In 2004, the members of Audio Adrenaline founded the Hands & Feet Project. Inspired by fan reaction to the band’s song “Hands and Feet,” HAF is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing long-term, family-style care for orphaned and abandoned children with the love of Christ. They strive to raise a generation of orphaned children who will grow up to reach their God- given potential, while empowering first world citizens to partner with them in service at home and abroad.
The organization broke ground on their first Children’s village in Cyvadier, a small town on the Southern coast near Jacmel, and began their journey of serving the forgotten children of the impoverished Caribbean nation. Currently tending to over 70 children in Cyvadier, a second village opened in Grand Goave in 2008 and is caring for 30 children.
