In early October, Hurricane Matthew tore through the Caribbean islands, decimating regions of Haiti, Cuba and the Bahamas and leaving in its wake lost and shattered lives. Summit has a special affinity to the Caribbean and its inhabitants, as they have always been gracious hosts of Summit at Sea. This year , we want to help provide relief for our Caribbean neighbors. We are promoting the work of two great organizations who are doing on-the-ground relief and humanitarian aid right now and ensuring that people can get through the devastation and begin to rebuild their lives. Team Rubicon Global provides veterans around the world with opportunities to serve others in the wake of disasters. 3 to 5 Days is a non-profit organization that is focused on providing sustainable solutions for clean water to areas in need.
Please support the Summit at Sea Hurricane Matthew Relief fund and help create the calm after the storm.
Team Rubicon Global provides veterans around the world with opportunities to serve others in the wake of disasters. Team Rubicon was started after the 2010 Haiti Earthquake and TR Global volunteer veterans are back on the ground clearing debris, setting up shelters and delivering supplies. TR and TRG brings together US and global military veterans, who are well-equipped to work in complex situations and who often benefit from the comraderie and purpose of their humanitarians missions.
3 TO 5 DAYS is a non-profit organization that is focused on providing sustainable solutions for clean water to areas in need. In both Haiti and The Bahamas, the water is dangerously contaminated and there are outbreaks of cholera and other waterborne illness - adding to the misery of decimated homes and lives. 3 to 5 Days restores local wells and delivers new, locally-made water filters that can provide immediate clean water for 100 people each.
"Once again a major natural disaster has struck Haiti. The situation is dire and we need all the help we can get. Water will be one of the most important supplies. 3 to 5 Days provides solutions that will save lives." - Laurent Lamothe, Former Prime Minister of Haiti and Summit at Sea 2016 Speaker
