1 Dollar Poverty - Living in Haiti on $1 per day for 28 days

In February 2010, Matthew and Andrew Jones founded Poverty Resolutions with the hope of helping those most affected by the devastating earthquake that had struck Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In May, they set out with two of their friends, Chris Matticola and Jon Rose, to live alongside earthquake refugees in Port-au-Prince for 28 days.  They committed to spend just $1 per day per person on food, supplies and drinking water in order to better understand the plight of the Haitian people and learn how best to help. Although they came because of the earthquake, they quickly realized that poverty and a lack of jobs, money, and infrastructure were much greater problems. We invite you to share in their story, and learn with us what life is like for the 1.4 billion people living in extreme poverty.
