Bon Samaritan school – Haiti, established by Humanity First
I want to extend an enormous thank you for all of your support and generosity for the support that gave to create the Bon Samaritan school in Haiti. The school is growing, doing well and it is long overdue to show you the fruits of the labor. I was able to meet with the school principle and the pastor to discuss how the school has been doing since last year. I was given a full report accounting for the money that is spent, and we felt that there was good accountability within the system. Another team went to visit the school to provide education to the community health workers, and had the opportunity to capture some priceless photos that I wanted to share with you. The photos give you just a glimpse of how beautiful the school is and the color that brings to the community. Again, this Bon Samaritan school would not have happened if it was not for the amazing support of Humanity First. I hope that we can continue to work together to ensure that these children are educated.

2010 Haiti Earthquake Response
A major earthquake, measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale, wreaked havoc in the impoverished Caribbean island of Haiti. The earthquake struck January 12th at 5 pm EST in a highly populated region 17 km from the capital city of Port-au-Prince. Hundreds of thousands were killed, many buildings have collapsed and the under-developed infrastructure has been severely damaged. Humanity First has been deployed in the region since January 18 providing medical and logistical relief services.

Humanity First is registered in 43 countries across 6 continents, and has been working on human development projects and responding to disasters since 1994. These have included the earthquakes in Turkey, Pakistan, Japan and Iran, floods in Africa and Latin America, hurricanes (Katrina and Rita) , tornado's (Kansas) and wild fires (California) in the USA, Indonesia and Bangladesh, and conflicts in Eastern Europe.
Since its inception and IRS registration in 2004, Humanity First has been focused on spending most of the raised funds on direct program related expenses. As a result, more than 90% of its funds are in that expense category. This is achieved through dedicated volunteers in its management, and program operation teams.
