25 Years of the Haiti Support Group

£585 of £2,500 goal

Raised by 35 people in 10 months

This summer the Haiti Support Group will be celebrating 25 years of solidarity with the Haitian people. Launched at the Houses of Parliament in June 1992, for two and a half decades we have collaborated with the poor majority in Haiti, reflecting and amplifying the views of grassroots, popular, participatory groups on the ground. We work with trade unions, women’s organisations, peasant groups, neighbourhood associations and human rights defenders who - we believe - are the best placed to represent and defend the vast majority of the Haitian people’s desire for real democracy, justice and equitable development.

We are launching this Gofundme page in the run-up to our 25th anniversary celebrations in London on 1st July 2017 for a very special celebration of the work and successes of the Haiti Support Group. This includes 25 years of our Haiti Briefing, a publication that has provided our members, Haiti watchers and decision-makers with analysis of Haiti’s development issues, reflected through the voices of popular organisations on the ground.

Any donation, no matter how small, will help us with the running costs of our small but very active organisation.  All help we receive will ensure that our team of Haiti watchers, grassroots activists, campaigners, members of the Haitian Diaspora, legal experts, journalists, academics and development specialists can continue to amplify the voices of Haitian civil society to everyone and anyone that will listen.
