Review for Mission Haiti Inc, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am another quintessential white privileged American wanting to “give back” to the world. I am also one of those lame volunteer tourists who say that working in Haiti was “life changing”. However- all that is completely true for me.
It was a radical experience unlike nothing else. I thought my previous life experiences would have prepared me for Haiti. They did not.
The things I saw and lived were nearly unbelievable. I don’t think you can fully appreciate Haiti until you have been there.

That said, I believe that Mission Haiti is an excellent charitable organization. They have been committed to the people of Leogane since the ‘90’s. The have minimal overhead and organizational fees- I cannot quite you exact numbers, but I have seen first hand the running of the organization and promise that it is not rife with corruption.
I was able to meet the nuns who actually run the school/gardens/home for women, and come to understand their mission and compassion. I was able to visualize projects completed and those Stil in The works. We were able to see first hand the damage still apparent from the earthquake in 2010. And come to understand a people continually betrayed by a corrupt and no effectual government.

The value of Mission Haiti is immeasurable, especially to the lives it impacts in Leagane. It is a most worthy and trusted organization.
