The Toussaint Louverture Cultural Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation established to promote Haitian culture, stimulate artistic creativity, and help restore Haiti’s cultural heritage. One of its goals is to raise funds for the repair of the Musée d’Art Haitien du Collège St Pierre which was severely damaged by the 2010 earthquake and is still closed to the public. In 2013, the Foundation organized a Call for Art Donation to gather a Save A Museum Collection. In an historic show of solidarity Haitian artists and collectors donated more than 80 paintings. Many were sold at the Save A Museum Exhibit/Sale held at the Wilmer Jennings Gallery at Kenkeleba in New York City in September 2013. It helped fund the first phase of the museum’s repair, yet much more is needed to complete the work as the total cost is estimated at $200,000.00.
You can see and purchase many of the wonderful paintings from this collection right here at MedaliaArt. Also available on the site is the Hector Hyppolite book. Sales of the book have so far raised $5,500.00 that will be used to restore the paintings damaged by the earthquake.
From Here To Haiti, LTD. is a not-for-profit organization which seeks to raise funds to benefit the people of Haiti by repairing non govermental public places. Our current project is Marie Reine Imaculee Catholic Church Les Abricots, a town in the southern part of Haiti.

Art Creation Foundation for Children is a non-profit arts organization created for education and personal growth of children in need in Jacmel, Haiti, founded in 2003. ACFFC is a grassroots project with realistic goals. We can not change the world. We CAN, however, change the lives of the children we serve. Nothing is easy in Haiti. Despite this, we succeed!
In 1985, Michael Geilenfeld, a former Brother with Mother Theresa’s Brothers of Charity, started a small home for five boys to bring them off the streets and offer them a Christian family life. Twenty years later there are now three homes serving more than 60 children. Graduates from the first home, St. Joseph’s Home for Boys, run a home for disabled children called Wings of Hope outside Port-au-Prince and a home for young boys called Trinity House in a small coastal town.

... Friends of the Children of Haiti works impossible miracles.
Friends of the Children of Haiti is a bold, all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose medical missions bring healing and hope to thousands of Haitians each year. Moreover, Friends of the Children of Haiti has pulled off a rarity: In a country that disdains and discourages foreign ownership of land, the organization has built its own clinic facility, which stands ready to serve Haitians year-round.
Hôpital Albert Schweitzer (HAS) is an integrated system of health care that provides hospital treatment and public health and development programs for the 278,000 impoverished people of the Artibonite Valley in Haiti.
