Please join the Friends of Fort Liberté in creating a new community for elderly villagers In the rural community of Bayaha, Haiti. Near the Jericho outpost church, numerous elderly Haitians live without families and no means to support themselves. They live in 8 X 8 foot rooms with no windows, a dirt floor, and leaky roofs. These huts are made from sticks and mud, or with walls made from scraps of tin or an old tarp. We are financing the development of Jericho Village which will have 10 duplexes, a community kitchen, and latrines. We also plan to have fruit trees and container gardens. The unique thing about this project is that 100% of the money donated will go directly into the Haitian economy, buying building products, and employing laborers, masons, and carpenters. This project will put Haitians to work and result in housing for elderly Haitians. Our first goal is to raise $25,000 to obtain a promised dollar-for-dollar match! Be a housing hero to these elderly Haitians and help us make Jericho Village a reality!

A Haitian proverb, “Piti, piti, wazo fe nich li” translates to “Little by little, the bird builds its’ nest”. Every little bit helps. Will you help us build nests for these elderly Haitian villagers?

$30 will pay for one square foot. How many square feet will you help us build?
