project Size: >$100,000

Immediately after the devastating earthquake which struck Haiti on January 12, 2009, the WRF shipped food, water and medical supplies from the Dominican Republic to a central distribution center set up in the New Apostolic Church in Leogane. With the voluntary assistance of the local lead pastor, Dr. Thenor, help was provided to more than 1000 people in need in the surrounding neighborhoods. Relief shipments were conducted until mid-2010, when the local food and water situation started to stabilize.

The WRF is now partnering with its German sister organization, NAK karitativ, to fund and manage the rebuilding of one of Leogane’s leading schools, the College Platon. Work on this project started in December 2010, with an estimated completion of mid-2011. The project includes the construction of an eight-classroom school building and necessary facilities (sanitary installations, kitchen, etc.).
