Relief for the people of Pestel

$11,953 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 132 people in 22 months
My name is Marc Alcegaire, a Haitian professional living in NY City area. Being a Pestelois  I formed an association called Retrouvailles_Entre_Pestelois, a group of friends and family from Pestel, Haiti  working together to raise funds to support both the immediate relief and rebuilding efforts in Pestel, Haiti. 

On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew, a category 4 hurricane, devastated much of the Grand'Anse region of southwest, Haiti. Our family and friends in Pestel, Haiti, were amongst those who suffered severe damage to their homes and community. Although we are thankful no one died, the task of rebuilding is enormous. Close to 90% of homes, buildings, and other infrastructure were blown or swept away. Furthermore, there is very limited access to food and clean water. The hospital is in dire need of basic supplies to help the wounded. 

The photos we've received (see below) from people there show the massive devastation. Our goal is to support our Pestelois family after this devastating hurricane and provide aide for rebuilding. 

We are not working with any international relief organizations. 100% of the funds will be used to assist Pestelois. We will provide updates on how funds are spent and photos of the progress we are making. Also, please find attached a powerpoint that shows the work we had already done in Pestel prior to the hurricane. 

Thank you for your help and support! Our goal is to raise $100000.

Dear All,
Thank you again!
As announced in March, we built the waiting area at Kafou Lafievre, a locality in the second section of Pestel. This space will allow travelers to find a shelter, while waiting for the buses and can also be use as a gathering place.
More update to come on the other projects.
