What sets FIDA apart from other organizations.

While there are thousands of international organizations present in Haiti doing good work, much of the activity has created a sustained dependence on foreign intervention to provide health care, education, food, and relief work when natural disasters occur. FIDA-pcH is a registered Haitian not-for-profit and maintains an all-Haitian staff team.
