See the CRS page for unlimited opportunities to do some research on specific issues.  Or see our own brochure in the documents page for the projects below

  • Clean water - Water is at the top of their list.  Thank you for your generous donations.  The water well is complete!
  • The goat project via Food For the Poor is complete.  We have sent 80 goats to St. Benoit and the program is sustaining itself.
  • Medical Aid - They need a mobile clinic to visit on a regular schedule.  The closest clinic is a two hour drive and they don't have cars.
  • Agriculture/agronomy - There are programs that can be tapped into to teach them how to get better yields in the fields.
  • Animal Husbandry - We will extend the goat program.  The chicken coop was cost prohibitive from Food For The Poor.
  • Nutritional foods - Most of the children are undernourished.  We are working with Vitamin Angels to distribute multivitamins to children and pregnant women.
  • Sustainable employment - The biggest employer is St. Benoit school and church.  We subsidize them 100%.  They have no other benefactors.
  • Microfinance projects - FONKOZE and CRS has many programs.

All checks for St. Benoit should be made out to "Mary, Queen of Peace" and note "Haiti" on the memo line.
