I have such exciting news to share! Our long time supporters, the SG Foundation, have once again given us a grant matching opportunity. Donations up to $20,000 will be matched, giving us a chance to double
our money! We are so grateful for their longtime support, and for giving us the chance to make your money go even further. You can donate through our web portal here at www.midwivesforhaiti.org/donate. This will truly give us a much-needed boost to help keep our programs running smoothly through 2023.
Haiti can be a difficult place to work and live. Life can be upended in an instant, whether through natural disaster, political turmoil, or economic devastation. This is where smaller, community based NGOs have a distinct advantage over huge, multinational organizations. We can respond quickly and pivot operations on the ground with a minimum of bureaucratic delay. We can care for our staff and beneficiaries as swiftly and inexpensively as possible, while keeping their needs as our highest priority.
A prime example of this happened during Covid. When Haitian government regulations for social distancing came out, we realized we (along with most other institutions) were not in compliance. We were able to come to our supporters, and build an outdoor classroom within two weeks, making MFH one of the only schools to be able to carry on with any semblance of normalcy.
And just this week we are having to change our Haitian bank, as the one we are currently using is not able to meet our needs (Haiti is economically disastrous right now. Inflation is over 35%, the gourde is in freefall, and there are almost no US dollars in circulation, severely curtailing us and our staff’s purchasing power). Within a few days, we were able to change not only our account, but all 68 of our staff’s as well.
It is thanks to people like you, and the SG Foundation who make these responses manageable. Thank you for trusting us with your donations, so that we can run our beloved MFH in a transparent and ethical manner. We truly view you all as our partners, and all of us on the ground think of you so fondly.
Thank you for helping us make our match, and for changing the lives of families in Haiti.
