Japanese reaching out to Haitians for rebuilding

Aug 30, 2010

We are hearing less and less about Haiti these days. It has been six months since the earthquake struck. Yet our colleagues in Japan have continued their efforts to help the 1.5 million Hatians refugees displaced by this disaster.

In April, Amway Japan contributed $80,000 to the Japanese orgaization called JEN to support reconstruction.

JEN has completed the distribution of a “shelter kit” to protect families from rain and wind prior to the hurricane season. In May, JEN began to restore water facilities in Grand Gorve and Leogane (located in the western part of the capital, Port-au-Prince) with Amway’s donation. This made it possible for children to drink safe and clean water. In addition, JEN implemented mental care and hygiene education programs incorporating training on disaster prevention.

With our support, this recontruction contract will continue until the end of this year.

In the next few weeks, Amway will announce a rebuilding project through our One by One Campaign for Children that will allow our distributors, employees and customers to participate in a project to help orphaned children in Haiti.

Stay tuned!
