HAITI

Volunteer
Although Anir Experience and the Anir Foundation focus on
Southern Africa, the devastating earthquake of January 12,
2010 on Haiti cannot be ignored. For over 12 years Anir
Experience has been pulling together teams to work on
projects such as building houses, research in HIV/AIDS,
malaria and other health and community issues in Southern
Africa. We are now calling on past and new volunteers to join
us in helping at least a small portion of the Haitian population
rebuild their lives.

We are planning on pulling together 3 teams of 15 persons
each, one medical/health care team, one construction team
and one “what needs to be done” team which will include
working with orphaned children.

Give a little of yourself
Our planned location is not
Port au Prince but the other
side of the island at La Vallee
de Jacmel  - which CNN is not
covering but has also
suffered greatly and should
not be forgotten...
    We are a 100% volunteer organization - we are not endowed -
    we are project-to-project driven and fund raise for all we do.
    We have no paid staff or paid volunteers - All team members

    FAQ
    Q: How is the money I send in or donated being spent?
    A: 60% will be used for buying building & health supplies for the
    community we will be working in, 25% will go towards your trip
    expenses and supplies (airfare, water, food, first aid, etc.), 15%
    goes towards Anir support (travel and supplies for team leaders)
    Q: May I go off on my own?
    A: NO! For your own safety.
    Q: May I take photos of animals & landscape?
    A: Yes, all you want
    Q: May I take photos of the local people?
    A: It is best to ask permission first, ask your team leader
    Q: Is this trip safe?
    A: Traveling anywhere (even to the store) has its risk, but this trip
    has various serious risks. It is a disaster  zone with chance of
    another quake. There has always been a very high crime rate both
    petty and violent in Haiti; that is why it is of the utmost importance
    that the team stay together and no one go-it on their own.
