JCI OPERATION HOPE: JCI HAITI
Every day, JCI members take action to create sustainable positive change in their communities. But when natural disasters strike, members go above and beyond to respond to the communities in distress.
Through JCI Operation Hope, JCI members unite to take action in the aftermath of tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters, reaching across the globe to sustain recovery initiatives and rebuild communities.
JCI Operation Hope is now focused on helping Haiti. With the hard work in the field of JCI Haiti members, along with support from people like you around the world, we can restore the Haitian community. In January 2010, an earthquake devastated Haiti. Since then, suffering has continued. JCI members are taking concrete action to rebuild the infrastructure in their Haitian communities. Your donations will contribute greatly to their reconstruction efforts to bring basic needs, proper housing, economic progress and employment back into their lives.
Donate to JCI Operation Hope today to support these reconstruction efforts in areas of the world, like Haiti, that need it most.
