J/P Haitian Relief Organization wrote -
J/P Haitian Relief Organization formed shortly after the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The organization founded by CEO, Sean Penn began as an emergency response organization. From the time J/P HRO hit the ground in Haiti on it was painfully clear that Haiti didn't need a quick fix. Haiti needed and still needs long-term support. It’s almost two years after the earthquake and J/P HRO is still committed to rebuilding the infrastructure destroyed by the earthquake and combating the poverty that so many Haitians face everyday. J/P HRO is committed to helping the hundreds of thousands still displaced by the earthquake get home.
For the Haitian people home is dignity, jobs, education, good health, family, creativity and a better future for their country. It would be easy to throw up some one-room shacks and say we helped the Haitian people but J/P HRO isn't taking the easy road. J/P HRO is still in Haiti clearing rubble, fixing earthquake damaged homes, helping families move out of tents one a time, building jobs programs, developing public health programs and working side by side with the Haitian people and the Haitian government to solve the nation's problems.
Every contribution you make helps someone get one more step closer to home!
