3) Lambi Fund of Haiti
The Lambi Fund of Haiti is not a first responder, but a second responder. Lambi Fund will be there to help Haiti rebuild long after the relief service providers leave.
As a second responder, here are our plans for helping communities recover, today and tomorrow:
  • A tremendous outmigration from Port au Prince back to the rural villages has already started, stretching the capacity of rural communities. We are helping members of peasant groups get food and essentials for their families to re-establish their lives.
  • Provide seeds, tools, and equipment for peasant groups to plant more crops to feed rural communities.
  • Rebuild grain mills, sugar cane mills, and other economic development community enterprises lost in the earthquake. These buildings are the centers of communities' economic livelihoods.
  • Recapitalize micro-credit funds run by grassroots organizations so that people can replenish and continue their small businesses.
  • Repair rainwater cisterns so people will have a supply of safe drinking water.
