Zaterdag 14 augustus 2021 trof een verwoestende aardbeving van 7,2 op de schaal van Richter het westen van Haïti. Volgens lokale autoriteiten zijn er op dit moment ruim 1.400 doden en 7.000 gewonden. Duizenden huizen zijn zwaar beschadigd of ingestort en toegangswegen en ziekenhuizen zijn beschadigd of onbereikbaar. Mensen blijven nu op straat omdat ze bang zijn voor naschokken. Daarnaast is er een tekort aan schoon drinkwater. Gelukkig lijkt de intensiteit van tropische storm Grace minder groot dan verwacht, maar er is veel regen gevallen wat tot overstromingen en modderstromen kan leiden en de situatie kan verergeren.Habitat Haïti begint zo snel mogelijk met het coördineren van noodhulpacties; ze zijn al jaren actief in de regio. Onze collega’s ter plekke zijn op dit moment gelukkig veilig. Doneer nu voor Haiti >> Onze eerste hulp bestaat uit: assessment van beschadigde huizen (zijn ze nog bewoonbaar, welke directe oplossing voor onderdak is nodig, kan de beschadiging op termijn worden gerepareerd of moet er nieuw worden gebouwd?) het uitdelen van shelterkits zodat mensen niet in de openlucht hoeven te slapen ‘Hygiene’ kits, om het verspreiden van ziektes te voorkomen. Hierin werken wij samen met andere (lokale) partijen.Zodra het kan starten we met de wederopbouw van huizen in het getroffen gebied. Wij willen zoveel mogelijk mensen zo snel mogelijk een veilig onderkomen bieden.Jouw hulp is daarbij hard nodig!

It’s nearly go time. Hoping for gold at the end of this rainbow.

03-12-2022 | 23:26 Posted on: Sundance #5. Valencia Marathon 2022. Homes for those fleeing Ukraine. Just 10 hours to go until this marathon. No matter how much you train or how much you want to do something like this, there's a time where you start to question things. So much meticulous planning goes into a challenge like this, and you try to account for as much as you can to eliminate variables so things go well. Have you done enough training, rested enough, and prepared properly? Have you eaten the right foods so you have enough energy stores without having to make a million pit stops? Do you have enough sports gels, electrolytes and chews? Is your phone charged? Did you write down your emergency contact names and numbers and bring your ID and medical card in case of emergencies? And on and on it goes.  My stuff is set out for my 5:45am wake up call, and yet still I don't feel ready. But I saw a little rainbow today, and I'm pretty sure that was my grandmother sending me a message from above that she's proud of me for getting this far and that it's all going to be OK. That's the thought I'm going to take with me as my 'emotional fuel' to power me forward tomorrow. And even if my confidence is not super high going into this thing, I'm happy I've come this far. It's a bit like falling in love. If you don't try, you'll never know what might be out there for you. At a certain point, you just need to jump in feet first and go for it. That's what I'll do tomorrow in Valencia, Spain.  I'd like to send a very sincere thank you to all of you who have helped me get to 58% of my fundraising goal for Habitat for Humanity. No matter what happens with this run, families will have shelter as they flee the war in the Ukraine. And that honestly makes it worth the effort. As I was feeling bad about not making it to my fundraising goal, my friend said today that if I only finish 58% of this marathon, then at least I will have met the investment of my financiers. 🤣 That made me laugh. It's good to see the humor in all of this. I still hope that I'll complete the full 42 kilometers tomorrow. And if you've read this far and can afford to contribute even a small amount, please do. A big part of me thinks we will still get to the fundraising goal too. That's because a marathon makes you start believing in miracles. It inspires you to push further and try harder. And it makes you realize that everyone can play a part in your success.  We can do huge things when we do them together. Thank you again for supporting me and this important cause. Jill Donate now
