The Summerside WE Squad will be selling Raffiki bracelets during Education week (May 1 - 5) in an effort to raise $250, giving 5 mothers in Haiti health care workshops.
Haitians are plagued by poor nutrition, water quality, and sanitation facilities. To make things worse, a dire shortage of medical staff makes access to health services difficult or impossible for many people, especially those living in rural communities. According to the World Health Organization, diarrhea, HIV/AIDS, meningitis, and respiratory infections are the most common causes of death in Haiti. We help in our partner communities by providing:
- Delivery and distribution of medical equipment and supplies
- Health education and training
- Community radio program on health
- Playgrounds to promote exercise
