Current Activities
Primary to all support is a monthly food allowance. Every month we send $1000 to feed the seniors and staff.

Due to the massive earthquake on January 12, 2010, refugees began surging out of Port au Prince to return to the homes of friends and relatives in the countryside villages, like Jeremie. We are seeking ways to feed the many refugees flooding the area. The LOTM second offering for Jeremie earthquake support allowed us to provide over three tons of food and medical supplies. The LDS church in Haiti donated approximately 1000 hygiene kits, 120-25 pound bags of beans, 100 water filtration bottles, 100-25 pound boxes of rice, and 2 pallets of shelf stable milk (2000 servings per pallet). Additional aid was donated by a warehouse in the Dominican Republic. Air and ground transportation for the aid was provided by our relief assistance. Additionally, 15 family sized tents have been sent to Port au Prince for emergency shelter and we continue to provide supplemental food support to children and families in Jeremie.

Feed a Senior
There are 19 senior residents at the Good Samaritan Home and 3 staff members. The cost is $40.00 per month to supply one person with rice and beans. Several friends and supporters of Jeremie Relief have pledged monthly food support on a long term basis. More pledges are needed.
