The mission of Maha-Lilo is:

to improve the health and well-being of young people in Jeremie and the rural surroundings.

Maha-Lilo was formed in February, 2010, in the aftermath of the earthquake that destroyed much of Port au Prince. Those not physically harmed by the earthquake, Jeremie also felt many of the effects. Much of the aid that was flowing into Haiti was not reaching the Maha-Lilo’s founders’ friends of family. In response, the founders raised funds but also realized that the rebuilding efforts will carry on for many years. In addition, the response would have to involve more than just immediate relief of food, water, and shelter. Maha-Lilo was formed to aid in those efforts.

Maha-Lilo is currently seeking non-profit 501(c)3 status.
