Youth in Dominica Create Song for Haiti
The four members – Jevon Davis (President), Aamir Aaron Augustine (Vice President), Anderson Angol and Curwin Breedy (singers) – got together one Saturday and within a weekend had completed their song, ‘Haiti.’
By the following Monday, the song was at the radio stations and being played throughout the country. The group then sought funding from Youth Development Division and were able to produce 300 CDs.
50% of profits go to the Clean Water Campaign for Haiti.
The Clean Water Campaign is organized by Lifeline Ministries (headed by Tina Alexander). It is a EC$20,000.00 project where portable water filters are being purchased at 30% of cost. Geest is shipping them from England to Santo Domingo, DR for FREE and the organization has to arrange to get the filters to Haiti. The plan is to have a portable filter at every church so that there will be clean drinking water available.
