My father was killed in Haiti in 1990 shortly before work began on our shared dream to restore basic dignities to people living in squalor. After he died, the dream haunted me, but I didn’t know what to do with it. Honestly I still don’t, but I’m following the inspiration: “Do what’s possible and what’s impossible becomes possible”, and a very complicated problem is looking less complex. I lit my candle and kept going and I’m certain there’s a light at the end of the tunnel because as Leonard Cohen said “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”
I have two projects very dear to my heart in the Caribbean.
One is focused on Sister Dona and rebuilding her school in Kenskoff, Haiti. The school housed 100 students and now houses 6 because it is in a disastrous state of disrepair. We need $10,000 to repair the damage and bring the children’s home.
The other is helping the Arhuaco, Kogi, Wiwa and Kankuamo of the Sierra Nevada to do what they do best, 24/7, care for our Mother – earth.
