A long-term response to the economic upheaval and resulting food crisis that COVID-19 is causing in Haiti
Haiti Partners’ COVID-19 Response
While healthcare is not integral to Haiti Partners’ mission, we are doing everything we can to help the students and families that we work with to fight COVID-19. From creating easily shared Haitian Creole digital COVID-19 prevention materials, to assembling and delivering prevention kits, to making and distributing masks, to provided much-needed funds to our Partner Schools so they can respond in the way best for them, we are using our resources and network to the best of our ability to fight COVID-19 in Haiti.
Our most recent endeavor is the Home Gardens project (“Jaden Lakay” in Haitian Creole): a long-term response to the economic upheaval and resulting food crisis that COVID-19 is causing in Haiti. This project provides the families of all students and staff at the Children’s Academy with the materials and technical support they need to plant and maintain their own permaculture home gardens. In doing so, 200 families (1400 people) will be empowered to sustainably grow their own healthy food far into the future.
We invite you to support this work as we both adapt to COVID-19 and stay true to our mission to help Haitians change Haiti through education. Thank you for keeping Haiti’s students and families close to your heart in these difficult times.
