Thank you. Your donations are accepted with much gratitude
A few times in our lives we remember exactly what we were doing when a terrible tragedy happens. January 12, 2010 will always be etched in my mind as a time of shock and heartbreak. The world's greatest natural disaster struck my homeland Haiti with a vengeance, killing by some estimates up to 300,000 people and leveling southern Haiti. The response from our supporters, people young and old, from all walks of life, was uplifting. We were able to do much with comparatively little.
Unfortunately as of now, it has been extremely disappointing that so little has been done in the country as a whole. Billions of pledged dollars have not yet been released and many of the large donors continue to withhold monies until they have the so-called perfect plan. This is unacceptable. After the earthquake 1,000,000 Haitians were in tents in and around Port-au-Prince. Today that number has reached 1,600,000. This is deplorable. The Haitian People's Support Project is working to get Haitians out of tents and into homes.
We believe Haiti's future lies in sustainable living projects springing up throughout the country with people in charge of their lives. Decentralization, education, farming, local industry and cooperatives offer the potential for dignity and change.
Please lend a hand, Mete Main, as we help people to help themselves.
