Petit a petit…
We get there step by step. Although corny, these words have never been so true. ECLAT has took its time to get to where it is at right now. In between getting legalized, planning our fundraiser and focusing on our next step, there has been a lot of difficult moments. Having gone through them is not an issue, the team believes it is what keeps u stronger and more focused.
Some of you witnessed on June 5th how we operate. Our purpose on this day was to be as transparent as possible. Through that, we exposed not only our story, but more importantly our deepest intentions. Although long and a bit unpractical, we appreciated every word that was said, every gesture, every person right down to the last smile what we received. These small moments were the ones who made us believe once more in our cause. ECLAT will bring change, will bring comfort, will bring water to Cotes de Fer, and all of this will be possible thanks to your solidarity and your generous hearts.
For us, that was a victory. We had a lower number of attendance when compared to our previous year. Nonetheless, the ones who were here are the ones who mattered. Our donations were $2000 more this year. We were so grateful and humbled by your gesture.
ECLAT has never stopped. As we speak, we are in contact with various groups in Haiti. We want to find the best approach in order to start that long awaited water pump. We hear so much that “Haiti se yon teren glise” however we never thought of getting crampons. That is our next step.
I invite you to keep #StandingWithECLAT, check our webpage and social media page. The change is near. We are closer than you think.
