Hurricane Matthew – visit to Jérémie & Grand Anse

After collecting food, clothing and medical supplies Rea Dol together with members of Sopu Fanm pou Fanm and SOPUDEP For Life, left for Jérémie and the village of Despagne on Friday 14th October.  They expected to spend at least three days in the village and surrounding  communities meeting with people and delivering supplies.   Unfortunately 4 hours from Jérémie they were in a car accident and were unable to continue.  Fortunately no one was seriously hurt and they were able to return to Port-au-Prince but they plan to make the trip as soon as they can get another truck.
