Monday, December 5th, 2016:

The week of 11/28 was our last week of food and water distribution. We made that decision along with La Mairie Des Cayes to start focusing on restoring additional school roof tops so more children from the rural communities can return to school. We also received several requests from both La Mairie and the citizens of Les Cayes to empower the city by providing them with the equipment needed for debris removal from the hurricane and for continued waste Management. The funds we have left will be spent on those two priorities because these areas of interventions will have a lasting and substantial impact on the town. As always, We thank YOU, for the continued support and trust in our team.

During the week of 11/28, GCF's distribution went as follows:
