Building Resilience In The Region
Do Good International with the help of volunteers from HandsOn Miami, FIU Caribbean Students Association, Florida Caribbean Students Association, The Children's Trust and friends packed Crayons Count learning kits for kids and schools in Anguilla, Dominica, St. Maarten & USVI. All organizations came together to help their regional neighbours build back after hurricanes. This project was made possible by the Miami Foundation (Caribbean Strong Relief Fund), other donors and logistical partners such as UNICEF in Dominica, Rotary 7020 District Hurricane Relief, Rotary clubs of Anguilla, St. Maarten, USVI, Antilles Freight and Crowley.
Building Institutional Capacity
Do Good International donated a wheelchair, walker, bed wedge and assorted medical supplies to Borinquen Medical Centers of Miami-Dade.
Do Good International, in collaboration with Do Good Jamaica’s early childhood project Crayons Count, hosted a story time event for children aged 3-8 years old at the Little Haiti Cultural Center, Miami Heat Learn and Play Room. This was a special children’s story time event designed to help build resilience - Hurricane Heroes – an interactive session with storytelling, group discussions, drawing and coloring.
