you have joined us at Haiti Gardens then you know, or know of, Moliere, one of
the hardest working men I've ever known—our groundskeeper who some say can
individually do the work of one-dozen volunteers…remember that?
Moliere is one of our most valuable human
resources at Haiti Gardens. Moliere contributes to bettering the entire
surrounding community with his array of skills and tirelessness.
He maintains security
at the property and the vegetation we are growing. He lives on site with his teenage daughter
who is also becoming very helpful at Haiti Gardens. They and their well-being are vital parts to the
success of Haiti Gardens.
we had to layoff Moliere for
almost 6months in 2012. This is why we
are writing an appeal to people we know, and who know of Moliere.
Moliere is back on the property with his daughter as they prepare for many new
developments at Haiti Gardens this summer.
His wage is currently $120US/Month, which equates to $4/day and just
under $1500US/year. This is obviously a
very low wage compared to what we think of as a living wage in the "developed"
world but has been enough, with subsidized housing, for Moliere to provide for
himself and his daughter.
you see, a few dollars to many folks in North America, Europe, and parts of
Australia, could mean a world of difference to Moliere.
Please consider donating what you can to our
friend and counterpart who is, with the very little he has, continuing to make
Haiti a better place for ALL who live there.
you for your consideration. We could not
bring about positive change in disaster-affected areas of developing nations
without help from great supporters like you.
