Statistics speak for themselves

  • the Republic of Haiti occupies the western, smaller portion of the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antillean archipelago, which it shares with the Dominican Republic.
  • Haitian, Creole and French are the official languages.
  • Haiti achieved independence from France at the same time as France had its revolution. It was the first Carribean Nation to be free from Colonialism.
  • the country has yet to recover from decades of brutal dictatorship and exploitation as well as the 2010 earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreaks.
  • since the earthquake of 2010 and other natural disasters since, the HPH Haiti home has found itself meeting the needs of not only their residents and staff,  but the communities and its people in the general area and beyond.
  • The St. Luke's Foundation was formed to help people with medical needs and support for families. St. Luke's Foundation relies solely on donations from around the world. More information and acheivements will be made available soon.
