73 year old Andre Fequiere along with his 75 year old brother and elderly sister in-law lives in La'Plaine, Haiti. They support five teenage and preteen orphans that were given refuge when they were past the age where adoptions would have been possible.
His neighborhood suffered minor damages compared to the capital but they also have no electricity, food or clean water. The roads are too damaged for cars, they are to old to walk such long distances and the girls would be in danger if they ventured out alone.
The HAITIAN-Foundation has teams of Haitian-Americans and others throughout New York City, Atlanta and Miami prepared to travel to Haiti and bring aid directly to these areas. We also have people in Haiti prepared to meet us at the airport with SUVs to transport our staff of volunteers to these rural areas outside of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti.
One of our goal is to raise the necessary funds that will allow these teams to regularly travel from the United States into Haiti, secure reliable transportation, collect food water and medical supplies, personally deliver them to these remote areas and oversee its distribution.
