Fundación Salvavidas in Haiti
We just returned from our land voyage into Haiti. Our
trip lasted several days in the apocalyptic Haiti. Our objective was to evaluate the needs of this hurting
community and their animals, due to the devastating earthquake that destroyed this nation.
We traveled through Port-au-Prince to ground zero: Léogáne, Petit Goave, Croix-des-Bouquets
and all their sectors, including Fond Parisien, Thomazeau, Delman 33 hasta 54 and Pétion-Ville, as well as
walking through the makeshift tent camps (erradicated in garbage dumps). We saw their needs: their hunger, their
health, where the so mentioned aide has not reached the public. We shared, under these makeshift tents, with its
survivors and their animals, many of which are dehydrating, mal-nutrient, are sick and in need of vetenary
attention. Needless to say, none of the animal health organizations have come by any of these camps.
If the Haitian people are hungry, what can we say about their animals. They rummage for food
and drink through garbage dumps, where we found most biting pieces of carton.
Upon arriving Haiti, we came across many cows and bulls walking along side lake Eiang
Saumatre, a salt water reserve, looking for food and drink, and trying to find shade in an almost all desolate town
of beaming sun. They were lost, alone and with nowhere to go.
We traveled in peace, meeting the sick and hurt, welcoming us with open arms and grand
hospitality. This is a country in need of our help. We have a commitment, not only of Fundacion Salvavidas,
but of all individuals that serve and profess helping those in need. Let us help Haiti.

Our Priority: Mobile Clinic
The need for a mobil clinic in our country is vital. We are a poor country with a
lot of vetenary needs in all cities and towns of our republic. Our communities do not have the funds or resources
to save our animals.
It is our most urgent need to integrate a fully equiped mobile clinic to allow us
to serve our communities with the veternary needs their animals deserve, as well as facilitate the sterilization
and various surgeries needed in the country.
Your donation is vital in order for us to purchase this mobil clinic. With it, we
can put into effect our campaign for mobil vaccines, sterilizations, and general vetenary needs. This, in order to
cure, save, control cruelty that our animals are suffering.
Your generous donations will help that our work will reach more towns and animals
in our country and help those that can't speak for themselves.
