ERSHF, Inc started as an incorporated organization a few years back and it has been such a blessing to have been given the opportunity to provide support to children and their families in Haiti. Working alongside our team in Haiti, who, has always, done a wonderful job assisting us with our annual backpack give away.
Unfortunately, last year, due to Covid 19, we were unable to host our annual giveaway or host our annual spring camp program. We miss meeting new children and their families, hear them perform all sort of performances. From singing to dancing to acting, you name it! They make what I do feels so rewarding. Watching them put everything into what they do, amazes me every single year.
Since we started a new year - Happy New Year 2021! - just inaugurated a new President (Joe Biden) and our first female Vice President (Kamala Harris), I wanted to recap over the years on different organizations that we have collaborated with the wonderful that they offer in our community.
Over the years, we have had the pleasure of providing support or sponsoring different programs provided by other organizations, who are also within the same field of helping those in need in our community - specially those of the Haitian community.
In 2019, we were able to provide some support to one of the organizations out there that is working hard to provide a vision for a better Haiti. This organization, Youth For Haiti 1804, is run by a group of youth based in the USA. They also host different events in Haiti in the hope of providing support to those in need. It was a pleasure providing the little help that we were able to. To learn more about them and what they do, please check out their Instagram page @youthforhaiti1804
In 2020, we sponsored a scholarship program - run by the Golden Vie Inc. It was a great honor to be able to provide support to our Haitian children in the states, who are in need of financial support for college. We were among a lot of very charitable organizations who, also, see the vision of this organization and wanted to help. We pray that we can assist them again when the time comes. 2020 has hit a lot of students and their families hard, so I know what they did, really helped someone.

In the same year 2020, we were able to donate a few dolls for a great cause! Fusion Dolls, is doing an amazing job, providing dolls of different colors in order to encourage diversity among our children. When the opportunity came to support, we jumped right in. Even our donation was minimal, we were proud to be part of that cause. To learn more about Fusion Dolls, please visit their website.
To start off the year 2021, we wanted to support another organization, we think is also doing a great job providing support to children in Haiti. Because we are unable to travel to Haiti this year, we figured we could lend a hand. Help Kids in Haiti (H.K.H), is a non-profit, like the others mentioned above, that provides assistance to school age children in Haiti. For their event this year, we donated 120 backpacks. I'm truly looking forward to, eventually, collaborate with them on an event in Haiti as well. To learn more, check out their Instagram @Help_Kids_In_Haiti
We are looking forward to seeing what each of these organizations will do in the upcoming days and we are praying for a successful year 2021!
