Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere with a population of over 10 million and 80% live in poverty. Eight out of every 100 children die before they reach their 5th birthday. There are more than 420,000 orphans in Haiti. School fees in Haiti are prohibitively expensive, therefore the literacy rate in Haiti is just 50%. Haiti Gift Catalog
