I am so proud to share with you the good work that Reiser Relief is doing in Haiti! They have many projects all over the country. The one project i would like to highlight is the Village of Jesus in Leogane. The Village of Jesus is a home for 36 elderly women, providing medical care, food, shelter and love. The roofs on the five buildings were 20 years old and leaking very badly making sleeping difficult when raining. With Reiser Relief leadership and funding all these roofs were replaced! I can first hand report that what they say they support they do and in a timely manner! Reiser Relief is a first class non-profit and you can have confidence in donating to this organization.
