Who We Are
We are a faith based, humanitarian, non-profit organization focused on sustainable development strategies in Haiti and Uganda. We currently call San Diego, CA our stateside home.
What We Do
We exist to help TRANSFORM communities of poverty through TANGIBLE ACTS OF LOVE. We partner with indigenous leaders overseas who are already in the midst of doing good work within their own communities. We come alongside churches, schools and individuals, providing a platform to experience transformational development first hand through these global partnerships. We focus our development efforts on wholistic community care emphasizing food + water, health + hygiene, education, and employment.
Why We Do It
Our hearts ache by the suffering of the global poor. Modeled by the life of Jesus, we believe it is our responsibility to act in love to break these cycles and bridge the gap between the world’s wealth and the world’s poverty. Statistics often misrepresent realities and are of such startlingly large numbers that it is hard to understand how that plays out on a smaller, community-minded scale. Regardless, we choose to listen, learn and act.
At CHF, these statistics are only a start; a driving force and motivation to continue pouring out anything and everything we have for the disadvantaged people in this world.
Food + Water
Globally, 815 million people suffer from hunger; 98% of those people live in developing countries such as Haiti and Uganda. Over 2 billion people worldwide lack access to safe, readily available water at home.
Health + Hygiene
9.2 million children under the age of 5 die every year. 70% of those deaths are from treatable diseases such as respiratory infections, diarrhea and malaria or communicable diseases such as HIV/Aids.
Nearly 15% of the world’s population is illiterate. Globally, 1 in 5 youth are not attending school + Africa is home to half of those youth. 64% of children in Uganda drop-out before reaching high school.
767 million people, or 1 in 10 people live with less than $2 each day. Half of the world's extreme poor live in Sub-Saharan Africa. 14% of Haiti’s work-aged population are unemployed.
