Help for Haiti
Organized by: Kathleen Donovan Downey
As many of you may know, for the last several years I have traveled to Haiti on medical mission trips to assist the people of Duchity, Haiti. Duchity is a small town located in the mountains of the western portion of Haiti. They have been greatly affected by Hurricane Matthew and are in great need of assistance. I am reaching out to you, my family, friends, and others to assist in raising funds to support the relief efforts. I personally guarantee any funds raised on this site will go directly to those in need of water, food, and shelter. Cholera is a very real threat to those who do not have safe drinking water or sanitation systems. It is on the rise and will continue to rise due to this most recent disaster. Many of my friends and colleagues have asked how they can help and this will be of great assistance to those in need. One case of bottled water is approximately $12 US and is one of the greatest needs right now. If you are able to assist in any way, any amount will help. I thank you all for your kind words and prayers for my friends and all those in need in Haiti. I personally have the privilege of knowing and caring for these people and they have touched my life in the most profound way. It is through their faith in God and resilience that these beautiful people will survive. Thank you for anything you are able to contribute and please continue to pray for their welfare. God bless.....
