“The partnership agreement with Hope for Haiti is part of a decade-long commitment by the State of Qatar to the People of Haiti,” said His Excellency Meshal Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the United States, “Through the Qatar Haiti Fund, we are proud to partner with Hope for Haiti in support of their important work, and we hope this gift also serves as a symbol of solidarity from the People of Qatar to show that Haiti is not forgotten and not without hope.”

“Given the current challenges Haiti is facing, we are humbled by this incredible donation that will directly support the Haitian people,” said Skyler Badenoch, Hope for Haiti CEO. “Thanks to the support from the State of Qatar, hope for Haiti will be able to improve the quality of life for Haitian children, parents and grandparents. It’s incredibly important for the success of our mission that the support from the Qatar Haiti Fund goes directly to improve the quality of life for the Haitian people, particularly as communities in Haiti are currently challenged by fuel shortages, a rising cost of living, and a lack of access to education and healthcare.”
