Supplies Needed and Shipping Programs
RAW Haiti purchases and collects supplies for our programs and ships them to Haiti several times a year. Physical supply donations are being contributed from the New England area, where RAW Haiti is headquartered. Boxes are shipped with requested supplies for the youth programs. Donations of supplies from our American communities are always needed! Materials can be shipped from Boston, New York, and Miami. RAW Haiti will focus on our continued efforts in Cite Soleil, Haiti. This year supplies are being shipped directly to the guest house in Haiti so that the RAW Haiti team could disseminate the materials as needed.

In order for the current dance program to evolve into a more substantial musical program, a plethora of supplies are needed. The youth programs need keyboards, computers, drums, flutes, instruments, dance uniforms, microphones, speakers, and radios. Songs are utilized throughout programing, because singing can bring strength. Haitians loves singing gospel, Compa and American music. Donating digital or other music helps also.
