There are many ECHO members and partner organizations responding with immediate relief to the damage in the Caribbean caused by Hurricane Matthew. ECHO is supporting the recovery efforts by equipping, training, and connecting partners, old and new, with resources and techniques that will have a vital impact in the lives of small-scale farming families in Haiti.
As relief efforts draw to a close in the coming months, ECHO's role will become even more important. Sustainable development takes time and careful thought, empowering farmers to become even more resilient to the next storm. Through hands-on trainings and the sharing of resources in Creole, Spanish, and English, farmers will be encouraged, and harvests will be improved. Fields are being replanted, and intentional choice of seed, technique, and timing will be necessary. Through many partners, ECHO will continue it's 36-year history of equipping small-scale farmers with the resources that they need.
