Meet the recipient of the house HOPE AND CHANGE FOR HAITI is currently building
September 26, 2018
Thanks to your generous support and thanks to all who attended our First Annual "Engage for Change" Gala fundraiser, we were able to raise enough money to build a three bedrooms house for another family among 70 who lost their home during hurricane Matthew that destroyed the southern region of Haiti on October 4-6, 2016.
Fred Jean-Baptiste is the recipient of the 2nd house built by Hope and Change for Haiti in this program. He lives in the village of Jeannette, Paillant-Haiti, with his wife Martha Rinchere and their three children. During the hurricane Matthew, Fred lost his house, gardens and livestock. To provide to their kids, Fred and his wife rely uniquely on shoddy farming. They don't have any formal jobs and don't receive any form of support from the local and national authorities. With this three bedrooms house, he gets his dignity and pride back after living in a shoddy and unsafe place for the last two years. He is so happy that his children can live in a sturdy and safe house.
To solve another problem for this family we want to build a cistern of 15000 gallon capacity alongside of the new house. To do so, we are seeking to raise $1500. We kindly ask for your support to help us to reach our goal. Please click HERE to contribute for the construction of the cistern.
We will keep you posted on the update of this construction!
Thank you for your continued support to Hope and Change for Haiti
