Dear Friends of GOALS,
Due to Covid19 reaching Haiti we are being proactive in our outreach to isolated communities that do not have access to reliable information and medical care. Doctors warn Haiti's already fragile healthcare system would be unable to cope with a major Coronavirus outbreak in a country with just 100 ventilators and few hospital beds.
Therefore education and prevention are critical to protecting these already vulnerable communities. Our role during this crisis is one of a leader in the 3 remote rural communities that we serve. We lead by example and in hand with community members.
Our best efforts now and in the coming months will be critical. We intend to provide outreach to 400 youth participants and their families on health education, disease prevention, proper hygiene, and nutritional support.
This is an emergency response to help protect program participants, their families, and the communities at large. We need help to achieve our response. Our objective is to raise 15k that will provide handwash stations, soap, cleaning supplies, face masks (made by local tailors) and alimentary kits with food staples.
A gift of $50 provides one family with a kit that will help them to protect themselves and survive during this crisis. Thanks to a generous gift from our Board have a match of up to 15k towards our Covid19 response efforts. This investment will ensure our remote communities have the education and resources to weather this storm.
There are no other organizations working in the areas we serve, and a little support goes a long way. Every gift is valuable and is much needed and appreciated. Together we are creating healthier more stable communities. Thank you for being a part of our team as we look out for one another during these trying times.
