The Story

On January 18 2018, IPSOS Global Healthcare sponsored four IPSOS employees on a working visit to Cabaret, Haiti. 

The 2010 earthquake devastated the country’s infrastructure, and there is still so much need.  In fact, close to 59% of Haitians live under the national poverty line of $2.41 a day.      

The Joseph School currently provides a free education to 90 students every day across six separate classrooms.  The school provides lunch – which may be the only meal many children receive each day.    

During our January 2018 trip, we worked to help lay the foundation for a house for the school custodian.    We prepared vegetables together with volunteer parents (my favorite task).    We helped prepare Friday’s lunch for the Children, and I picked up some great cooking tips.    We visited the site of a healthcare clinic (currently looking for funding), visited a homeless shelter, an orphanage, and also nearby villages where the Joseph School children live.   Together, we raised close to $5,000 to contribute to the school; the school used the money to buy a cast iron stove, a freezer and a refrigerator for the newly built kitchen facility.  We also carried over ladles, rolling pins and chopping boards - which we used immediately while we were there!  I hope to make this an annual visit (and  will pay my own travel expenses), and want to continue to raise money to contribute to the wellbeing of the school children and their families.  Expect to see more fundraising lunches and dinners planned in the Greater Cincinnati Area!
