The Coronavirus pandemic continues to scar people across Haiti physically, mentally, emotionally and financially. We remain grateful that the death toll in Haiti has not hit the astronomical numbers that we've seen around the world, but financially it has impacted in ways that we could not have anticipated. Farmers left with harvests that could not be sold due to quarantine orders, land that could not be planted on due to lack of financing or access to supplies, families that could not be fed due to lack of financial means. The ripple effect of this pandemic continues to stun many.
This third phase of our COVID-19 response allowed us to distribute an addtional 2,500 masks to organization members throughout the Artibonite, South and Northwest regions as well as materials which enabled them jumpsrat their delayed planting seasons. Additional hand soap, disinfectant and buckets were also distributed to assist our partners in keeping their families and communities safe.
We were able to embark on the support phase which assists farmers in acquiring the materials necessary to begin planting production. This started with 14 organizations (7 in the South, 7 in the Artibonite). Within those organizations, 350 farmers were be able to participate and receive this support. Planting activities have already started with cultures that will not take long (3-4 months tops) to harvest.
We anticipate a plentiful harvest for these farmers as we continue to reach more. It is impossible without your ongoing support!
