"what would you say to a crowd of 90,000 people? Can we improve the human condition?"I AM NOT ASKING FOR YOUR MONEY
, just read on and it will make sense
I'm amazed that there are so many charities on here but then that's what the first person mentioned. I have been living/running a charity for the last 18 months.
We run a charity in Haiti dedicated to helping people made homeless in the earthquake last year. I ask you only to take a look and decide for yourselves. Add me to a circle and get daily updates about how every $ donated goes to buy things to help Haitians rebuild there lives.But that was last year
Yes, but imagine 1,500,000 people losing their house in a day, how long will it take to rebuild? I am writing this sat in Leogane (the closest city to the epicenter) and I can tell you that the works not done but the funding is. www.SASHaiti.org
We arrived in Haiti in the weeks following the quake, we are a group of volunteers who work for free with Haitians to rehouse and rebuild some of the rural areas close to the epicenter.
100% of donated money is spent in Haiti (our office in the UK is privately funded). The money is spent on essential items that are needed;to restart education, like schools, desks and teaching materials.to give people living in tents or tarp shacks a roof over their headsto give people the information and items needed to prevent cholera
We also help to coordinate other humanitarian activities in four sections of Haiti, our mapping project is now used by 30 agencies including Haitian Government Departments, the UN, Red Cross, Oxfam, UNICEF. This has only been possible by the donations and grants we receive.
from individuals, IOM and UNICEF
At the end of this month SASH
will be forced to leave Haiti because the funding has stopped.
Ask your government why their pledges are not here? why have they not sent the money promised? How are Cholera clinics closing when cholera is on the increase? Why are shelter programs being stopped when 10s of thousands of people are getting wet every time it rains
After a disaster we all want to help but once we have done their bit
they tend to forget and governments and the very large charities play on this, to not send the money to where you donated for.
Please all I want is to carry on our projects here in Haiti.
Thank you for your time reading my rant, it has made me feel better and now to work.
