    Are the people from LemonAID able to supply the people of TrouJacques with any assistance?

    We keep hearing no aid has reached them since January & my requests for information at the Scotland site go unanswered.

    Thank you.

    I rc’d e-mail 3/24/10 stating: “Fr. Roosevelt Leriche of Pointe-a-Raquette has delivered food to Trou Jacques on two occasions”. And that, if food can be sent, & $ for transportation, a trusted person can deliver it where needed.

    Trou Jaques needs a steady supply of aid, as they have many from PaP swelling their number. They were already extremely poor. They need the same care as the northwest part of the island, but no group seems inclined to serve them.

    I left emails for LemonAID on 3 different days and never even had the courtesy of a reply. What would it have cost them to email me a message saying they weren’t able to help?
    Finding many outfits won’t reply. Disheartening, to put it politely.

    Do you have the food and need it delivered? If so, contact BiBiMu above.
    If not, check with the missionaries who have a presence on the island.

    My husband and I were Long Term Volunteers who lived in Soursafilip La gonave from Oct 2007 to oct 2009. We returned in January and were in PaP during the eq….we were just on La Gonave for 2 weeks the first of April. Our report…all markets are open and selling food but at higher prices. The crops are sparce, there has been little rain and cisterns are mostly cracked and leaking. We have a good well at sousafilip that is serving 7 to 12 communities on the south side..including Pwent a Racquet. Trou Jacques was part of our territory as there is a Haitian Methodist School there that are very broken and they get all water from Pimy. We have tried to get teams there with no success. For information about developing industry and needs on the south west of la gonave contact Ocule Wilter, AAPLAG in Ansagale or Peter Graff with Service Chrestian also works with AAPLAG. I can provide phone numbers for people on the southwest and for leadership of AAPLAG.
    Asside from the Catholic Church and us…the last 2 and a half years there has been little done on the south west. We have repaired the well at Dent Griern with a solar energy system and LOTS of other work …but during the eq a cable was lost and we are now waiting for a replacement from the US.

    I’m not sure where all these contacts have been while we were living and struggling on the island but is is wonderful to hear there is someone else doing something…AND SOUTH LA GONAVE IS THE REMOTEST OF REMOTE. Go for it and let us know how we can help…we still have some resourses and finances for food and water. Shirley Edgerton, GBGM Long Term Volunteer, La Gonave
