Port-au-Prince Earthquake Relief & Rebuilding

by Project Esperanza
May 3, 2013

Signing off for now

Hello! First and foremost, thank you for your support of this project! Without your support, we wouldn´t have been able to conduct our research trips and giving out survival kits, built a house out of palm leaves at one of the tent cities, run a census of the tent city, and support a community organizer to live in the tent city for a number of months. 

We have to announce that this work is put on hold for the time being because of our inability to advance. We just face limits and need to work within our capacity of serving Haitians in the Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic area. We work with many Haitians in the Port-au-Prince area and build more and more connections each day. However, we see that new cannot realistically fund a larger scale project in the near future. Within the next few years, perhaps, but within this year, it is just outside of our capacity. So we will continue to build relationships and contacts and learn and envision, but will not act at this time. Thank you, again, for your support and we are signing off... for now.
