Fundraising for Child of Haiti

Child of Haiti is 100% reliant on income raised through fundraising to complete our building projects. Each year we travel to Haiti to complete reconstruction projects on local schools/orphanages. In 2016, Child of Haiti volunteers traveled to Haiti with us to kit out the second building for the Sisters of St. Joseph and the St. Damien Leprosy Clinic for their activities. In 2017, Child of Haiti volunteers once again made the journey to Haiti and we reconstructed a rundown school and installed flushing toilets (This is now the first school with flushing toilets in Gonaives). Our volunteers all pay their own way to and from Haiti and cover their own​ expenses.​ If you are interested in becoming a COH volunteer and travelling to Haiti with us in 2018 we’d love to hear from you.

Email us at and we’ll get back to you asap to explain how you can get involved and begin to raise the funds required to take part in our projects.

24 Hour Static Cycle – Oct 2016

COH Volunteer Michael Dunne raised money for his trip with us in 2016 by riding a stationary bike for 24hrs straight. The event took place at the Chambers pub in Mullingar and was a huge success with plenty of people helping out.
