COVID-19 really threw us for a loop and slowed things down tremendously. While the world was able to pause and quarantine, our partners in rural Haiti had no choice but to push through it all and continue working.
We were able to provide over 2,500 face masks to organization members along with the basic understanding of how the disease is spread and what to do to help prevent it.This provided a level of peace that made the worry easier to deal with.
Food insecurity continues to be a growing problem in Haiti. Many of our partners are still recovering from the destruction caused by hurricane Matthew a couple of years ago. Recently, 10 of our partner organizations in Kavayon successfully rebuilt their gardens that were wiped out by the hurricane. The members were also able to replace the goat(s) that they had lost, reignite their merchant activities, process grains for storage and plant more than 200,000 trees that are actually growing in the area.
Although they've been doing well, there is still a lot of assistance that is needed. In each of these projects, Lambi has a set a goal to boost AgriculturalCredit, Grain Storage and Grain Transformation so that together we can continue to help curve the impending hunger.
