Learn more about JRS work in Haiti

Long before the crippling earthquake of January 12, 2010, Jesuit Refugee Service had a grassroots presence in Haiti, providing humanitarian assistance to displaced Haitians both in the town of Ouanaminthe on the northeastern border with the Dominican Republic, and in the Dominican Republic itself. JRS responded to the needs of Haitians during a decade of political upheaval, successive natural disasters, and a food crisis, which devastated the Haitian economy. We knew Haiti in both her pain and her laughter – as a country where many children under the age of twelve in the countryside have no clothes to wear; a country where people spontaneously gather in community during frequent black-outs to sing songs, play dominos, and keep the night at bay. Haiti is also a country with a rich artistic and political tradition, inhabited by a deeply faithful people who have continued to hope for a better life despite devastation and adversity.
