COVID19 Prep campaign for Friends of Borgne

Please help us help Borgne, Haiti prepare for COVID19! 

The medical system in Haiti is not equipped to provide ICU care with ventilation, so it is imperative that we reduce the spread of the virus.  Haitians are ready to step up to this difficult challenge, but funding is needed to support them.

The Foundation Dauphin in Borgne has a sewing training program which is ready to sew masks for the hospital and the larger community.  The Scouts are prepared to set up hand washing stations in the markets and provide community education by megaphone out in the hills where many do not have access to news or information.  The hospital is in the process of establishing a field hospital next door to handle an influx of patients.  

Friends of Borgne is raising money to support these community requests and also to provide additional food to the families of our students as they maintain social distancing. Food supplies were already short in Haiti due to the ongoing political crisis and last fall's blockade.  Hunger is up 15% this year.  People do not have stores of food  or money or social safety nets to get them through, and now they are not supposed to work.

Please help in anyway you can--prayers, ideas, donations of any amount.  As a global community of talented and committed people helping one another, we will get through this.  May you all stay healthy and well!
