CAN-DO TEAM RETURNS TO HAITI - While on the ground in Haiti in December, CAN-DO discovered a neighborhood in need of urgent help. The help is needed is needed in a densely populated area called Carrefour Feuille. Their main bridge – which connects hundreds of people to the main road -- washed away due to heavy rains earlier this year. With no bridge, all the people in the neighborhood are forced to climb down a 40 foot ravine, cross through a contaminated river and then back up the other side. This prevents many children the ability to go to school due to the dangerous trek that they’d have to make each day. This also prevents elderly and disabled people the access to leave their homes at all. Many parents voiced their concern of the dangers, particularly for kids and the elderly. CAN-DO put out a call for action and our donors responded! Now the CAN-DO team along with local Haitian contractors are making this bridge a reality. The project is in progress now and expected to be complete early February.
