In early March 2010, following the devastating 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti in January, the LA Galaxy and the Galaxy Foundation made a humanitarian trip to Port-au-Prince, Haiti to distribute supplies, deliver soccer equipment and conduct soccer clinics. Former Galaxy player Tony Sanneh was invited to travel to Haiti along with Gloria King, Galaxy Director of Community Development and the Galaxy Foundation. After the visit, the Galaxy Foundation and The Sanneh Foundation partnered to form the Haitian Initiative, a joint project dedicated to providing aid, equipment and soccer-based youth programming to the children of Haiti during the rebuilding process. Today The Sanneh Foundation continues its commitment to help the children of Haiti. Through partnerships and collaboration The Sanneh Foundation heads up the Haitian Initiative serving the children of Haiti.
