Hearts with Haiti, Raleigh, NC
• Hearts with Haiti (HWH) is a nonprofit that was founded in 2001.
• HWH fundraises to support a Haitian ministry that cares for
disadvantaged young people, including former child slaves, street
children, and the severely disabled.
• The earthquake of 2010 in Haiti destroyed two of
the facilities we support, but we have rebuilt one
and have grown our programming.
• We are still fundraising every day to keep the
mission alive and to rebuild Wings of Hope, our
home for the disabled.
• HWH has a hardworking Board of Trustees and
one staff member in the US, Geoffrey Hamlyn,
Executive Director. There are around 80 staff
that work for our ministry in Haiti.
How You Can Help
Our offices are right across the street from
NCSU at West Raleigh Presbyterian.
The PHC helps HWH with administrative tasks
– such as mailings and research.
Every two hours volunteered = 1 PHC point.
During the next 2 weeks we will have significant
needs for support on mailing projects. We will
send requests out through Brandon Williams
and Michael Tilley.
