In 2010, the island nation of Haiti suffered a devastating earthquake. Hundreds of thousands of Haitians were killed and millions more were directly affected by this tragic event. Christian groups from all across America have since put their efforts towards alleviating Haitian suffering through both monetary donations and mission trips. These groups need financial support to do their noble work, and with Rada Cutlery, they can get all the funds they need!
About Mission Trips to Haiti
The standard of living in Haiti could be a shock to many from the United States. Over half of Haiti’s population is said to live in abject poverty. A lack of staples such as clean water, food, medical treatment, and education is pervasive all across Haiti.
The good done by mission trips and charitable organizations that visit Haiti cannot be overstated. Mission trips provide food, and clean water, offer medical treatment to the sick and infirm, present skilled labor and funds for construction and repair projects, and more. Mission trips to Haiti don’t just help out, but actually save lives and make a profound impact on thousands.
Climb for Haiti
One group dedicated to helping the people of Haiti is Climb for Haiti. Its founders are Matt and Tricia Spading, who started the organization to empower Haitians to better their circumstances.
“We formed our nonprofit to work alongside Haitians who had formed their own organizations,” Tricia said, noting that her group works closely with Haitian organizations to support their efforts. “We say that the ‘b’ in Climb for Haiti stands for ‘believe in those we are serving.'”
The Climb for Haiti website hosts an online Rada sales option. This allows supporters to easily purchase Rada products, with the profits going directly to Climb for Haiti.
Tricia has done more than fundraise with Rada, though. She has also brought Rada knives to Haiti for use by local cooks.
“I brought some Rada knives to Kenold, the mission house cook,” she said. “He loved the knives! They’re sharp and don’t rust in the humid Haitian heat.”

In order for mission trips and charities to do their good work, precious funds are needed as expenses add up.

Habitat for Humanity in Haiti
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building “simple, decent, and affordable” housing for those in need. Habitat volunteers have constructed quality housing for people on six continents, bettering lives in America and abroad.
Habitat for Humanity homes can be found across Haiti. Over 55,000 Haitian families have benefited from Habitat’s efforts, including many through the organization’s earthquake recovery program. A Rada Cutlery fundraiser is a great way to raise money for a Habitat group.
