Haiti Week

A number of events will be taking place throughout the week including the Haiti Ball, Hugs for Haiti, Host for Haiti, Haitifest, Irish Artists for Haiti and Reverse Pass the Parcel.

These events will be taking place all over Ireland. January 2013 is the third anniversary of the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti that killed over 300,000 and displaced more than 1.6 million people from their homes. While huge efforts in the recovery process are ongoing, particularly through input from the Irish business community, there are still nearly 400,000 people in Haiti living in tents and under tarpaulins (plastic sheeting).

Through Haiti Week we hope we can bring together members of the public and business community to help solve some of the many remaining problems this small country is courageously facing.
Haiti Week, the first initiative of its kind in Ireland, is an innovative partnership developed by a number of Irish business people and led by Irish NGO Haven, to assist the development of new ideas and approaches that will help hundreds of thousands of Haitian people.
