    Descriptive info: home.. =.. projects.. donate.. links.. An Urgent Appeal from the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund.. On January 12, 2010, Haiti was hit by its first large earthquake in 240 years.. Over 230,000 people have died and three million have been left homeless.. In the fall of 2010, the death toll increased due to a cholera epidemic originating with the United Nations occupying forces in the Artibonite Valley.. As the epidemic spreads, Haitians have demonstrated their anger and frustration over the slow pace of the relief response by the UN, the Haitian government and major international aid agencies.. Adding insult to injury, the US and the UN have persisted in upholding the alleged results of sham elections, fraudulent on numerous counts, on November 28, 2010.. Haiti’s grassroots movement – including labor unions, women’s groups, educators and human rights activists, support committees for political prisoners, and agricultural cooperatives – are funneling aid received from the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund to those most hit by the earthquake.. They are doing what they can – with the most limited of funds – to make a difference.. Please take this chance to lend them your support.. Since its inception in March 2004, the Haiti Emergency  ...   Fund will be forwarded to our partners on the ground to help them rebuild what has been destroyed.. Click here for some examples.. of what your donations received since the earthquake have already accomplished.. Click here for information on how to donate.. to the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund.. Our aid goes directly into the hands of Haitians.. We give aid, not charity; we respect the people of Haiti and honor their commitment to lead the rebuilding of their society in the wake of this disaster.. We have worked to support Haiti for the past six years, not just for the past few weeks.. We will continue our work long after Haiti has dropped from the front pages.. We hope that you will be there with us.. We appreciate every penny, every dime, every dollar.. Our hearts are with Haiti.. Contact.. :.. herf1804@hotmail.. com.. or.. 510-595-4650..

    Descriptive info: Here are some examples of what your donations received since the earthquake have already accomplished.. A more comprehensive report on our activities during 2010 is available.. here.. Please contact us if you would like free hard copies of this report.. In the days immediately following the earthquake, we sent a truckload of medical supplies to the.. Aristide Foundation for Democracy.. , which has become a center for medical relief work in the Port-au-Prince area.. Thousands of people sought refuge in the Foundation right after the earthquake, and – with your support – the organizers there have been able to provide food, water and medical care for those in need.. From the moment the earthquake hit, we facilitated the travel of teams of nurses and doctors to the Port-au-Prince area.. Using our networks within Haiti, we insured that medical supplies and personnel reached communities that had not received any aid.. HERF sponsored a team of doctors to open a day clinic in Bel Air.. They treated people who could not find a place in the lines for medical attention at the General Hospital.. HERF also bought and distributed more than 100 gallons of fresh drinking water in Bel Air.. As we write this, we have just helped to send another doctor with medical supplies to Port-au-Prince.. We are now funding a mobile health clinic that has been set up within the.. Aristide Foundation.. This clinic has already treated thousands of patients since it was established in early March.. We have supported a series of neighborhood committees organized by grass roots activists in Port-au-Prince.. These committees have been housing the homeless, providing food and water for those who have never seen any U.. military or UN aid.. Neighbors helping neighbors, Haitians helping Haitians, activists helping to sustain their local areas.. We have provided funds to a series of women’s groups at the center of the grassroots relief effort.. The Women Camp of Mesiane, one of the internal refugee camps dotting Port-au-Prince, received funding for food medical supplies, as well as for activities to commemorate International Women’s Day on March 8th.. We have supported a women’s organizing project in Les Cayes, an area hit by the earthquake but ignored by most relief efforts.. Many survivors have ended up in Les Cayes, needing water, food, and medicine.. Working through the Progrssive Women of Les Cayes, we have assisted these efforts.. We have continued our support for the work of the.. by funding its mobile schools project.. This project has given employment to 102 high  ...   to Shoulder, a community group in Cite Soleil, the poorest neighborhood in Port-au-Prince.. With these funds, organizers purchased a generator for a cyber café, providing a way for residents in Cite Soleil to communicate with friends and family in the days following the quake.. Shoulder to Shoulder has also helped to house children in Cite Soleil who have been orphaned as a result of the quake.. We have provided funds for tarps in the Port-au-Prince area, Leogane and Jacmel.. People continue to sleep outside, either because their homes are destroyed or because of continuing after-shocks.. As the rainy season begins in Haiti, the on-going crisis of sanitation, health and shelter is at the center of grassroots organizing campaigns and relief efforts.. We have funded.. Soulaje Lespri Moun.. (Relief for the Spirit) a lay mental health worker project of the.. Young Haitian college students have been trained to work with children and families in the refugee camps, These mental health workers meet on a regular basis with families in the camps, helping survivors talk about the losses they have suffered and giving people hope for the future.. We have made funds available for the short and long-term goals of women, peasants and other grassroots community organizations for the rebuilding of their lives.. We have provided funds for micro-credit and other cooperative, small business ventures especially involving food production and processing of locally grown crops for local consumption.. We are funding an exciting project developed by.. in cooperation with Men Ansanm (Hands Together), and an association of 150 farmers in La Plaine, in the Port-au-Prince area.. Using the Mandalla agricultural structure (formed by nine concentric circles in which cultivation areas are set up around a circular reservoir), farmers are creating an integrated agricultural system on the grounds of the UniFA (University of the Aristide Foundation).. In addition to feeding their own families, farmers will be selling fish and agricultural projects in local markets.. We have supported numerous agricultural projects throughout the country, providing funds for irrigation pumps and grain mills that are shared by groups of farmers, as well as silos for grain storage so that farmers aren’t dependent on selling their harvest all at once for low prices and can thus be more economically independent.. At the request of a group of women farmers in a rural community west of Port-au-Prince, we provided funds for the purchase of several mules so that they could transport their produce to market without having to carry them on their heads for a seven-hour walk..
