Since its inception in 2004, Haiti Emergency Relief Fund [HERF] has provided concrete aid to Haiti’s democratic movement as the people fight to survive the brutal coup against their democratically elected President Jean Bertrand Aristide and rebuild shattered development projects. HERF supports the long-run development of human rights, sustainable agriculture and economic justice in Haiti.
