Recovering from Haiti Earthquake.

This week we have highlighted the work Heifer has been doing in Haiti both before and since the earthquake. Here's a quick roundup:

Our current major effort in Haiti is our extensive project called Rural Entrepreneurs for Agricultural Cooperation in Haiti (REACH). The project aims to help 20,250 families with gifts of livestock and by strengthening communities through the construction and management of goat and swine breeding centers, many of which will be owned and operated by women.

You can learn more and donate to REACH by visiting now.

Here's a list of recent posts from other great organizations applying their work in what has long been the most impoverished and vulnerable country in the Western Hemisphere:
