Our immediate concern is to provide relief and support for refugees from the recent earthquake, mitigate their suffering and help them put their lives back together. We are helping the evacuees from the Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas who will be seeking refuge outside of the stricken capital, providing shelter, food and access to medical supplies.We are placing our organization's long experience in development activities at the service of the community and would appreciate everyone's support at this time. The immediate impact will be to feed and house as many families as possible suffering today from the terrible events of the recent earthquake.The key long-term goals of our development projects in Haiti are to increase farmer income, produce nutritionally enhanced food, and to improve the environment with commercial fruit trees. The programs involves high revenue tree crops, improved seeds, cash crops and marketing initiatives. Working directly with farmers, we are able to provide practical solutions to deforestation and subsistence farming. We offer commercial quality plant materials and the technical assistance needed for successful production and marketing. Practical agricultural training and hands-on technical assistance are essential means to achieve these goals.
