Haiti was the first independent black nation in the western hemisphere and being of Haitian descent comes with a strong sense of pride. It breaks my heart to see the state of Haiti in the wake of Hurricane Matthew and as the devastation mounted I knew I had to do my part to help.
Brandon Camille is partnering with GAI Sports and DirectlyTo to help fund the Haiti relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. The money from this campaign will be donated to the Gaskov Clergé Foundation. The Gaskov Clergé Foundation has been appointed by the Mayor of Les Cayes, Haiti to be responsible for collecting all disaster relief funds and facilitating relief efforts by the Haitian Diaspora.
Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti on Tuesday, October 4th as a category four hurricane.
An estimated 350,000 people have been affected, with 15,623 displaced people living in shelters.
The main road that connects the capital, Port-au-Prince, with Haiti's devastated southern peninsula, broke apart when a bridge collapsed Tuesday, severely hampering relief efforts.
At least 877 Haitians have been confirmed dead and that number is still rising.
The average yearly income in Haiti is $817 compared to just over $53k in the United States. Right now, the Haitians are in dire need of basic resources, such as food, water, first aid & hygiene kits, and medications.
