Helping Haiti

Helping Haiti Helping Haiti provides the people of Cite Soleil, Haiti with sustainable, community-driven, development projects and programs. Founder Tammy Aristilde began as a humanitarian in Cité Soleil, Port-au-Prince, Haiti in early 2008.

Our mission is to provide the people of Cité Soleil, with sustainable, community-driven, development programs that focus on increasing the health, safety and well-being of the

First Aid training isn’t just about treating the patient- the provider needs to stay safe as well! Wearing proper personal protective equipment, like gloves and masks, keeps you safe from infection when doing first aid.

Our first aid instructor, Jonka, has always been dedicated to improving life in his community. He was always helping out, whether through repairing homes or operating machinery, but never thought he would work in health care.

Jonka started out by participating in our First Aid for Peace course and then went on to study nursing. Now, through his dedication and leadership, he is inspiring others in the community to learn life-saving skills.

Remember, you should only approach a scene if it’s safe for you to do so!

January 1st, 1804 marked the end of the Haitian revolution and the beginning of independence for the very first black nation. This day in history would begin the end of slavery world wide.
The country celebrates their Independence Day with a bowl of pumpkin soup. A meal the French would prepare and never share with the people they enslaved. Soup Joumou is a reminder of the strength in unity and their fight for freedom.
Today during Canada’s Black History Month, we shed light on not only a leader, but a champion, Jonka Herold.
In 1976, Jonka moved with his mother to Cite Jean Claude, which would soon be renamed Cite Soleil. He describes his youth as a time of struggle, but he was a ‘clever kid who had focus’.
Cite Soleil eventually became a space known for its poverty, violence and challenges with affording food and an education.
‘I went to school at an older age, with a dream of becoming something important’ Jonka said.’ My father did a lot for me, but he passed away when I was 18 years old and my life changed completely.’ It was in the misery of losing his father, that Jonka was able to find his strength. He said he knew he would be successful in his life.
When I first met Jonka in 2008, he was heavily involved in his community. He could do everything! Right from operating machinery to repairing homes, he had a work ethic like no other and an endless interest in learning.
Jonka joined and excelled in our First Aid for Peace course and has provided emergency first aid at our clinic while he furthered his education in nursing. He is currently instructing our high level first aid courses for both men and women and we’re excited to see what comes next.
Jonka said he never thought he would study or work in health care. He has always held our Helping Haiti team in high regard for providing him the opportunity to learn about healthcare, but we know, it’s been his drive and determination that’s paved his way. Jonka’s contributions to his community are endless. He’s improved the value of life for so many through his clinic work. He’s inspired even more, by his leadership and the legacy of his teachings will long outlive us all.
Thank you old soul, for your strength, your words and direction over the years.

Kassandra Nielsen this is something that you should look into
Hello! I'm happy to see pages that are working to help Haiti. We also own an organization called the Caiman Haiti Foundation, our main goal is to rebuild the lives of the Haitians through good nutrition and education. Right now, we have a book wherein the proceeds are used to finance our organization. Hope you can help us too by downloading or promoting the book: https://www.amazon.com/Patriotic-Man-Living-Aboard-Gabriel-ebook/dp/B06ZYQW8GX. Thank you.
