As we near the end of an old year and prepare for a new one, we are reminded of the generosity of our supporters. This past year has been an especially challenging one for people around the globe, and we are honored and touched that people continue to believe in us and our mission to strengthen capacity for a sustainable health system in Greater Cap-Haitien.
We also remember those we have lost, and send condolences to their families who are spending the holidays without them. One of our longtime supporters, George Crockett, left us with a generous bequest upon his passing in August 2019, which we received this year. George was a regular financial supporter and champion of Konbit Sante who spent many hours volunteering over the years, and even served as our de facto “warehouse manager” for a time. Thanks to his remembering Konbit Sante in his estate planning, we were able to respond to the COVID-19 health crisis swiftly and efficiently while continuing our work on the ground in coordination with our partners.
We are currently in the midst of our annual appeal, which is our largest fundraising campaign of the year. Money raised during the annual appeal makes up the majority of our funding for the coming year, and provides us with a strong financial base with which we can plan to support our healthcare partners in Haiti.
As you plan your charitable giving this holiday season, we ask that you once again consider making a donation to Konbit Sante. You can support us in a number of ways:
Make a monetary donation. Click here to donate online. You can make a one-time donation of a lump sum or spread it out via recurring donations throughout the year.
Include Konbit Sante in your estate planning. Like our dear friend George Crockett, you will be helping to ensure that our work can continue not only for the coming year, but for years to come. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (207) 347-6733 if you would like more information.
Volunteer your time. Volunteer opportunities are available in both Maine and Cap-Haitien. Click here to fill out a volunteer application.
Donate medical supplies and equipment. We only ship supplies that our healthcare partners request and need, which vastly reduces waste and storage costs. Click here for a list of commonly needed supplies.
Follow us on our social media channels—Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn—and subscribe to our weekly newsletter. You will not only be kept up to date on how your support is making a difference in Haiti, you will have the opportunity to share that news with your friends, family members, and colleagues.
Whichever way you choose to support Konbit Sante during this time of giving, you have our deepest gratitude. None of what we do would be possible without you.
Bon fet (happy holidays) from all of us at Konbit Sante.
