2006 Annual Report

The Haitian Coalition of Philadelphia (HCP) has greatly participated in different programs to help Haitian kids in Philadelphia and Haiti.  Among the many programs, HCP cites

  • The “Haitian Night” at the Wachovia Center in collaboration with the 76 Sixers’ (Philadelphia basketball team) organization and started the “Backpack Program” at EFIP in collaboration with the French international School of Philadelphia during the Martin Luther King Day for kids in Haiti. These programs intended use was to promote the Haitian culture in the Philadelphia area as well as giving more exposure to the Haitian culture and history.

The rippling effects of events in Haiti from 2004 to 2006 were brutal then to bring back the positive image of Haiti around the world; HCP was instrumental in the selection of Mr. Samuel Dalembert (Haitian born basketball super star) by the Consul Corps Association in Philadelphia as the recipient of the 2006 Humanitarian Award.  More
