Naples, Florida, April 6, 2021- Hope for Haiti and The Qatar Haiti Fund are pleased to share the programmatic impact made possible through The Qatar Haiti Fund’s $1,890,945 donation to the organization in 2019. The significant donation impacted the lives of 300,000 Haitians through Hope for Haiti’s programs designed to improve access to quality healthcare, clean drinking water, and education.
“Thanks to the support from the Qatar Haiti Fund, Hope for Haiti has been able to improve the quality of life for Haitian children, parents and grandparents,” said Hope for Haiti CEO Skyler Badenoch. “The support from the Qatar Haiti Fund came at a critical time, as Haitian families faced significant challenges resulting from political unrest and the social, economic, and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“Through the Qatar Haiti Fund, we are proud to partner with Hope for Haiti in support of their important work, and we hope our gift has served as a symbol of solidarity from the people of Qatar to show that Haiti is not forgotten and not without hope,” said His Excellency Meshal Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the United States.
