Over the past 3 years, Haiti has been rocked by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that claimed over 300,000 lives, brushed by a multiple hurricanes, and continues to live through a cholera epidemic that effected over 200,000 and killed almost 4,000.
The Empire Haiti Coalition (EHC) is a group of not-for-profits, churches, businesses and academics that have partnered with six church-schools in the plateau region of Haiti. The objective of the partnership is to support our Haitian neighbors with education, water, nutrient, health, and other basic living needs.
Together, the Cathedral of All Saints, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, St. George’s Episcopal Church, St. John’s Episcopal Church St Paul’s Episcopal Church Albany and St Paul’s Episcopal Church in Troy, lead by To Love a Child, Inc. form a local partnership that assists an orphanage and four schools and churches in Haiti. They reach over 1,000 children and touching thousands of other adults. The partnership’s goal is to build relationships throughout Haiti’s Central Plateau and provide services and resources that will assist in creating self-sustaining programs to improve family environments and communities.
