Outreach to Haiti is a program of the Diocese of Norwich to provide healthcare and education support to the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation, Haiti. They have been working in the Caribbean nation for 30 years, offering healthcare services and student sponsorship’s. They also offer other educational support, parish twinning, support of two orphanages, as well as a neighborhood meal program for children.

James Michel, the chairmen of outreach to Haiti and Daniel O’sullivan, the director of outreach to Haiti sat down with Teresa to talk about some of the conditions and how you can help.
