Can you Help Clotere?

As a charity we have a policy of not helping individuals, rather we donate to groups in La Gonave where the local people are able to use the money for the greatest benefit within their community. However, recently we were approached to help a man called Clotere.

He has a problem of swelling within his left testicle and as you can see from the picture that is quite an understatement. His problem requires surgery and is not straightforward. He needs to go to a hospital on the mainland for treatment. This is likely to be quite costly. Having seen the extent of his problem we felt we could not refuse to help. We hope you will want to help too! Problems on this scale are not uncommon in Haiti where many people have little or no access to medical advice. If you donate to our Kiltwalk appeal here

we receive a 50% uplift from Tom Farmer on your donation. We hope this makes you just a wee bit more appreciative of a Scottish NHS which means problems for you will never get this big! If we raise more money than the cost of surgery for Clotere the excess will go to the hospital fund to help other people in similar circumstances.

NEW HAITI HELP WEBSITE

Welcome to the first blog post on our newly revamped website. We are currently 6 weeks into the Corona Virus Lockdown. The lockdown has been a disaster for Haiti Help because 60% of our income came from fundraising events. We are currently looking at new ways of raising money. Please contact us if you have any good ideas, we need all the help we can get. Meanwhile if you would like to become one of our regular donors please click on the “donate” button to find out how. Haiti Help is run entirely by volunteers so 100% of the money you donate will be used to help alleviate the desperate poverty on the island of La Gonave, Haiti. If you have any strong preference we can direct your money to children, elderly, disabled or healthcare. Currently this is how our donations are divided up:
