Lovius Joseph pulls a donkey in Picmy, a village on the Haitian island of La Gonave, where Service Chrétien d’Haïti, with support from PWS&D, is working with survivors of Hurricane Matthew, which struck the region in 2016. SCH is a member of the ACT Alliance. Donkeys are an important part of SCH’s emergency response on La Gonave. They provide families with transportation along rocky hillsides, helping them get their agricultural harvest to market and helping women carry water long distances.
