PACO focuses on Haiti for Black History Month

The Pan-African Coalition of Organisations (PACO) and the Grantley Adams Secondary School have teamed up to raise awareness about the ongoing needs of Haiti and how Barbadians can provide assistance that country.

The Haitian project will include a reforestation initiative and the provision of 200 solar cookers over the next two years. The Grantley Adams Secondary School will be responsible for building the solar cookers.

“We decided that we will make an input into Haiti into the deforestation. We are looking at long-term goals in terms of getting help for Haiti . . . we can help with the vegetation in Haiti, and we’re also looking at the solar cooker, instead of using wood,” public relations officer of PACO, Baba John Howell said.

Currently, the Grantley Adams Secondary School has enough supplies to provide 20 solar cookers to the country which was devastated by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

PACO will also be collecting canned and dry goods for Haitians during the next two months.

PACO said it has chosen to focus on Haiti in honour of Black History Month. (KK)

    How many of the countries that promised Haiti money after the earthquake have delivered? That is a good story for the media.

Hillary lost because she was bring up the legacy of Balack Obama. Dumb Donald has proven that whites control America. Now Black Americans are really going to behave like your favorite phrase…..

    Peter, I am not worried at all for my people in the USA, as we will get our day in court. You just keep on the watch.
    They are dealing with terrorist, these same terrorist that placed the crabs in the barrel but they WILL get deliverance. These black men need to start the bull in the china shop rampage, and start with the church. This is why they cannot touch the Muslims because them got unity and heads roll off, and bodies sent to smithereens. And if the ones on the outside is blocked the ones on the inside will bring the carnage. GOOD FOR THEM. Eye for an eye.
    As for Haiti my people you fought the french well but I know full well why you are in this condition, but I am confident things will look up.

    Peter, I am a realist. Weather you see it or not this coming war will be between the Arab/Asian world and America and her allies. Its inevitable. Nations with military might and capabilities, ones who want to show off their weaponry. The thing is when you underestimate the UNDERDOG you shoot yourself in the foot.
