Western Hemisphere. The people in Haiti face
horrendous daily struggles. Statistics tell the
story of their challenges. Average life expectancy
is the worse in the world at 49 years of age. Too

and water borne disease. The country is the most
water-deprived in the world. Haiti is third to

exceeds 70%. The average annual wage is only $500.
Yet, even with these hardships, when visiting this
country, you will be forever touched by the beauty,
kindness, love and friendliness of the Haitian
OSL is grateful to our many benefactors who make it

helping the Haitian people have an improved quality
of life and long-term, sustainable results.
