“I appreciate very much OPODNE’s initiative to stop the Corona virus in the schools.”– Terrier Rouge School Superintendent, Geemps Joseph
In Phase 2 of their campaign to control COVID, OPODNE leaders are delivering wash buckets to more than 100 schools in the Northeast. Thanks to the generous donation of the Ansara Family Fund and individual donors, thirty-eight thousand students will be able to wash their hands when they enter and leave school.

In addition, check out their work to distribute 4000 fruit trees valued at $3,500 to 12 villages that will help provide food to 1000 families where food insecurity is severe.
Knowing that filling the gap for a dysfunctional, corrupt government is inadequate, fifty Faith in Action affiliates, allies and Haitian diaspora leaders participated in a webinar where we heard a powerful presentation from Fritz Jean and had a discussion about Haitian politics and the role that our Faith in Action Network and the Haitian diaspora communities could play in changing U.S. policy toward Haiti. In the coming months we invite you to join in research meetings with faith leaders, policy experts and key politicians as we work to shape a new approach to Haiti that focuses on promoting democracy, accountability and community-led development.
