concerned about how safe it would be for my 19 year old daughter ( blond hair, blue eyed beauty) to spend the summer on a mission trip with her university

Not sure if you've read your own government's travel advisories for Haiti.
Here's the Canadian one that provides suggestions on what you should do - should you insist on going there.

If she is going with a group and exercises the normal precautions she should be alright. And prayer always helps! Reply to this
