Cite Soleil is the poorest slum in the Western Hemisphere. The living conditions for the estimated 200 to 400 thousand residents, are deplorable. The majority of them live in extreme poverty. More than half of the homes are made completely of scavenged material. An estimated 60 to 70% of houses in Cite Soleil have no access to a latrine, instead there is a poorly maintained open canal system that serves as its sewage system. Children with no clothes or shoes play in the sewage and garbage filled streets. We must ask ourselves if this is the life that was intended for people to live. With your generous donations, we are able to help these people secure their lives by providing them with a stable home. The protection of four sturdy walls is one of the greatest gifts in life that most take for granted. Thank you for your consideration!
