EXTENSION! We are excited to announce Project Gonaives’ extension until 28 March 2009. You thought you had missed the opportunity to volunteer in Haiti, but NO! Due to unparalleled collaboration with other NGOs such as Catholic Relief Services (CRS), UNICEF, Oxfam Great Britain, and Action Against Hunger, we have decided to continue to our hurricane relief work alongside the people of Haiti.
Volunteers are needed to help Haiti recover from hurricanes! In August and September Haiti was hit by the succession by Tropical Storm Fay and Hurricanes Gustav, Hanna, and Ike, which affected an estimated 800,000 people. HODR has deployed to the coastal city of Gonaives, Haiti, to assist in the city's recovery through volunteer efforts. The flooding from these storms left the entire city, its homes and buildings, feet deep in mud. HODR volunteers work 6 days per week, removing this mud, and helping the community get back on its feet. Email today if you are interested in lending a hand or learning more.
