Thank you to everyone who attended, participated and volunteered at 'Clowns for Haiti Fundraiser '23' two weeks ago on May 27th. It was a fun and creative day for us all. Your support means the world to us and the children of St Patrick's School in Haiti. We raised over €800. If you wish to continue to support us and help keep the school running, you can PM Róisín Anne Jenkinson and she will put you in contact with one of our team members to set up a direct bank transfer.

Ps. Our GoFundMe campaign isn't working atm, so apologies for any inconvenience. We will inform you when that is running properly again, so keep an eye on this page.

Hello. We’re Clowns for Haiti, An Irish Charity Helping Haitians Smile Again. Thank You For Stopping By. Don’t Be Shy. Tell Us Your Ideas. Help Us Raise Funds. Get Involved.

Haiti and Ireland; two islands with no land between them. Haiti nine million people, and Ireland five million people. There were 4,000 schools in Haiti, 3,640 of which were destroyed. The two Petes went as Clowns to Haiti after the earthquake to help. The Irish clowns made Haitians smile again.

Clowns for Haiti consists of seven great volunteers who love Haiti and have remained with the project since the very start. They are Lady Clowns Denise and Patricia, and Clowns Brian, Charles John, Don, and the two Pete’s. Many other friends and organisations have helped and supported us along the way.

Once rebuilt, a Haitian school will be twinned with an Irish school. Funds go to resourcing schools, linking children via performing arts.

Students and teachers will learn about and visit each other’s country. This long term project starts with Irish and Haitian students during their primary school years.

The Clowns are very grateful to each of our volunteers and their contribution over the years. By creating and running ‘FUN’raising Clown events in Ireland, we have helped build a beautiful primary school outside Port Au Prince. It is run by our brilliant Haitian friend Chery. Clown President for Life Pete and Charles John named the school ‘St Patricks on The Hill’. It has a green rooftop! It is a good news story! More great initiatives are on the way! Keep following us.
