501(c)3 Tax-Deductible Non-Profit (Tax ID: 20-8863448)
156 South 4th Avenue, Mount Vernon, NY 10550

Caiman Haiti Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to providing relief to poor, distressed and underprivileged individuals living in Haiti. Our central purpose is to develop academic scholarships and educational programs to help the people of Haiti overcome daily challenges and find a path to a better future through life-changing opportunities. We supply them with educational materials, medical supplies, food, clothing and other essential items.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and the second most densely populated. Still reeling from the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, Haitians’ homes and schools have not been fully rebuilt. There is an inconsistency of electricity, food and clean water; and many promised relief funds have not yet arrived. Deficient sanitation systems, poor nutrition, and inadequate health services plague the country. In addition, limited access to quality education continues to be a key factor hindering Haiti’s social and economic development.

Gabriel Laine, founder of Caiman Haiti Foundation, was born and raised in Haiti. Eight years ago, he experienced a revelation that inspired him to personally take up the fight against the poverty, lack of education, hunger and health deficiency in his home country. Over the years he has been able to bring aid to hundreds of people. On his most recent trip, he was able to bring medicals supplies, educational tools, food, etc., to 1,500 individual. For three years he led a “Feed the People” program but unfortunately lack of resources disrupted his progress.

We're seeking volunteers to help us on our mission. Please contact our office or send us an email for additional information.
