SAVE LIVES IN HAITI
The transmission of the coronavirus is in the early stages in Haiti, but global health authorities are fearful that the deadly pandemic could unleash widespread famine and civil unrest, not to mention thousands of deaths. “There is real danger of a large-scale outbreak followed further by a humanitarian crisis in Haiti. There is the real risk that growing food insecurity will result in famine. The situation has been described as a perfect storm approaching,” according to Dr. Carissa Etienne, the director of the Pan American Health Organization.
In response to the crisis, my non-profit organization, ISA, has launched PROJECT COVER UP HAITI, a COVID-19 and hunger prevention project. Most Haitians do not have masks to prevent the spread of the virus or enough money to buy food. PROJECT COVER UP HAITI is a women’s entrepreneur project. ISA supplies women in local churches the materials and instructions to make medical masks. The women sell these masks throughout their communities and use the money they earn to feed their families.
Help us save lives and feed hungry families in Haiti. Your generous contribution will go directly to these women. 100% of your donation will be sent by ISA. To donate online, go to https://www.internationalstrategicalliances.org/make-a-difference/. Thank you.
I would love to spend time with you or your group. You can contact me through my personal email, firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be an honor and pleasure.

I was very honored to speak at the Southern Cone TESOL Conference on the important topic of "Understanding Students with Learning Disabilities" The Southern Cone TESOL is a biannual conference organized by different English Language Teaching (ELT) associations in South America, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, and Paraguay. Thank you BRAZ-TESOL and everyone who attended and responded so positively to my speech. I am hoping that it will lead to greater opportunities to serve students with special needs in Brazil.
