Three years ago an unimaginably severe earthquake struck Haiti, only a few hundred miles from us, killing 300 000 people in the destruction of Port au Prince.
We’ve been steadily growing for three years now – step by step, dollar by dollar! After aiding the refugee camps & three established charities from our first event, 100% for Haiti rebuilt a small primary school near Petit Gouave. Since then our school, IMECT, has run smoothly and well with more children every semester – teachers’ salaries are paid by our efforts, the children’s lunches are cooked and served free of charge, the school now has toilets, a water-tank, improved flood drainage, and we have helped improve health in the local area with anti-cholera training, disinfection, and first aid treatment.
It’s almost our 3rd Anniversary – and we’d like to continue funding the school AND build a concrete community kitchen there – to feed the children in the mornings, act as a facility for processing the agricultural produce of the villagers after school hours, and increase local women’s incomes. PLEASE HELP US MAKE THIS COMMITMENT!
We had a sucessful art sale that will pay our school teachers’ and staffs’ salaries throughout 2013! The lunch program is also funded. But we need the same amount again to begin the kitchen building…
