About This Activity

People Helping Haiti is a local community creating opportunities for people to give generously to the desperately needy people of Haiti.
Food. Clothing. Jobs. Camp for Kids.

Your money will help FEED and CLOTHE real children in the slum of Renault. Malnutrition, disease and nakedness characterized the children of Renault before Rod and Debbie began to serve there 6 years ago. Through their Sunday school ministry each week, 1,000+ children are clothed, loved, and given “manna packets” which provide 6 protein-rich meals. Rod and Debbie have also installed a clean water well in Renault to provide drinking water and help alleviate water-born disease and illness. 
Your money will go to provide real JOBS for real Haitians. There are very few jobs to be had in Haiti: the unemployment rate hovers around 70% with little hope for improvement. As a part of their ministry to Haiti, Rod and Debbie hire local Haitians and provide a fair wage for work done in and around Camp Mahanaim. Jobs include cooking, cleaning, construction, yard work, driving and general camp maintenance. 
Your money will allow real Haitian children to attend CAMP Mahanaim. At the camp, children will sleep in a bed, be given 3 meals a day, and play sports – all luxuries that are very rare for Haitian children. This year’s camp theme focuses on teaching children how to deal with the (very new) onslaught of TV and media. Children will be encouraged to protect their eyes and hearts from images that are inappropriate for their age.
