Respire Haiti was founded in 2011 by Megan Boudreaux in Gressier, Haiti. In January of 2011 a feeding program was started on Bellevue Mountain. Hundreds of children came to the mountain to be fed a plate of hot food every Saturday afternoon, this Saturday Feeding Program still happens today. From the feeding program sprouted the school and the medical clinic followed soon after by our many community and sports programs.
Respire Haiti now employs over 130 Haitians the majority of whom are from Gressier. We have a total of 14 buildings throughout Respire Haiti’s land, with construction currently in progress on our 15 th building (our Therapy Center). In the following document, our programs are outlined to give an overview of Respire Haiti’s mission in our community.
