I am sure you have heard by now the devastating damage caused by Hurricane Matthew in parts of Haiti. It has left countless families without homes, no food and no clean water. We may not be able to save or serve all, but we can certainly do our part.
Many crops have been decimated as well as loss of many live stock. Meanwhile people are still searching for their family members taken by flood waters. Furthermore, we still await the final outcome as the aftermath of Matthew’s destruction continues to unfold. In the meantime, everyday we receive more news that the death toll continues to increase. Parts of Haiti remain cut off by flooded roads and bridges.
Kanpe Haiti has a team in Haiti on standby and they are ready to help meet the need. Let us do our part to ensure they're able to do theirs.
Give today and help with urgent care!
What’s on your bucket list?
More than a drop in the bucket, “A bucket filled with hope”!
At the start of this year KanpeHaiti has launched project “Fill a Bucket” as a service project to ensure that communities in Haiti have household supplies usable for daily living. KanpeHaiti believes if value of life for communities in Haiti can be highlighted through support, encouragement and inspiration, their quality of life will be enhanced.
Buckets are a necessary reusable tool utilized daily by families in Haiti. Buckets are often used to collect and store water from streams, store food supplies, wash clothes and clean kitchen items. Farmers use buckets to spread and gather seeds, collect weeds and thorns, and feed farm animals. Construction workers use buckets to carry sand, stack rocks and mix clay. Merchants use buckets to sell items in the market place.
We are asking sponsors to purchase five-gallon plastic buckets and fill them with required food items for $30 each. The food in a single bucket can feed a Haitian family for a week. We also are asking you to include a $10 cash contribution placed in an envelope and attached to the bucket's lid to help with the cost of shipping the buckets to Haiti or you may send your donation through our website.
