Dear citizens and friends of Port-a-Piment,

We have all been deeply affected by the human tragedy, flooding and destruction of our motherland Haiti from hurricanes Fay, Gustav and Hanna. As a Port-à-Pimentais, the impact is personal. Pictures received from the locals in the aftermath of Hurricane Hanna are heart-wrenching. Debris is clogging our streets. Stagnant water spread all over town is a source of contamination and constitutes a serious health hazard that must be dealt with immediately. With scare resources at his disposal, the mayor is overwhelmed by the challenge and needs assistance.

Many of you have asked what you can do to help. Our answer is simple: let's join hands to act in this unfortunate situation and show that we care by mounting a wide fundraising effort: Konbit for Port-à-Piment. We cannot think of a more appropriate theme to unite our efforts to help the city face the immediate challenge of removing the debris left in the aftermath of the Gran Pass–Gran Rivyè flooding. You may see the pictures at: www.picasaweb.google.com/frantzphoto

We are working closely with our local association, Group Initiative Pour un Port-à-Piment Nouveau [GIPPN]* to facilitate all transfers to the “Mairie de Port-à-Piment”. The funds collected will be earmarked for sanitizing our streets by freeing them of debris and dormant water which pose the most immediate threat.

Please contribute by writing a check made payable to “GIPPN”. Send it to one of the following addresses:
