C2C inProgress Report: We have a response plan for COVID-19 in Petit Goâve, Haïti

Introduction

The Community2Community (C2C) New York team is working with our collaborative partners for our COVID-19 Response. C2C is not a relief organization.  We are a service and development organization that responds to the needs of our Partner Communities in a way that:

  • Values their voices
  • Honors their dignity
  • Stays true to our mission of “creating self-sufficient communities by working with the community”

We accomplish this goal by listening to our C2C Haïti Team and Partner Communities. We also partner with other organizations to respond to short-term needs and design and execute sustainable long-terms solutions.

Phase 1: SHORT-TERM PLAN

Secure emergency items and provide funds for the Peasant Associations of each Partner Community to purchase items on the ground to create COVID-19 Response Packets for their communities. The Collaborative Response plan will be executed via our current initiatives:

Continuous Care Initiative:

  • COVID-19 Prevention Response Packets
  • COVID-19 Training Materials

 Water & Sanitation Initiative:  

  • Water Station Supplies

Economic Development Initiative:

  • Mask Production Equipment and Materials

Phase 2: LONG-TERM PLAN

Support our Partner Communities to plan and execute their longer term sustainable solutions to continue addressing their COVID-19 needs. We plan to:

  1. Raise funds to secure protective gear for medical personnel, midwives and Peasant Association health committee members.
  2. Train Peasant Associations on COVID-19 protocols to empower their communities.
  3. Support Peasant Associations to disseminate COVID-19 Response Packets; each containing one pair of gloves, one mask and one bar of soap.
  4. Purchase handwashing stations to distribute throughout Petit Goâve and neighboring towns.

Helping our Partner Communities defeat COVID-19 requires access to clean water, proper sanitation and healthcare.  Adapting and adjusting our focus to address COVID-19 will allow our Partner Communities to continue on the road to self-sufficiency.
