Celebrating 25 years of the Haiti Support Group
Launched at the Houses of Parliament in June 1992, for two and a half decades we have collaborated with the poor majority in Haiti, reflecting and amplifying the views of grassroots, popular, participatory groups on the ground.

Launch of the Haiti Briefing Archive
To celebrate our anniversary, we have launched the Haiti Briefing Archive, our main publication that has provided our members, Haiti watchers and decision-makers with analysis of Haiti’s development issues, reflected through the voices of popular organisations on the ground.
You can now download over 81 past editions of the Haiti Briefing containing 25 years of groundbreaking reporting on key themes including:
Cholera & the UN, Development Policy & NGOs, Displacement & Land Reform, Elections & Politics in Haiti, Haitian Civil Society and Human Rights, Haitian History, Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security, Vodou & Religion and others.
We have also set up a GoFundMe page for donations to our group and are planning to reach a target of £2500 to help raise money for our work.
Any donation, no matter how small, will help us us with the running costs of our small but very active organisation.
All help we receive will ensure that our team of Haiti watchers, grassroots activists, campaigners, members of the Haitian Diaspora, legal experts, journalists, academics and development specialists can continue to amplify the voices of Haitian civil society to everyone and anyone that will listen.
