Hurricane Matthew strikes Haiti
According to the United Nations an estimated 1.4 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Haiti in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew and at least 1,000 people have lost their lives. Operation Unisson has been collaborating with a local organization for almost two years in Port Salut, a coastline town in Western Haiti that has been severely affected by Hurricane Matthew. The people of Port Salut make a livelihood on their farmland, all of which was destroyed by Matthew. Additionally, thousands of homes have been damaged, road access is limited, and drinking water sources have been contaminated. Cholera cases are being reported. We need your help. Your donation will help purchase medical supplies, clean water, food and shelter for the thousands of people affected.

Sand Dam Update
We are excited to share photos from our in-country partners, MAP International, in Uganda! Sand dams are a cost-effective method of water conservation. They capture rain-water, store it underground and are currently one of the most effective and sustainable, yet currently under-utilized, methods of water conservation in the world. Your donations and support help us build these and bring access to water in Karamoja, Uganda.
The sixth annual CT Walks for Haiti was a great success. The weather was not on our side but we had the support of about 600 participants who braved the cold and rain. Thank you for all your support for six years! We look forward to next year’s walk to be held April 1, 2017.
CT Walks for Haiti runs an annual walk-a-thon and festival to fund the projects of charities working in Haiti. Since 2010, CT Walks For Haiti has raised over $160,000 for educational, medical and nutritional programs.
