This Mother’s Day you have an excellent opportunity to honor the special women in your life by showing your support for the mother’s of Haiti’s Central Plateau. This year instead of sending flowers, perfumes, or chocolates give a gift that makes a difference by donating to Project Medishare’s Akamil program.
In light of the recent food riots happening all over Haiti, Project Medishare is working to go beyond emergency food aid by developing the Akamil facility coupled with an agriculture program to provide training, tools, and support to local farmers in order for them to produce crops for themselves. By doing this local farmers will be able to move from subsistence farming to cash crops creating not only an economic boost for the community but a nutritional one as well. The nutritional supplement produced at the Akamil facility will also provide food to mothers in order to help them raise a healthy child.
The Akamil facility will also provide:
* Nourishment for HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis patients
* Daily nutrition for 200,000 individuals in Haiti’s Central Plateau
* Sustainable operating revenue
* Support 3000 local farmers helping them transition from subsistence farming to cash crop farming.
* Entrepreneurial opportunities for women merchants in the plateau
Honoring your mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, stepmother, aunt, sister, or friend with a gift to Project Medishare helps us honor the women of Haiti’s Central Plateau by giving them the tools to increase the economic and nutritional welfare of their community.
For a gift of $25 or more, we will send a Mother’s Day note to a special woman in your life, letting her know that a donation has been made in her honor. The women of Thomonde will appreciate your thoughtful gift which will help them raise healthy children so that their community can have a brighter tomorrow.
This year Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11. To ensure that your note is mailed on time, we must receive your donation by Friday, May 2. Click here to make your donation now. Once you have donated, email Gabriele Denis (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the address(es) of those you are honoring so they may receive their Mother’s Day note.
