Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 hurricane, made landfall in Haiti at 7:00 a.m. on October 4. By now, you have probably heard the news about the devastating potential of this storm.
Plant With Purpose is already responding. Our local Haitian team is reaching out to affected communities, working through well-established community relationships to clear impassable roads and quickly begin the process of helping farming families rebuild their farms and lives.
As of November 10, $92,814 in support has been raised.
Help us finish funding our goal of $100,000. Your donation will:
- Help impacted families access seeds to replant crops lost in the storm
- Hire workers to build 15 miles of soil conservation barriers
- Plant 25,000 trees to replace damaged trees and build environmental resilience
This type of cash-for-work program is one of the most effective ways of getting food to people, without further damaging the local economy or driving other farmers out of business.
Please join us in responding to the situation in Haiti by giving today or starting a fundraising campaign.
