So many people have given their time, expertise, and money to help HUFH help in Haiti, too many to mention but I thank you all.

HUFH continues its work with to deliver aid to families. HUFH is also creating and supporting existing centers which provide shelter, food and safety for displaced youth at a time when they are most vulnerable to exploitation.

Thanks for the support!
