Challenge

On October 6, a magnitude 5.9 earthquake hit north Haiti leaving many homeless and with destroyed livelihoods. The urgent need is food and water. Another need is rebuilding and/or fixing the canals and mills that transform grains. The broken canals will prevent water from reaching fields and farmers may miss the December planting season. Also, the destroyed mills will limit trade. They will be unable to provide food to their families or communities that depend on low priced local crops.

Solution

Lambi Fund will provide assistance with food and water to partners that are in immediate need. Also, Lambi Fund will provide money and assistance to repair canals and cisterns so that farmers do not miss the planting season in December. The mills will be replaced or repaired so that partners can transform grains to sell in markets so as to regain their livelihoods.

Long-Term Impact

Addressing these issues will prevent mass starvation in north Haiti. Rural communities depend on the land for substance. Food and water in the short term will provide relief but for partners to rebuild and begin planting, they need assistance to clean, repair, and/or replace canals, mills, cisterns that are needed to farm and trade. Without these items fixed then partners will be unable to become self-sufficient or provide needed food to their communities and local markets.
