> Haitian families as they work with CARE to overcome the many daily
> challenges they face.

> Alongside CARE's press officer, vistitors will take part in a five day
> exploration of the fishing ports and villages of the small country.  Peruse
> the photo album or read more about Haiti's history and CARE's work in
> rehabilitation and development.  Spend time getting to know this
> impoverished country, the struggling people who call it home and some of the
> relief and development programs that CARE is implementing in Haiti's
> northwest, the poorest corner of the poorest country of the Western
> Hemisphere.  Visitors may make an online donation to CARE to support its
> ongoing activities in countries like Haiti, or they may sign up for CARE's
