Haiti makes up the western one-third of the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean. The eastern two-thirds of the island is the Dominican Republic.

    Haiti is one of most densely populated yet poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Estimates suggest that 80% of the population live on or below the poverty line.

    As well as supporting seasonal Islamic projects, Ummah Welfare Trust funds a medical clinic in Miragoane that provides free treatment and medicines to poor families.
