Below you will find a wishlist of all of the Biltmore Marathon runners that are fundraising to support Consider Haiti. Our goal is for each runner to raise $2000 to go directly to support Consider Haiti. Who are we?
Consider Haiti is a non‐profit organization based in Asheville, North Carolina. It has one objective – to promote the health and welfare of children in Haiti. Our goal:
In furtherance of its goal, Consider Haiti is concentrating its efforts on four programs:Medical Care Program
- Teams of volunteers that include medical personnel provide week‐long clinics for Haitian children.Community Health Agent Program
- Using local community health agents, children suffering from severe malnutrition are enrolled in a short‐term program to rehabilitate their bodies.Sustainable Nutrition Program
- This program involves the distribution of goats, rabbits and other agricultural products to impoverished families along with instructions on how to use these resources to build sustainable sources of food and income.Clean Water Program
- Most Haitians lack access to clean water, and as a result the contaminated water they are forced to drink or use for food preparation leads to widespread acute and chronic illnesses and is a major cause of death and misery. To combat this problem, Consider Haiti provides water filters effective in removing suspended solids and most pathogens to each family with a child enrolled in the Community Health Agent Program.
