#DONATENOW TO SUPPORT OUR CAUSE
FUNTOSALUD International, along with the Latino Ministry at the Riverside Church, has decided to join #GivingTuesdayNow global giving campaign due to the COVID-9’s socioeconomic impact to thousands of children and families in the #Haitian-#Dominican border. Haitian children's and families’ daily reality is going to bed hungry. If this small impoverished Haitian community with non-existence healthcare infrastructure, gets heavily infected, the children, the elderly, and the sick will not withstand the pandemic, devastating thousands of innocent lives.
Our Goal is to raise $5,000 dollar to provide 500 families in Anse-A-Pitre, Haiti with food security for two months

Why the DR/Haiti border?
The Haitian-Dominican border region, an impoverished area most often neglected and overlooked, serves as a site for daily trade activities, which generate substantial revenues that ironically, never reach the people who inhabit the nearby towns. These borderline villages are hubs for individuals from both sides of the island, who come to search for employment to improve their inhumane life conditions. Theses communities are racked by hunger, maternal and neonatal mortality, as well as, chronic bacterial and parasitic diseases; most of which can be prevented by regular healthcare, immunizations, prevention & educational services. Unfortunately, these towns lack sufficient resources to provide its residents with this necessary primary medical attention and other basic needs.
