I was blessed to visit haiti and Kay ANJ with HHA in spring of 2011 and look forward to returning next year. This organization is a mission of sacraficial Love. I saw and continue to hear how LOVE is changing the lives of all the children and really anyone who becomes involved with HHA. Debbie and Bill and their vision and passion are changing lives. This organization is a true life example of what Faith Hope and Love will do as they are responded to and lived out. It continues to be a blessing to be involved in the work of HHA and look forward to being apart of its life changing work.

I recently recently returned from a trip to Haiti with Helping Haitian Angels. The trip was described as a time of "being" and "learning" and it was exactly that. We got to spend time at the orphanage with the children, singing, dancing, playing games just having fun and we also got to learn quite a bit about Haiti. The passion and love that the Harveys and the other volunteers have for the kids is so apparent it is overwhelming. Haiti has many problems and it might be easy to focus on those problems but it is so much more of a blessing to focus on the laughter of the kids, the dancing, the love of learning, the sheer happiness inside the walls of Kay Anj. This organization will make an impact on the kids and on Haiti for years to come.

My sister and her family have made it their mission to help others in need and this organization is the most thoughtful and caring group of people you will ever come across. They have never thought twice about putting those less fortunate ahead of themselves. What they have done, and are doing in Haiti will enhance the lives of others beyond our wildest imaginations. Keep up the good work and God Bless!

My daughter and I spent a week with HHA last summer and what an experience. The group is run with the kids 100% in mind. The Harveys put their heart, soul and passion into this organization. The kids have such a better life because of HHA and they are prospering. Hopefully, by efforts of HHA, these kids will create a new Haiti.

I have personally seen this organization steps beyond the bounds of our commuity in Haymarket, VA to touch others throughout the US who want to help. Launched from the passion for the kids and Haiti, a young girls leadership organization called HALO was formed so high school girls can reach beyond their neighborhood and make a difference in Haiti.

No changes just get more donations

What an amazing organization this is. They go at least twice a year to take care of these children and spend the rest of the year raising money and awareness of what these children are going through as well as preparing items for their next visit. Each person involved makes a huge impact on a child's life and there is nothing more important on this earth than our children. Where would our world be without organizations such as this? I wish we could all go spend two weeks getting to know these children. Our lives would never be the same!!!

Seeing the pictures of these children with huge smiles on their faces as they spend time with the volunteers in the orphanage that was built for them.

This Organization is absolutly amazing. No other words could describe how this organization impacts the lives of not only the Haitian people, but people like us as well. Everybody is this organization puts so much time and work into helping these orphans. Once you meet the orphans, your whole life is forever changed, and they will always and forever have a special place in my heart. This is a once in a lifetime experience, and i feel so blessed to be a part of it!

The first time I went to Haiti, I fell completely in love. My 16 year old daughter and I went with a group of 30 people for the first time in July 2009. It was hands down, the best thing I have ever done with my time. I felt a love for these kids that no word in the dictionary could ever define. I have been to Haiti 6 times since July 2009, and will continue to love these kids like they are my own. My biggest take away? "Life is not about us, it is about what we can do to save someone eles's life." If everyone could save just one person, the world would be an amazing place.

I went to Haiti with this groups in July 2010 and am hoping to return in July 2011. The care and love shown to these kids in one of the poorest countries in the world is nothing short of a miracle. The work this organization does brings to hope to kids that with out them, would be in complete disarray. This kids are fed well, learn, and will have a bright future due to this organization, in a country where bright futures are not seen.
