The Foundation for the Development of the South of Haiti (FDSH) is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2008 after the severe food crisis hit Haiti that year. The main goal at the time was to help the town of Roche a Bateau rebuild its economic resources. Still, FDSH’s focus grew exponentially to target necessities inherent to a sustainable society, and evolving life for the population. The mission is to comprehensively revamp the health and educational systems in the South of Haiti by providing enhanced medical services and infrastructure support to the communities while expanding to other towns one at a time. In 2011, FDSH was granted 501.3(c) status, and that facilitated it to raise more funds in assisting a more significant number of affected neighborhoods.
