Bagay Dwol Haiti Relief Fund

The Bagay Dwol Haiti Relief Fund was created a month after the devastating January 12th, 2010 earthquake, and named after the Kreyol title of feature-length documentary, STRANGE THINGS. STRANGE THINGS (Bagay Dwol) is a recently completed film that documents the inspiring stories of several homeless street boys living in the northern Haitian city of Cap-Haiten.

According to UNICEF there were over 380,000-orphaned children prior to the earthquake, and now the growing number is estimated to be 1 million. Regine Zamor (Founder of the Bagay Dwol Haiti Relief Fund) has worked alongside filmmaker and director, Alexandria Hammond in translating STRANGE THINGS into English, co-producing the film project; serves as outreach manager, identifying local and sustainable street children and youth programs in Haiti, and advocating for the human right to public, free, and quality education in Haiti.

The mission of STRANGE THINGS is to raise awareness about Haiti’s abandoned youth problem, and shed light on the beauty and remarkable history of Haiti.  On January 14, 2010 Regine traveled to Haiti to assist in relief efforts in many of the dense, yet underserved areas in and around Port-au-Prince, and has now made Haiti her home. The Bagay Dwol Haiti Relief Fund will:

  • Facilitate community participation in the rebuilding of Haiti
  • Bridge the gap between organizations and local communities
  • Support local medical clinics
  • Provide funding to sustainable grassroots Haitian organizations
  • Support the livelihood, protection, safety, and human rights of Haitian children.

    I have worked with Regine in Haiti and have been impressed with her ability to make connections and get the job done in PAP

    Please support this dynamo of enthusiasm and integrity.

    Your donations will help people rather than pay overhead.
