As promised in my past blog entry, I'm happy to finally be able to share a few of the photos we took when we delivered a package of donations -- including medical supplies, flashlights and whistles -- to our partners in Haiti, KOFAVIV. Using these supplies, gathered through MADRE's Helping Hands program, they have been able to create local security measures that help prevent rapes in the camps for displaced people in Haiti. They have also been able to provide for the basic needs of women and families.
(Click each photo below to enlarge.)
The women opened up the bag with the donations and began passing out the supplies to each other, so that they could distribute them in the camps.
I passed the FlipCam to one of the KOFAVIV members, who then turned it to one of the members who began to explain how the whistles had been used to prevent rapes and to protect women.
