Money for Haiti
Bruce Leeming, founding member and director of Friends of Île à Vache Haiti, speaks at a fundraising event at Cape Breton University. The Canadian non-profit organization is holding a series of fundraising events around the world, in light of the recent earthquake in Haiti. Funds raised will go toward the group’s ongoing efforts to help the region, including sustainable fish farms, crop experiments aimed at increasing yields and the installation of water cisterns to provide clean drinking water. Friends of Île à Vache are also working to develop a marine park to encourage tourism as a way of providing much needed foreign currency to their economy.
