We ship food, clothing and other goods to Port-de-Paix. We depend upon donations of new and used items to sustain those we help. We are are also grateful to our supporters who generously contribute their time and talents. Their donations of in-kind services help ensure that more of each dollar we receive goes directly to help those most in need in northwest Haiti.
It is important to know that your donations get to the people for whom they’re intended. Donations such as food and clothing reach Port-de-Paix in the most direct chain of distribution possible. Volunteers load everything onto the ship in Miami, and a tight network of volunteers meets the ship in Carenage, Haiti, transferring donations directly to House of Hope and Beraca Medical Center. Although our founder Renel Noel passed recently in a tragic accident, our connection to Port-de-Paix remains strong. Renel’s son, Jean Noel, is our current president. Jean is also from Port-de-Paix and is overseeing the same direct chain of distribution.
- If you have food, clothing or other items you’d like to donate, please contact Suzanne Noel at 305-484-8499.
- Due to high shipping costs, we cannot accept donations without prior notification.
Donations of in-kind support are of tremendous value to us. Your help with sending mailings, providing materials to package shipments, donations of office supplies or equipment, help with transportation, and technical assistance are all forms of in-kind donations that we need on an ongoing basis. We can often use in-kind donations to seek matching grants.
If you or your company would like to participate in sponsoring a fundraising event, we have many opportunities ranging from donations of raffle items to catering or special events venues. Volunteers with skills such as carpentry, plumbing, building or repairs are invited to come with us to northwest Haiti on a project.
