Providing aid in Haiti is often challenging. Delivering goods in the country can be dangerous. Although we currently have no American staff in Haiti, we are working through trusted national staff and contacts to research needs and help where we can.
Soon after the flooding, we provided emergency supplies like food, water, and hygiene items. Work-for-Wages teams, organized by CAM to give Haitians the opportunity to earn an income, are now working to muck out flooded houses. In the heavily flooded area of Leogane, we plan to do a rebuilding project. We hope to hire local Haitians, giving them a source of income, to build sturdy, two-room houses. The average cost per home is $6,000, and our goal is to build 50 homes. If you would like to help with these rebuilding efforts, your support will be a blessing.
