Hurricaine Matthew, a devastating Atlantic hurricane, left 900 dead and tens of thousands without homes in the Southern region of Haiti. Approximately 61,500 peple were moved to shelters as storm surges swallowed seaside villages whole. JHSON has been working with NGOs in Haiti for more than a decade. While we can't be there ourselves, we are helping the devastated nation by funding three organzaions so that can bring shelter, clothes, and food to those in Haiti. Join us in giving aid to those most in need.
