Understanding the impact of your donation:
Haiti has the highest rabies burden in the western hemisphere. In the USA we have controlled the disease in our domestic animal population with a robust vaccination program. When individuals are bitten by a suspect rabid animal, life-saving post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is initiated immediately. In Haiti access to PEP is extremely limited. Without PEP anyone bitten by a rabid animal will become neurologic and die. Unfortunately children are the most common victims of rabies. We vaccinate all animals that we work with. Help us save lives by donating $95, which is the cost of 25 doses of rabies vaccines.
It costs roughly $300 – 400 USD to send a child to school each year in Haiti. Donating $200 USD will allow us to provide basic veterinary care (routine deworming and vaccinations) for a family herd of 5 goats for one year. This will enable a family to sell 4 of these goats for $80 USD per goat ($320 total) and send a child to school for the year.
