Review for Haiti Micah Project Inc, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I saw HMP in action 5 months after the 2010 earthquake. Five women were feeding over 400 children a day out of a small room next to St. Pierre's School in Mirebalais. I was impressed by their steady strength and determination placing huge, heavy iron pots of rice and beans on wobbly iron grates over charcoal fires, and mashing and straining vegetables and bean sauce with pestles and dime-store sieves. In my world, I cook over gas, have a ventilation fan, and use a cuisinart or blender for sauces. But this experience was not about cooking technique, of course. It was about human grace under the pressure of poverty, and the incarnation of God's universal love and mercy.

This is a unique organization of Haitians leading and serving other Haitians. HMP runs on volunteers in the U.S. and professional and volunteer staff in Mirebalais. It is targeted, efficient and trustworthy. Nothing is wasted. When you give to HMP, you know exactly how your donation will be used. Please help them continue this life-saving work!

Review for Haiti Micah Project Inc, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This small nonprofit is one of thousands operating in Haiti. Many "aid" and "relief" organizations send well-intentioned funds and people to provide basic necessities: food, clean water, education, health care. The sad truth is that too many of these NGO's do not employ Haitians, and therefore falter or fail. Here is where HMP distinguishes itself. It is an organization with a 10-year track record of Haitians helping Haitian children to get a leg up into a better life. Through its feed ing and education programs, HMP nourishes and empowers 400+ children in Mirebalais, Haiti. HMP lives out the cry of the prophet Micah, who told us mortals to "do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God."
