Focus on OECS – Haiti
Dear OECS Nationals and Friends,
Our brothers and sisters in Haiti urgently need your help.
As many of you are aware, hurricane Mathew hit Haiti directly on October 4th. The damage and destruction caused by this powerful storm has left thousands of families in need of help. This recent disaster further set back the country as it struggles to rebuild lives from the major earthquake of 2010.
While there is an immediate need for food, clean water, shelter and Hygiene supplies, the cost of supporting and sustaining this huge emergency effort, will require ongoing financial assistance, according to Dr. Eric Pierre, Honorary Consul for Haiti in Toronto.
On behalf of the OECS Nationals Council, Canada, I am writing to ask you to give generously to help ensure families have basic essentials to survive this tragedy.
Any gift of a direct contribution can be made to the following TD account established by Pierspective Entraide Humanitaire ( PEH ). PEH is a Canadian registered non-profit charity which supports the children and the elderly in Haiti. PEH will issue a charitable receipt upon request. Contact Helen Pierre ( [email protected] ),902 Bathurst St. Toronto, M5R – 3G3
