Artists for Peace and Justice begins rebuilding street schools in Haiti

URGENT HELP NEEDED TO REBUILD AND MAINTAIN 50 SCHOOLS IN HAITI – DONATE NOW PLEASE
Before the tragic earthquake that set off a catastrophic situation in Haiti, Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) had already been working on the ground with doctor and community organizer Father Rick Frechette in the slums of Port-au-Prince. The organization was building vital street schools that would provide an education, a warm meal, clean drinking water and hope. Following the devastating earthquake, many of those schools were destroyed.
Paul Haggis, the founder of Artists for Peace and Justice and its passionate advisory board of some of the world’s most talented actors and singers, have come back fighting and are determined to raise sustainable funding to secure a future for the children of Haiti.

Through its generous donations, APJ has contracted Homes from the Heart (homesfromtheheart.org) as a construction partner and is partnering with Operation USA (opusa.org) to truck in building supplies as well as ship medical and humanitarian relief from the Dominican Republic.
Donations to APJ have been used directly to buy food and supplies for Saint Damien?s Hospital in Port-au-Prince, the only free pediatric hospital in the country, while funds have also been used to rent or purchase heavy equipment to clear away the dangerous debris. The exterior walls of the medical compounds have been reinforced to provide safety to the patients inside.
“APJ is different than a lot of charities. We are incredibly selective about who we work with in Haiti,” says Haggis. “We also guarantee that 100 percent of all money raised goes directly to those hospitals, schools, medical facilities and community betterment programs. We’re [...]
