Colorado Haiti Project has been committed to the Petit Trou de Nippes community in Haiti for more than 25 years. The damage from Hurricane Matthew has been devastating: hundreds of structures are destroyed, the crops are ruined and nearly all livestock was lost. We are now collecting donations and mobilizing our partnerships and resources to get immediate food, water and medical aid into the region, and have a long-term commitment to rebuilding this severely damaged region in the days to come.
The community we serve in Haiti has been nearly destroyed by Hurricane Matthew. Thousands of people have lost their homes, and everything they owned. There's currently no source of clean water, and they are working through the last of the salvaged food while they await aid. The roads into the region have been destroyed, making delivery of aid a challenge. The award-winning school and campus we've built has sustained extensive damage as well, and will need significant reparation.
We are in an immediate response mode, working with our representatives and partners within Haiti to source food, water, clothing and medical supplies for the days ahead. Long-term, hundreds of people will need economic support as they work to rebuild their homes, replace livestock and resow their staple food crops. Our award-winning school and campus will need to be structurally assessed and rebuilt in the months ahead. Your donations will work toward each of these priority needs.
Rebuilding this region will be a daunting challenge, but it is not an insurmountable one. Your donation goes directly toward the economic and partnership-based support of hundreds of people in rural Haiti. It will take time, but we are committed to helping our brothers and sisters in Haiti rebuild their homes, their livestock, their crops, and their lives. Long-term goals will focus on securing our 12 clean water wells, agriculture and livestock to address food security and economic livelihood.
