Support Sante Total on Giving Tuesday

Dear friends of Sante Total,

Mesi Anpil (thank you so much), for your generous donations of time, energy, and money, and your willingness to help! Sante Total is counting on your participation to continue our projects in Haiti. 

Please lend us your support this giving Tuesday, November 29th! Together, we can make a difference!

Why? Because Haiti is still the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and the recent political turmoil has caused suffering in Jacsonville. Our friends are struggling with inflation, gang violence, and gas, food and medication shortages. The gangs even forced Gaby to close the Elementary School and threatened to kill the kids if they came to school. Through all of the difficulties, he has persevered, and we are excited that school has reopened and the clinic is done and we are moving forward with furnishings and buying equipment.

Invest with us in Haiti. You will not regret it!

2022 Accomplishments:
– COVID and Cholera prevention: We supported ongoing COVID prevention, and now cholera prevention, demonstrating how to construct hand-washing stations and educating families on the prevention of COVID and the importance of wearing masks. We plan to educate each household individually again this year now that cholera is back.

– Medical care: We provide medical advice for the community through Telemedicine consults. We provided over $1000 to help patients pay for their surgery, hospitalizations and medications.

– Permanent Medical Clinic: The permanent clinic is basically done thanks to the Rotary Club of Ellicott City! The fence is almost finished, and we received a $10,000 grant through the club to provide furnishings and equipment.

 School Lunch Program: We expanded the school lunch program and are providing daily lunches to all of the pupils and teachers of St. Rose of Lima School. When schools close due to COVID or political reasons, Gaby sends the food home monthly to help support the families. This is sadly often the only food the kids receive during the day.

 CHEAHP (Center for the Handicapped and Aged of Pignon): We supported weekly meetings, monthly meals and a Holiday party for the center.

– Sustainable Agriculture: The fruit-bearing tree project continues to move forward.

– Educational Support: We have invested over $18,000 dollars in scholarships for students who will help us staff the permanent clinic including: one medical, one nursing, one pharmacy and one administrative student.

Thank you again for all your support in these difficult times!
