Board President Hugh Tozer kicks off Konbit Sante’s annual appeal by pointing out to donors just some the ways your dollars have strengthened the health system in northern Haiti in 2012.
Konbit Sante made important progress this year in our mission to improve the health system for our neighbors in northern Haiti. We are grateful to you for the work you have enabled.
Here are just a few examples of what your support helped achieve this year:
Please read our annual report for more stories on how your financial support has strengthened the building blocks of the health system so that Haitians can live longer and more productive lives.
For over a decade, Konbit Sante has worked to improve the health system in Cap-Haitien through partnerships with our Haitian colleagues, the Ministry of Health and other organizations. These long-term relationships built on mutual respect have led to an effective model of joint problem solving. Though this approach sometimes seems slower, it leads to sustainable improvements supported by those involved. There are no quick fixes.
We need your continued support now more than ever. A decline in donations this past year has required us to dip into our reserves. As we look to the future we are concerned that core programs may be at risk if our revenues continue to decline. We at Konbit Sante are in it for the long haul and hope we can depend on your continued support as we all work together in this konbit.
