eiser Relief Inc. is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 corporation founded by Father
Bernard Reiser who has been involved with Haiti outreach programs
for over 13 years. Run entirely by volunteers, Reiser Relief is based
in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. The major goal of its mission is to help the
impoverished people of the Caribbean country of Haiti, the poorest country
in the Western Hemisphere.
The social and environmental problems are the greatest challenges the
people of Haiti are facing today. In the midst of these problems, we are
compelled to provide essential services to aid in day-to-day survival. The
services Reiser Relief provides include: fresh water, food centers, education,
and eldercare facilities. Many projects are in or near Cité Soleil; the suburb
of the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince. Reiser Relief provides assistance
focused on the basic necessities of life: Water, Food, and Education.
The number one cause for illness in Cité Soleil is the lack of clean water.
The desperately poor people cannot afford to purchase the water on their
own. Reiser Relief’s water delivery program obtains fresh water from deep
wells then trucks it to many neighborhoods in Cité Soleil. The local people
carry their life-saving water back to their homes in 5-gallon buckets. After
the devastating earthquake in January, 2010, the truck also began deliveries
