Haiti is a mountainous nation in the Caribbean that shares a border with the Dominican Republic. Haiti is prone to droughts, floods, and hurricanes. The majority religion is Christianity, and over half of the population professes to be Catholic. Voodoo is also practiced by some as well. Unemployment is rampant throughout Haiti with little access to quality jobs. Families also struggle with alcoholism, malnutrition, and insufficient medical care. Because of the extreme poverty, parents struggle to pay for their children’s school fees and usually are not educated themselves.
