Lambi Fund staff and board members recently returned from a field visit with partner organizations in Northwest Haiti to assess how communities are doing post-quake. This was a wonderful opportunity to talk with local organizations about the earthquake’s impact on their communities and how local organizations responded.
By all accounts, Lambi Fund’s emergency assistance program focusing on food production and food security was a total success. In early Spring at the start of the planting season, Lambi Fund provided local farmers organizations with grants to expand crop production. Since over half a million earthquake survivors fled Port-au-Prince for the rural provinces, expanded food production in these communities was essential. The grants allowed farmers to purchase more seeds and new tools.
Farmers from Gwo Mon to Gwo Sab shared with Lambi Fund their success stories of fast growing cultivation within two months and how partner communities generated bountiful harvests of peas, vegetables, and corn for consumption and sale at local markets. Increasing food security is an important part of ensuring rapid recovery in Haiti. Continue to support farming communities like Gwo Mon in rural Haiti and allow farmers to continue to provide local and affordable food for Haiti. Mesi for all of your support- Lambi Fund couldn’t do this without you!
