Honor Dad by Helping Haitian Dads Save Lives

Dear Friend,

What better way to honor Dad for always being there than by helping Haitian dads save their kids’ lives? Please donate today to keep fathers in Haiti fighting to stop cholera deaths.

Haitian Fathers are forcing the United Nations (UN), which brought cholera to Haiti, to provide the water and sanitation infrastructure that is the only long-term solution to the cholera epidemic (and making progress, click here for details). Attorneys at the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI)—Mario Joseph (father of Mayina, Marcia and Marcy), Bazelais Thevenot (father of Jame Sthève Bazelais and Grover Thiery)—have teamed up with fathers like Tuné, who watched his son die of cholera. They filed a historic lawsuit against the UN; they are demonstrating in the streets, holding press conferences, and urging their elected officials to join them (watch them advocate in this compelling 6-minute video).

Last summer my 3 year-old son Evan caught a minor bug that landed him in the hospital with dehydration. I was grateful that our healthcare access made his treatment routine (listen to my podcast). But I was deeply saddened that back in Haiti, fathers like me were helpless to stop their kids–and their siblings, partners and parents—from dying by the thousands of cholera and other easily preventable and treatable diseases.

The Haitian Dads are fighting with a father’s love, strength and persistence. But they need your financial support for court fees, modest salaries and travel to the remote areas where cholera is raging. Please keep them fighting by making a generous donation in honor of your father today.

Most sincerely,

Brian Concannon Jr.
(Georgia and Evan’s Dad)

PS  Thank you to all of our supporters who have already supported our fight against cholera!
