Jeane's recovery from economic impacts of COVID-19

Dear Friend of HAGN Girls,

It is with great gratitude and pleasure that I am sharing news on our "Give Haitian Girls a Choice to Safety from COVID-19" project.

Jeane[1] is a 21-year-old girl who lives in Miragoâne, in the town of Sodo. At the age of 18, she was unintentionally pregnant after having unprotected sex. Currently, she is a single mother of a 3-year-old.

However, a fire completely destroyed the house in which she lived.This lamentable situation forced Jeane to leave her home with her child and sister. They were hosted by a neighbour. In this distress situation compounded by Covid 19 health crisis, HAGN provided psychosocial and economic support to the girl. Jeane received hygiene products that could help her protect herself against the virus and a one-time cash voucher for economic recovery.

Today, thanks to this support, Jeanne earns her living by making detergent products such as cleaning products, dishwashers, sanitizers that currently meet the needs of the community.

COVID-19 has accentuated the humanitarian crisis in Haiti. The financial support gave our girls the resources to remain safe, protect them against gender-based violence and strengthen them and their families' well-being. Now Jeanne faces the vagaries of life with more serenity and able to develop her safety net.She encourages young girls in her locality to join safe space activities which provide capacity building for adolescent and young girls.

So, I would like to thank you very much to help these girls access recovery economic during this humanitarian crisis.

Other girls like Jeanne rely on your support to help them deal with emergencies. Help us spread the word to help collect the remaining funds. Please consider sharing with your friends, colleagues, and networks.


With my deepest appreciation

Maureen
