Project HOPE Continues Its Work in Haiti

   Mar 15, 2024

Amid escalating violence and political unrest in Haiti, CharityWatch reached out to several Top-Rated charities with a history of working in the region to understand what aid they are continuing to provide.

Project HOPE responded to CharityWatch’s inquiry on March 13, 2024. We hope you find this information useful as you consider how best to support Haitian relief efforts during this difficult time.

Is your organization still operating in Haiti? If yes, please describe your operations there.

Yes, Project HOPE implements a primary health care program program that involves mobile clinics, water and sanitation (WASH), and Mental Health activities in the departments of Nipes, Sur and Grand'anse."

Considering the political instability that has escalated in recent days, can you share how your organization is responding? Specifically, are you working to evacuate your staff, contractors, or other contacts, or are you continuing to provide aid, and in what capacity? 

"At the national level, specifically in Port-au-Prince, the security situation has had a direct impact on Haitians and the nonprofits like us that serve them, given that most government entities are not functioning or functioning intermittently, and medical supplies and humanitarian assistance is limited. We've noticed a significant uptick in migration of people fleeing the violence in Port-au-Prince and heading south, which has exponentially increased the demand for support. While the security context is directly affecting Project HOPES's activities, we are continuing to operate mobile medical units, distribute hygiene kits, promote health and hygiene activities, and support mental health needs."

Are you currently collecting donations specifically for Haiti relief currently being conducted in the country? If so, can you share a link to that specific donation page?

Yes, the donation page is" here

Can you share your imminent, future plans for conducting charitable work in Haiti? Meaning, do you intend to evacuate your staff, contractors, or other contacts, or do you at this time intend to continue your work there?

Our plan is to maintain the activities until the end of March without interruption, we are having a good influx and participation from people in the community, and we have a sufficient stock of medicines that will allow us to achieve this. Likewise, if the context becomes complicated in our geographical area, we will implement our contingency plan depending on the situation."

Is there any additional information you would like to share?

While we anticipate that the coming weeks could increase levels of violence across the country, we will continue activities as long as we can. We believe that thanks to the good acceptance of our programs among the population, we will be able to continue implementing."
