Hope for Humanity works with Haitian Christians to address psychological trauma and recovery in Haiti.

The earthquake that struck Haiti in January 2010 did more than destroy buildings and roads. It left in its wake emotional scars and psychological trauma that is only now beginning to be truly understood. The greatest impact is on children and young people who have witnessed the destruction of homes and communities and experienced the loss of family members and loved ones—but the aftermath of the earthquake includes emotional distress that can be seen throughout the entire population.

Working with Christian pastors, members, and churches, Hope for Humanity is reaching out to address these difficult issues. Your help is needed as Adventists in Haiti and in North America work together to bring hope and emotional health back to the communities destroyed by the disaster. Programs for children, young people, and adults are now underway.
