Artists for Peace and Justice

Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) is a non-profit organization founded by Paul Haggis and friends in 2009 that addresses issues of peace, social justice and poverty around the world. APJ's immediate goal is to serve children and their families in the poorest communities in Haiti by supporting the programs of Father Rick Frechette in education, health and dignity.
 
In October 2010, APJ opened the Academy for Peace and Justice, the first free secondary school serving the very poor in Port-au-Prince. Each student at the Academy for Peace and Justice receives a full scholarship, including tuition, uniforms, nutritious meals, and access medical care. At full enrollment, the Academy for Peace and Justice will provide a high-quality education to approximately 3,000 students every year.
 
APJ also supports the St. Luc Family Hospital, which provides free medical care to the poorest and most vulnerable people in Port-au-Prince. The services provided by the hospital include a surgery facility, a rehabilitation unit and Cholera Center. With APJ's support, the Cholera Center was constructed just 36 hours after the epidemic hit and has treated 20,000 patients to date, 50% of whom would have died without immediate treatment.
 
Artists for Peace and Justice donates 100% of public donations directly to its programs in Haiti.
