An Urgent Message to Friends and Donors of Fonkoze

Urgent Notice to everyone wanting to send money to Haiti through Fonkoze:

Fonkoze Haiti is pleased to inform you that 28 Fonkoze branches are open for business and, depending on their cash liquidity, are paying cash transfers. They are listed below. There are a few branches we have not been able to communicate with but it is possible they are operating:

* Gantye, Fonveret
* Tyot
* Montoganize
* Fondwa.

We hope one Fonkoze branch office in Port-au-Prince will be open by Wednesday and will provide updates on these as information is confirmed.

For those of you who use our service with City National Bank of New Jersey, that bank has agreed to cover all transfer fees for the time being. That means every dollar you send will end up in the account of your beneficiary. We are grateful to Louis Prezeau of City National Bank of New Jersey for making this possible. He joined the very first conference call of friends of Fonkoze to offer his assistance and this is one tangible way he has followed through.

Moneygram is also offering a special: For any country sending US dollars to Haiti, the fee is $1. For any country sending Euros to Haiti, the fee is 1 Euro.

Remember: No matter what funds you transfer, they are secure. All three services we pay for are functioning without problems: Moneygram, Unitransfer and CAM. Not all branches are working normal hours at present, and we must stress that liquidity varies hourly, but the system itself is intact and your cash is secure.

Fully operational branches referenced above:

* Grandans: Jeremi, Bomon
* Sid: Okay, Okoto,
* Sides: Marigo, Lavale, Fondeblan
* Nippes: Miragwan
* Lwes: Lagonav, Latwazon,
* Plato Santral: Mibale, Tomonn, Boukankare, Sodo, Belade, Piyon, Ench
* Latibonit: Ponsonde, SenMichel, Gonayiv
* No: Okap, Lenbe, Milo, Pomago
* Nodes: Folibete, Twoudino, Wanament
* Nodwes: Podpe, Janrabel

John Mercier, President, Fonkoze USA
