Our current project is in Haiti in the area of Bell Anse.

It is only reachable by foot or by boat. This region has three villages and a total population of approximately 600 people.

Life expectancy in this area is very short due to very harsh conditions. Underage sexual activities are common and teen

pregnancy rates are high while literacy rates are low. Central Park Angels has been working with this community for several

years, but there is so much more to do. 

What We Have Accomplished So Far

The Bell Anse community has already undergone some significant transformation. Central Park Angeles has been able to:

Recipients get to keep the offspring.

Foster confidence and ambition among the Bell Anse community members.

READ MORE

Train a local in midwifery which has already decreased the neonatal death. As of 2019 neonatal death was reported zero.

Begin a livestock cooperative. We provide livestock to individuals on a temporary basis. Once the livestock reproduces, we reallocate the original animals to someone else.

READ MORE

Build a school and provide daily lunches, which incentives students to attend.

What We Do

Central Park Angles is a nonprofit group that seeks to support individuals battling severe poverty all over the world. We are currently working to improve the Bell Anse community in rural Haiti. Our goals for bolstering the Bell Anse community are as follows:

Create opportunities for women to start their own businesses in order to support themselves.

READ MORE

Install water pumps that provide fresh, clean water that humans need for survival.

READ MORE

Build a school that can provide food and education to more than 300 children.

READ MORE

Support a midwifery service for pregnant women in Bell Anse.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our efforts.

We welcome and appreciate anything you can give to support this cause. With your help, the children of Bell Anse will receive education and food, and the women of Bell Anse will receive basic health care and the opportunity to have their own business and feed their families. Bell Anse is just the first step.

In order to accomplish these goals, we need to fundraise $50,000 a year. $36,000 will go towards sustaining the school and midwifery service, and $14,000 will go to supporting female-owned small businesses.

We arrived at the rural village Belle Anse after a long journey by plane, road and motorboat. Belle-Anse is a coastal region in Haiti at the bottom of several hills, a position that makes it vulnerable to flash floods.

 

Noah’s Ark Humanitarian project set out to help this community of about 350-400 people combat malnutrition following hurricane Mathew in 2016- the main goal was to create independent, sustainable living through farming practices and animal rearing. Our dynamic team provided education, training, and sustainable living resources. We also provided chicken coops, water pumps, school supplies, and basic medical care for women (which included screenings for HIV and STDs). 

 

Hurricane Matthew (2016) was a powerful and devastating tropical cyclone that caused widespread destruction and catastrophic loss of life in Bell Anse. Many residents living in the village along the coast were unaware that Matthew was even approaching the country a day before it was expected. When we arrived by rowboat to set up our first medical clinic, we found that the residents were still living in poorly constructed homes without electricity, sources of freshwater and basic needs.

 

Maternal mortality rates are high in Haiti. Complications like eclampsia and hemorrhaging are the main cause of maternal death. There is no adequate, quality emergency obstetric or neonatal care services available to the residents of Bella Anse. The nearest emergency hospital is 3-4 hours by boat followed by 3-4 hours on the road.

Our clinic focused on empowering individuals and developing sustainable services. This included family planning, the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, nutrition and hygiene, clean water supply, and one-to-one education for the only midwife in the village, who happened to be homeless with 9 children of her own.

The Belle Anse population lacks access to drinking water and proper sanitation. Limited access to safe drinking water, and lack of sanitation all contributed to the poor nutritional status of children and women in Bell Anse. One of our sustainability projects included the installation of a water pump in order to provide access to safe water for Belle Anse families. Secondary education still remains a challenge for many Belle-Ansouis. The school shelter is in disrepair, with no drinking water available to the school children. Those who wish to obtain a solid secondary school education must travel to the capital Port-au-Prince. Our sustainability project focused on rebuilding the school facilities with water access and an established pre-school academic subject program.
