The people of Gonaives need your help! In light of the recent hurricane, more than 650 families are left without loved ones, clean water, food and a roof to call their own. I know how many times a year you are called upon for help. I can readily appreciate the strains in your budget. But, this is a crucial national problem which requires national attention and action.
The victims of the hurricane must be aided. This is a cause that merits our generous support, our most devoted effort. I, therefore urge you to send a generous contribution to Eritaj Foundation, firstname.lastname@example.org
, a 501 C3 organization.
In this time of great needs to the people of Gonaives, the primary function of Eritaj Foundation would be to fill the gap in services not provided by other organizations. Eritaj Foundation is based in Boston and Haiti. The organization is chaired by Gonaivians and is in position to better understand the need of the people and to help the people of Gonaives, secure food, shelter, clothings, medicine and a good place in which to live.
