First live report from the ISGF Team visiting Haiti from 24 – 29 June 2017
As many of you may remember, six years ago, in 2010, Haiti suffered a very bad earthquake. That year the National Fellowship ADSEGAH and the Central Branch group CASEGAH USA asked for medical support and many countries helped.
Since then nothing else happened and the needs are still there. We invite you to please help us to continue our work in support of the Haitian people.
ISGF project HAITI 2016 focuses on some of those urgent needs:
• Build the Headquarters of the National Girl Guide Association of Haiti
Update December 2016: For the time being, no funds have been transferred to the Girl Guide Association of Haiti because the project was to be carried out in partnership with several sponsors in addition to ISGF. As you may understand, this project cannot be implemented with the sole support of ISGF. Therefore the project will be considered as pending by ISGF until other sponsors get involved as expected.
• Complete the fence of the Orphanage “Enfant Haitien Mon Frére”, supported by the ADSEGAH, Fellowship from Haiti.
Update 8 May 2017: The Orphanage ‘Enfant Haïtien Mon Frère’ received US$ 5,000 from ISGF for the building of its fence. The fence/wall is now completely built. The next required step is to put a belt of concrete to consolidate it, which will be done with the remaining amount. It is on a hectare of field and is made of building blocks. It makes the land secured and thus it prevents from property theft.
Agricultural students from the Action Toward Initiatives and Volunteering for Education in Haiti group (Activeh), under guidance of an agronomist, are responsible for enhancing the field by preparing the soil in order to plant vegetables that will allow the children to eat organic food. It will also reduce the expenditure regarding the purchase of vegetables. Later, fruit trees will be planted. If they did not have to face a problem of water, they would have already started planting. However the cleaning of the premises is already done. Subsequently a tractor will do the plowing.
• Refurnish the newly constructed School Carmen René Durocher, supported by the Girl Guide Association
Update 08 May 2017: The School ‘Carmen René Durocher’ received US$ 7,000 to buy the required furniture. An ISGF delegation will go to Haiti to see how the projects are going and they will bring school supplies, games etc.
