Donate to help stop the spread
of Covid-19 in Haiti
People in Haiti are struggling to prevent the spread of Covid-19, just like all of us here in the United States. With fewer resources and less infrastructure, it's not hard to imagine how much more difficult that struggle is.
PeaceQuilts is helping the effort by working with our partner groups in Haiti, underwriting the cost of producing masks. The women are sewing them from high thread-count quilting cotton, and distributing them at no cost to their families, communities and to healthcare professionals. Each mask costs $2. Donate $10 and 5 people will receive a mask. $20 protects 10 people. Your donation of any size will not only make a meaningful contribution to preventing the spread of this deadly virus, but at the same time, those dollars will keep the women employed so they can continue to support their families during this challenging time.
A donation to PeaceQuilts can also help ensure the women have the tools, equipment and other necessaries they need to earn a living wage and support their families.
You can specify how you would like your donation allocated or let us put your donation to work where most needed.

If you wish to have your donation put toward something specific, let us know OR since the needs of the cooperative groups vary and fluctuate, let us determine where your funds will be best put to use. Remember, your gift of any size will make a difference in the lives of Haitian women and is fully tax-deductible.
