Rev. Bernard Reiser founded Reiser Relief Inc to assist the people of Cité Soleil a suburb within Port-au-Prince the capital city of Haiti and along with Lespinasse/Donte Haiti and Titanyen, Haiti.

It all stared after a 1996 unforgettable trip when Reiser felt a special call to initiate programs to help the people of the Caribbean country of Haiti. The primary work and ministry of this fund is for the basic human necessities.

Projects in Haiti include the building of a center for abandoned women and mothers who have no place to go and located in the mountains outside Port-au-Prince and houses 30 women at one time. Other fund-raising efforts have been able to provide support clinics and hospitals in Cité Soleil, as well as build classrooms for schools, a medical and community center and a sanitary block for sewage.
