The Catholic Mirror
Read about The Haiti Plunge in the Spring 2014 issue of The Catholic Mirror, the magazine of the Diocese of Springfield, MA.
The Haiti Plunge Inc. sends eight teams to Haiti annually. Seventy percent of every team are students, who are responsible for raising all the funds necessary to participate. They are assisted by Haiti Plunge staff, medical personnel and various professionals or skilled workers who will teach the population.
Haiti Plunge Inc. takes every precaution for team safety. When the team lands in Haiti, they are met by the Haitian staff at the airport and are transported by the organization’s vehicles directly to their residence in the mountains. Access to medical care, secure shelter and protected food and water supply are provided.
