Pancakes for Progress: Please Join Us!

Dear Health for Haiti Friends,

Although we are not able travel to Haiti this January, our students and staff are working to ensure that projects bringing positive change to the community in Grande Saline can continue to move forward.  We really need your support.  Please consider joining our efforts by attending the Health for Haiti “Pancakes for Progress” breakfast.

What: Pancakes for Progress Flapjack Fundraiser

When: Sunday, November 10, 2019 from 8 am to 10 am

Where: Applebees at 842 Upper Front Street in Binghamton

(across from SUNY Broome)

Breakfast tickets are only $7 and will be available at the door…but please let us know if you plan to attend so we can make sure to have plenty of pancakes!

For more information or to RSVP for our event, please contact:

Jen Musa (musajm@sunybroome.edu)

or

Maureen Hankin (hankinmr@sunybroome.edu)

This fundraiser will help us to continue to provide clean safe drinking water, community gardens, basic health services, education, and economic opportunities.  Below you can see examples of some recent progress in Grande Saline, such as pictures of all of the grade levels at the school (now including kindergarten AND seventh grade….our first secondary school class!!), rice growing in the community garden, our water filtration system with the new pavilion to support future solar panels, and this month’s medical clinic.

This is a tremendously difficult time for millions of people in Haiti, and the needs there are greater now than ever. We hope to show our friends in Grande Saline that Health for Haiti remains committed to our partnership, even if – for now – we can only help from home.

So please come and eat some pancakes for a good cause…and bring a friend!
