BOUKAN FOR HAITI
Boukan For Haiti is a Haitian community initiative, that will provide ongoing support post crises consisting of a donation supply drive, and a fundraising drive via GoFundMe. The fundraising initiative will be ongoing, but the donation supply drive is immediate. As a result, we will be collecting non-perishable foods, clothing, school supplies, first aid/medical supplies and cleaning supplies.
Boukan for Haiti has teamed up with local organizations and hospitals in Haiti that will dispense supplies and distribute funds from this initiative to affected residents that were severely impacted by the earthquake, specifically in Sud, Grand’Anse, and Nippes. Organizations such as Arise Projects, www.ariseprojects.org have played an integral part in the earthquake relief. Arise Projects is an organization that provides mentoring and empowerment to the youth in Haiti, and for over 6 years they have been committed to helping youth across the Caribbean. Funds will also be allocated to Cara Med, a local Haitian hospital in south Haiti, that is providing medical care to the residents that were severely impacted by the earthquake.
Boukan is fortunate to have the support of the Consulate of Haiti, Dr. Eric Pierre & his non-profit organization, Pierspective Entraide Humanitaire https://pehhaiti.org/ on board with this initiative.
