It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you the H.E.R.O. Annual Fund, the Fund that supports all of the programs that H.E.R.O. operates in Haiti. This year our goal is to raise $25,000.00 during the month of July to ensure the continued operation of our programs at the high quality of effectiveness and efficiency that the children of Haiti deserve.
As a result of the generous donations of individuals, families, private organizations, and foundations, H.E.R.O. has been able to implement programs in Haiti that provide street children and orphans with an opportunity to become healthy, educated, self-reliant, and socially conscious citizens of Haiti and the world. As a direct result of the donations received H.E.R.O. has been able to:
• Establish a 12-bed residence for orphans in Port-au-Prince that provides holistic and comprehensive care to the orphaned, abandoned, and neglected children of Haiti
• Launch a 100% free Education Program for Street Children that serves over 70 students daily
• Initiate the Child Sponsorship Program that supports our children by providing free school uniforms, books and supplies, monthly medical checks and daily nutritious meals
• Acquire 2000 square meters of land in the rural town of Maniche designated for the construction of a 24-bed residence for orphans to be completed in 2012
