ADDITIONAL WAYS TO HELP

SPECIAL CAMPAIGN - PLANT A TREE IN HAITI

Hands Together's Effort to Reforest Haiti

Join us in restoring the forests of Haiti by donating a tree. 98% of land in Haiti has no trees which leads to soil erosion and flooding. Our students have been planting close to 100,000 trees and we want to plant more in Port-au-Prince at our 7 school campuses where trees are desperately needed. Your donation of $10 provides a seedling and the materials to care for and nurture the tree. Click button below for more information. Thank you!

What We Do

Hands Together has been working alongside the very poor for over 25 years, providing hope and strength to the most destitute and violent areas of Haiti.

 Our work is founded upon the Catholic teaching that recognizes the dignity of every human life and a fundamental responsibility to the poor and vulnerable.

All of our outreach programs are Haitian-run, with generous financial and material support coming from very special people, parishes and groups.

  Hands Together feeds 25,000 people each month through our schools and elderly programs.

Testimonials

Archbishop Eugene M. Nugent, Apostolic Nuncio in Haiti writes: 

"This is to state that I, Archbishop Eugene M. Nugent, Apostolic Nuncio in Haiti, do hereby recommend the work being carried out by Rev.  Fr. Tom Hagan O.S.F.S, Mr. Doug Campbell, Executive Director and co-Founder as well as their associates who form Hands Together, a Catholic Missions charity in Haiti which is active in the poorest and most deprived areas of Port au Prince, Cap Haitien and Gonaives Dioceses.

I have been able to appreciate at first hand the wonderful work being done by Fr. Hagan and his team in very difficult circumstances and often in situations where their own lives are in danger. I can also vouch for the transparent way in which funds have been used so as to benefit the maximum number of people and in a way that addresses their real needs."
