Clean Hands for Haiti supports Haitian children by providing educational scholarships, helping them find access to health care, and giving them a safe space to study and learn.

Our story begins after the devastating earthquake in 2010 when A&M Sports Academy founders Ray Abellard and Andre Murray saw the overwhelming needs of children and their families in Ray's hometown of Port-au-Prince.

Each year, on behalf of A&M Sports Academy, Ray and Dre would send barrels of clothing, hygiene supplies, and other resources to Ray's community and families in the surrounding area. While visiting

Clean Hands for Haiti was inspired by an 11 year old little girl named Clerona, who would wake up in the early dawn to cook, clean, and do household chores while other kids her age were getting to go to school. In 2013, A&M Sports Academy provided an academic scholarship to her that included tuition, uniforms, and books.

Within the year, Clerona was one of the top students in her grade, and Ray and Dre saw the dramatic impact that having a scholarship could have. They provided 9 additional scholarships and Clean Hands for Haiti was born.
