The Centre Haïtien de Recherche et d’Actions pour le développement (ChrAD) is a Haitian nonprofit organization dedicated the promotion of research and local community development, run by the historian Jean Fritzner Etienne, one of Haiti’s leading scholars of the colonial and revolutionary periods and an authority on the Catholic Church in Saint-Domingue/Haiti. CHrAD is raising money to support the building of an amusement park for children in Gressier (located south of the capital of Port-au-Prince) who have been traumatized by gang warfare in the Haitian capital and the permanent political unrest in the country. The initial fundraising campaign is being hosted by the Global Giving Accelerator. If the campaign can raise $5,000 by June 26, 11:59pm, it will receive a permanent place on the Global Giving website which will greatly facilitate the project’s long-term fundraising prospects. Please consider giving in any amount you can to support this worthy cause: the link to make a donation is here.
