The Othman Ktiri Foundation teams up with the NGO Llevant en Marxa to collaborate in the social housing construction project in the rural community of Onaville, located in Puerto Príncipe (Haiti). This initiative is part of a wider development project that the NGO is working on in this Haiti community.
After the 2010 earthquake which devastated the Caribbean country, part of its population had to relocate and settle in the outskirts of the capital of Haiti, where new rural communities developed. Llevant en Marxa started this development project in the community of Onaville with the construction of six properties for poor families who remain homeless. To qualify for accommodation in these properties, children must be educated in the community school and single mothers and families with disabled children will be given priority. The donation made by the OK Foundation, who were supported by OK Mobility Group via their Corporate Social Responsibility actions, meant that three of these properties could be funded.
One of the families to benefit is husband and wife Chrisnol Demosthene and Manoucheka Diplaicy, and their three children, Wista, Wisnel and Wanderlove. This humble family live from farming in the zone, which can be without rain for three to five months, which can cause drought and famine. With this new property, the NGO aims to help them to improve their living conditions.
The Othman Ktiri Foundation is demonstrating once again their commitment to the most vulnerable in society via the collaboration with Llevant en Marxa, a company which has spent 25 years coordinating charity projects in poor regions of America and Africa and who are now starting this new project in Haiti.
