Haiti - Budget


Do you wonder what type of financial support we provide to the community of Latiboliere? It's not easy to quantify because there are so many donated items that we are able to share thanks to your generosity.

While our total budget is $22,280 yearly, unexpected needs are often directed to us. One recent example is: in 2009, $3000 was requested and provided to help the village of Latiboliere to connect to a government sponsored water project.

While donation requests are difficult to predict, one thing is certain; after the earthquake, we expect needs to be much greater. Even the very basic supplies needed for day to day living will be in scare supply and consequently more expensive.
