BENEFITING: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2016
Everyday People is partnering with J/P Haitian Relief Organization to bring awareness to the Hurricane Matthew relief efforts in Haiti. We're pledging all of the proceeds of our upcoming all night DANCE PARTY "Kompassion - A Fundraiser For Haiti" at Casablanca (300 Malcolm X Blvd, Brooklyn) on 10/15/16 and thereafter we'll continue to collect donations via this Crowdrise fundraiser. There will be a $20 MINIMUM DONATION at the door of the event, however, if you donate at least $20 here on Crowdrise and present you're receipt and photo ID at Casablanca you can bypass the fee at the door.
Please visit www.jphro.org for more details and below for some information about J/P HRO's plan for the funds we collect.... - 1,410,907 people are in need of immediate humanitarian assistance. - Over 61,000 have been relocated to emergency shelters. - 95% of homes reportedly destroyed in coastal areas of the South. - Up to 100% of lost harvest has been reported in the south. - 70 confirmed cases of Cholera. - The death toll is over 1,000 people as a result of Hurricane Matthew We need your help. J/P HRO has begun emergency response in the southwest cities of Les Cayes and Jeremie. We have the first mobile medical clinic operating in the area and are already seeing hundreds of patients every day. In addition, our heavy machinery teams have cleared debris from critical roads that block access for further assistance. Our team is now planning to do full assessments and expect programming in Water, Sanitation, and Shelter, cholera prevention, and treatment in the area. None of this is possible without your support. Please also remember that this hurricane is not the real crisis. The real emergencies here are poverty, deforestation and rapid urbanization which amplify the damage done during natural disasters like Hurricane Matthew. This is the work J/P HRO will continue to do day after day, even after the cameras turn elsewhere and the emergency response organizations clear out. We need your help to operate sustainably. Please donate now.
