  • This initiative is part of a wider development project that the NGO Llevant en Marxa started in the Haiti community of Onaville (Puerto Príncipe)

The Othman Ktiri Foundation once again 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.

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. Founder Othman Ktiri celebrated the launch of this project which “once again, highlights the fundamental work that Organisations such as Llevant en Marxa carry out in the poorest regions of the world. The OK Foundation is proud to be able to collaborate again with this Majorcan company, with whom we share the same values and social commitment, and the same objective: to contribute to the economic and social development of these communities”.

The President of NGO Llevant en Marxa, Antoni Mesquida, stated that “the construction of these properties is the first of many actions that we are going to carry out in Onaville to guarantee the integral development of this community. In this regard, we shall work on health, education, food and access to drinking water. But first we wish to provide homes to families with scarce economic resources, something which is already a reality thanks to the support of our collaborators, such as the OK Foundation”.

The Othman Ktiri Foundation once again demonstrates their commitment to the poorest communities by collaborating with Llevant en Marxa, a company which has spent 25 years coordinating humanitarian actions in poor regions of America and Africa and who are now starting this new project in Haiti.
