October 8th, 2016. Let’s help Haiti in the aftermath of hurricane Matthew!!

•June 13, 2013 • Leave a Comment

The southern parts of Haiti were hit hard by hurricane Matthew. The small island of Ile-a-Vache suffered incredible devastation and the images we are receiving are heartbreaking. Entire villages were destroyed and recovery efforts will be especially difficult since the island can only be reached by boat.

Papaloko4Kids is collecting: non-perishable food, water, baby food, diapers, batteries, toiletries, first-aid kits, tools, clothes, shoes and more to send there.

We will deliver these donations directly to the people on the ground in Haiti with the help of Captain Ray Thackeray of the International Rescue Group.

Please help us help them and bring your donations to:
Papaloko4Kids Inc., non-profit org.
154 NW 37th St. – MIAMI
(Wynwood area)
I’ll be there from 10 am to 6 pm
Please call first @ 786-312-5947

You can also make monetary donations to Papaloko4Kids via PayPal.

All your contributions will go directly to the people in Haiti to buy supplies, building materials and other necessities on site

Every dollar, every penny counts!!! No contribution is too small….

If you would like to contribute, you can do so by donating to Papaloko4Kids through PayPal

YOU HAVE OUR IMMENSE GRATITUDE AND THE GRATITUDE OF THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN HAITI
