Stories of hope in Haiti

by Brittney Howell

HaitiWanita is a single mother with three children, ages five, four and three. Wanita faces extreme challenges finding a stable
job because employers will only hire people with professional experience, on top of the unemployment rate being at 80%. She makes a living finding construction work sites and offering to pull water from a local river for the workers.

After the earthquake she lost her home and was forced to live in a tent. She soon found herself with no place to live after the government told her to relocate. Her friend told her about Onaville, a city where many families relocated after losing their homes in the earthquake. She got connected with the local church in Onaville that has since committed to caring for her and her family.

This is Fabiene. She lives with her husband and their newborn baby. They relocated to Onaville from downtown Port-Au-Prince,
Haiti after losing their home in the earthquake. Her husband is a mason, but they still struggle to make ends meet. The food they receive from the USANA True Health Foundation through strategic partnerships and local volunteers is a great help during these difficult times.


73,440 meals were distributed in Haiti during the second quarter of 2014.

Remember, 100 percent of all donations made to the USANA True Health Foundation ALWAYS go toward changing lives across the world.
