Cite Soleil is the poorest slum in the Western Hemisphere. The living conditions for the estimated 200 to 400 thousand residents, are deplorable. Barefoot Children play in garbage filled streets which wind through endless rows of shanties created from scraps of tin and cardboard. Pungent odors of burning garbage and raw sewage fill the air. Dirt cakes, prepared by moms deperate to feed their starving children, dry in the heat. At times, gunshots ring as gang members vie for territory, power, money and women. We must ask ourselves if this is the life that was intended for people to live. With your generous donations, we are able to help these people secure their lives by providing them with a stable home. The protection of four sturdy walls is one of the greatest gifts in life that most take for granted. Thank you for your consideration!
