Like everyone living in Haiti, the farmers of ROJETAT have been unduly affected by the January's earthquake. An influx of earthquake survivors from Port-au-Prince streamed into their community in the days that followed. Virtually overnight, the farmers of ROJETAT had twice as many people to feed and care for as survivors sought refuge with friends and family.
The Lambi Fund of Haiti provided ROJETAT with emergency earthquake grants to help organization members provide relief for earthquake survivors. These grants helped Haitians purchase life essentials like food, water, clothing, medical supplies and shelter.
In addition, Lambi Fund provided farmers with emergency agriculture grants to increase crop production. Farmers of ROJETAT were able to purchase more seeds and tools at the start of Haiti's planting season. These improved inputs along with continued training on organic and sustainable farming methods will allow members of ROJETAT to significantly increase their crop yields.
Continue to support the farmers of ROJETAT as they work provide affordable, local food and to increase food security in Haiti.
