By making a donation to RSHAITI you allow us to continue our programs and create new ones to give hope and a brighter future to Haiti’s youth.

Reunion Sportive d'Haiti is collecting funds to provide urgent aide to the victims of the Haiti earthquake. On August 14, a massive 7.2 earthquake struck the Southern part of Haiti, the area where Reunion Sportive d'Haiti has been working for the past 11 years. A few of our staff, many of our volunteers and youths in our summer programs are directly affected. Many lost their homes and are homeless. Others are injured and need medical assistance. Our organization serves the cities of Les Cayes, Port-Salut, Camp Perrin, Torbec, Roche-a-Bateau, and Saint Jean du Sud.

Thus far, more than 400 deaths have been recorded by the Haitian government, thousands are homeless, and an untold number of people are still missing. People are currently searching for their loved ones under collapsed buildings, and given the earthquake's magnitude, it's too early to assess the full scope of casualties and destruction.

Given our experience working in the area for over a decade, we are deeply connected to the victims and our army of staff and volunteers are ready to assist by providing much needed water, food, sanitation kits, blankets, and tents. These items are needed immediately, and every penny collected will go directly to the victims (no administrative cost). We have the staff, the storage, and transportation capacity to deliver the aide.

Summer Camp Project

Over 70% of Haiti's 10 million inhabitants are under 30 years of age, and over 80% of them are unemployed. In effect, these young people are living a life of idleness in a country torn by division, social inequality, extreme poverty, economic disparity, and gripped in political gridlock. Despite facing severe adversities, few of these youths receive the supports and resources they need to cope and succeed. Learn more >>

Clean Water Project

On October 4, 2017, Hurricane Matthew, a category 4 storm, decimated the southern part of Haiti, including the village of Roche-Jabouin. It completely destroyed 119 of its 125 houses in the village and wiped out its only clean water system. Since then, approximately 1,560 families are without clean water and are forced to gamble their life by drinking and bathing with a contaminated water that is unsafe for human consumption. As a result, hundreds of children are being diagnosed with water-borne diseases, including typhoid, cholera, and chronic diarrhea. Learn more >>

Solar Lamps Project for School Children

Co-Founder of Reunion Sportive, Luther Voltaire, has started this solar lamp project for school children in Haiti. These children live in rural communities with no electricity, making it very difficult for them to study and do their schoolwork after the sun goes down. RSHaiti donates these solar lamps to these children, so that they can read at nights and further their education. We have thousands of children who need these lamps. Please support this project if you can. Each lamp costs $20.. Learn more >>

Reforestation Project

After Hurricane Matthew destroyed the southern part of Haiti, Reunion Sportive has undertaken a reforestation project by planting trees to strengthen the local communities, reverse the environmental degradation, and combat climate change. You can support the reforestation project by making a tax-deductible donation. Each tree costs $3. Learn more >>
