Just six months ago, January's devastating earthquake hit Haiti. Since then, the Lambi Fund of Haiti has been working relentlessly with local farmers’ organizations throughout rural Haiti to expand local crop production, improve farming technology and to provide farmers with the credit, seeds and tools they need to succeed. Strengthening Haiti’s agriculture sector will be a key component in the effective recovery of Haiti. Increased food production will provide valuable incomes for farmers, while providing local and affordable sources of food to Haitians.
Thanks to your support, these efforts continue to yield results. Lambi Fund just completed the construction of a community grain mill in Southwest Haiti. Members of ODRO (Organization for the Development of Robert) provided labor and community resources to realize the mill’s completion. Just days ago, the motor for the grain mill arrived and was installed in the newly constructed grain mill. Now, members of the ODRO community no longer need to walk 2-3 hours to the nearest grain mill. Haitian farmers can enjoy the increased productivity and higher quality of milled grains right in their village.
Help more sustainable agriculture projects like these become a reality, and continue your support today.
