As we near the end of the year we want to thank you for your ongoing support of J/P HRO. This year has been one where we strengthened current programs and provided Hurricane Matthew emergency relief for Haiti. Because of your commitment to our work and to the people of Haiti, we continue to provide humanitarian relief as well as job opportunities across local communities where livelihoods were destroyed.

There are only a few days left to make a 2016 donation so that we can continue our work in the new year.

Almost three months ago, category 4 Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti, affecting 2.1 million people. J/P HRO went back to its roots and immediately began emergency response efforts to reduce the impact of this disaster. In the immediate aftermath of the storm our mobile clinics provided services to 2,405 people; 30% of these patients have been children. Thanks to you we were able to remove rubble, clear roads, distribute food and clean water.

To date we have removed 64,548 m3 of rubble, cleared and repaired 34.51 km of road, and created 22.72 km of new road access. Our response programs provide cash for work opportunities in rubble removal across the Sud and Grand-Anse regions, ensuring that local communities complete the work being done to rebuild Haiti.

There are a couple ways that you can help as we enter this new year.

We would love to hear more about your motivation to support J/P HRO. Consider writing and sharing a short note answering the question, what inspires you to give? Tell the story of what makes J/P HRO meaningful to you. Take this time to reflect upon your commitment to our work.

Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $5, $10, or even $25 to provide much needed resources to local Haitian communities? Make a small end of the year donation so that we can continue our work into 2017.

We remain humbled by your generosity and we look forward to updating you on our progress next year!

“My wish for the children [of Haiti] is for them to succeed. I would like the children I teach to be useful to themselves, their families, and society. From the training, they receive at school, the children become agents of development in their community by sharing with others what they have been taught.” - Emmanuella

This month we are excited to update you on a number of developments that happened during November. But first, ‘Orange is the New Black’ actress and J/P HRO Ambassador, Vicky Jeudy, shares her experience as a Haitian American. Vicky visited Haiti with our team this past Spring to see the work we have done in Delmas 32. Visiting the country was a powerful experience for Vicky and we are so grateful to have her support.

“Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.”

These are the words that Mr. Henry Timms spoke when he pitched his idea to spread generosity around the world. And now more than ever, the world’s eyes are on Haiti.

J/P HRO continues to respond to Hurricane Matthew with short-term relief while focusing on long-term solutions to the systemic issues of extreme poverty, deforestation, and rapid urbanization. Our primary response and relief efforts are housing repairs for those displaced, food and water distribution for those who need it, mobile clinics to provide medical care, and rubble removal across the affected regions.

Visit our website to donate and consider giving a small gift today so that we may continue this work into the new year and help Haiti rise. Every dollar makes a difference.

J/P HRO works to integrate viable solutions to systemic problems of extreme poverty, deforestation, and rapid urbanization. Our teams assessed hundreds of houses in Sainte-Hélène to determine the extent of the damage and to evaluate necessary repairs. Of those homes that were more than 50% destroyed, the majority had damage to their roofs, as well as, damage to their walls.

Finding adequate shelters is becoming increasingly urgent, especially for the tens of thousands of people living in temporary housing. We will continue to respond to disasters while working on long-term solutions to the housing crisis facing victims of Hurricane Matthew.

As our world continues to globalize and we become more interconnected, actions happening in one part of the world, have alarming effect in another. Someone starts their car in the West and climate change displaces millions in the Caribbean.

On January 12th, 2010 a 7.0 magnitude earthquake wrought  destruction across Haiti. On October 4th, 2016 Hurricane Matthew ravaged the South Western coast of the country, displacing 75% of the region, and spawning a new humanitarian crisis as cholera once again rages. Alberto de Diego, one of our 2010 J/P HRO volunteers, and his dad have decided to respond once again.

In two weeks they will climb Aconcagua Mountain, Argentina to raise awareness for this crisis. Haiti, known as the country of mountains beyond mountains, is a land contrasted by natural beauty and extreme poverty. What is most inspiring about the Haitian people is their will to never give up. The will to keep climbing, keep striving for a better life. His journey highlights this interconnectedness of our global humanity. 

Show your support by fundraising for J/P Haitian Relief Organization, sharing Alberto's campaign, and  donating here: https://www.crowdrise.com/summit-for-haiti

This past week the Interim President of Haiti, Jocelerme Privert and J/P HRO CEO, Ann Lee participated in an interview with Samantha Fenwick of BBC Radio 5 live.

"‘What we're seeing is a lot of hunger. Haiti has experienced three years of drought before the hurricane so there were already high levels of malnutrition.

‘Now tens of thousands of acres of crop land and millions of fruit trees have been destroyed,’ J/P HRO's chief executive Ann Lee said.”
