Reiser Relief Inc.
Bringing Hope To Haiti
Reiser Relief Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation founded by Father Bernard Reiser who has been involved with Haiti outreach programs for over 13 years. Run entirely by volunteers, Reiser Relief is based in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. The major goal of its mission is to help the impoverished people of the Caribbean country of Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
The social and environmental problems are the greatest challenges the people of Haiti are facing today. In the midst of these problems, we are compelled to provide the essential services to aid in day-to-day survival. The services Reiser Relief provides include: fresh water, food centers, education, and eldercare facilities. Many outreach projects are in or near Cité Soleil; the suburb of the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince. Reiser Relief provides assistance to Haiti focused on the basic necessities of life: Food, Water, Education, and Building Facilities.
With your help, Reiser Relief can continue to save the lives of these extremely impoverished people! We live among abundance, the Haitians live in extreme poverty. They await your generous response and we pray for God’s abundant blessings upon you. With deep gratitude, we thank you for helping us to "Keep the Wheel Turning!" Together, we make a difference in touching the lives of thousands of people!
Food, Water, Education, Building
Reiser Relief Inc. was formed by Father Bernard Reiser, a Catholic priest who has devoted his life to serving the many needs of others. Since its beginning, Reiser Relief has helped to bestow new hope for many hundreds of God's needy people through the generosity of a great number of people.
Shipments of Food Packets Feeding the Hungry in Haiti
Reiser Relief sends cargo shipping containers filled with meal packets. Transportation cost per container is around $10,000. These food packets are assembled by volunteers in the U.S. and donated by the nonprofit organization Feed My Starving Children. For many children, the daily meal at school is the only one they will receive. This food is distributed in various parts of Haiti: Lespinasse, Cité Soleil, Leogonne, Jacmel, and Titanyen.
Cité Soleil & Port-Au-Prince, Haiti
Yearly delivery of over 4 million gallons of clean water to the poor in the slum of Cité Soleil. Delivering four 3,500 gallon loads of water, 6 days a week, 52 weeks per year to thousands of people. That is the equivalent of 800,000 five gallon buckets of water each year. Funds support local Haiti driver salaries, fuel and maintenance.
Cite Soleil, Haiti
Funds are for teachers salaries so that school fees can be low enough to allow even the poorest families to send their children to school. We have also constructed classrooms, built school benches and given assistance for school uniforms, school and medical supplies, food and clean water. 400+ children attend school.

Help build a village from the ground up. Reiser Relief assisted with Healing Haiti in purchasing 16 acres of land to build Grace Village. The estimated construction cost is $236,500 for the first building phase to include two orphanage dormitories, a feeding center, a 21,000 gallon cistern, water tower and a septic tank. The orphanage is for handicapped, deaf, abandoned, and orphaned children living in severe poverty.

"He will wipe away all tears from their eyes;
there will be no more death, no more mourning or sadness. The world of the past has gone."
Almighty Father in heaven, surround the people of Haiti with Thy Divine Providence.
Strengthen them in their trials, provide for their needs. May they join their sufferings to those of Jesus, God’s Son, as they walk through the rubble of the January earthquake. May they realize that they are accompanying Jesus on the road to crucifixion.
May the Joys of Easter unfold in their hearts, and encourage them to persevere to heaven’s kingdom. Amen
