COVID Impact on Reforestation Projects

Although Lambi Fund is continuing all our work on reforestation projects because trees are vital to the survival of agriculture projects that feed many Haitians, it is imperative that we address the impact of COVID-19 in rural Haiti.

We have a four-phased approach and will be talking about each phase in the upcoming reports:

1) Health Awareness and prevention training

a) Awareness - Radio spots, texts, trucks with bullhorn announcements

b) Small group trainings on methods to prevent the spread of COVID-19

2) Distribution of sanitary materials

3) Funding for food purchases during health crisis

4) Financial support for reforestation and continued support of planting trees after the third phase of the COVID-19 plan.

COVID Impact on Long-Term Rebuilding in Haiti

Lambi Fund is continuing all our re-building work because it is vital to the survival of many Haitians. Since Haiti has few health care networks and even less infrastructure,Lambi Fund is taking a proactive approach to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Lambi Fund needs face masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer for its interactions with community groups. Lambi Fund staff is providing training to each organization on ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus, such as the importance of washing hands and working in smaller groups. We are also producing mass communications such as radio spots to raise awareness among the rural areas.

One of the biggest changes is the re-formatting of Regional Trainings projected for 2020. In an effort to reduce exposure, we are doing small trainings of less than 30 people for each individual group, rather than large regional gatherings. This, of course, places more time demands on staff, who are already working at survival paces.
