BENEFITING: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
ORGANIZER: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
First and foremost, welcome to my fundraiser! I am thrilled to have piqued your interest, and thank you sincerely for allowing me to count on your support as I work to accomplish my long awaited goal of conquering a Marathon! This November, I will be running the NYC Marathon on behalf of J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
Since 2010, following the devastating earthquake which unleashed a wave of inconceivable chaos upon the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, this wonderful organization has been actively fighting to restore balance to the Delmas area of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Having lived and worked in Haiti for almost 2 years, I know firsthand the successful impact J/P HRO has had within the surrounding community. Their efforts have addressed not only the immediate relief necessary to sustain tens of thousands of displaced persons, but overcome obstacles such as severe economic instabilities and complex political interests while effectively preserving local community identities, developing strategy and coordination plans, and aligning the needs of the residents of Delmas with targeted programming. Your contribution to my fundraising campaign will go directly towards their initiatives in the following areas:
Medical Care: Community Health, Women's Health, Dental Care, Psycho-Social Interventions, and improvement of healthcare facilities.
Community Development: Educational Programs, Livelihoods Training, and the Campus for Innovation & Skills Development.
Reforestation, Tent Camp Management (including Protection) and Relocation Services, as well as Engineering & Construction (including Post-Earthquake Rubble Removal and Community Engagement & Training).
You can read more about this world class organization and the work they are undertaking, by visiting jphro.org and spreading the word regarding their phenomenal efforts in restoring opportunity to the Haitian people.
Once again, thank you for visiting and please consider making a contribution- every dollar counts!
