Touch Haiti is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which was founded by Mitch Laguerre in April, 2012 as a means to continue providing support to the people of his hometown, Petite Riviere de Nippes, Haiti, after the massive earthquake that left the country in ruins in January, 2010. With a small group of people in the US and in Haiti, Mitch was able to raise some money to provide some of the people with food and water to hold them up temporarily. From that point on, Mitch continued to provide for some of the people whenever possible, as some continue to reach out to him till this day.
Touch Haiti was formed in order to continue what Mitch started since 2010 on a bigger scale. As time goes by, it is apparent that the people of Petite Riviere de Nippes need a lot more help than imagined. Not only are they in need of some basic day-to-day items like water, they are in dire need of a full-fledged redevelopment. We would like to help with that. With a little bit of help from other individuals and other corporations, we believe we can help the people of Petite Riviere get back on their feet and re-beautify their land.
