Most of us have added the giving tradition of #GIVINGTUESDAY each November....it falls right after Black Friday and Cyber Monday...our chance to focus on giving instead of receiving.
In response to the worldwide pandemic,
May 5th has been designated as a
special GIVING TUESDAY to honor our heroes,
remember the victims, and seek solutions
Since Coronavirus first hit the U.S. and Haiti, we have been reporting to you about the fear and panic that has gripped the Haitian people. But they are not just paralyzed with fear....the economy is suffering due to the closing of markets, borders and ports. It added to an existing drought and ongoing political violence to cause a food shortage crisis. Over the past two weeks, you responded so generously to the food relief campaign, and we THANK YOU!
But the crisis is far from over in Haiti. Thankfully, COVID-19 has been slow to enter the country. But now that it is in Haiti, it will spread...and the effects could be devastating.
CHILDREN FIRST IN A TIME OF CRISIS
Our new partner, Overture International, recently convened its partner network, including leaders from Espwa, to coordinate efforts to protect vulnerable children during the pandemic. READ MORE...
