Walk the Talk for Haiti
Three of us from the Africa for Haiti campaign visited Haiti from 10-22 August 2010. The Africa for Haiti executive is working on two project proposals, along with our partners in Haiti, with the view of establishing long-term relations with the people of Haiti.
Africa for Haiti wants to support a clinic in Port-au-Prince for female victims of violence operated by SOFA. Another organisation, Saj Veyeyo runs a primary school that is still housing earthquake victims living in tents on the school premises.
Both SOFA and Saj Veyeyo are Haitian organisations run by Haitian staff. Both are affiliated to PAPDA, the Haitian Platform for Alternative Development.
The delegates that undertook the August 2010 trip were Bernard Likalimba from AfricanMonitor, Praveen Prasad from TrustAfrica and Andries Louw from Global Relief. Follow this link to see a list of Africa for Haiti partners: http://gigaf.org/9V8GS1
In the pictures above you can see Graça Machel and some Africa for Haiti partners walking the Discovery 702 Walk the Talk on 25 July 2010 to raise awareness for the campaign.
We invite you to walk this journey with us and to talk with us as you follow our live updates from the ground in Haiti. Show your solidarity with the people of Haiti by making a donation to support Haitian initiatives to reconstruct their country.
Please join in the conversation below, spread the message and encourage others to walk the talk too!
