Who: Farouk Shami, Maria Bello (co-founder of the We Advance organization), Patricia Arquette (co-founder of Give Love), the Sow a Seed organization, and other Hollywood celebrities including Kim Kardashian.
What: Haitian families and children received early gifts this season when the Farouk systems founder landed in Port-au-Prince recently on a plane stocked with 1,000 CHI Organic kits, hygiene and medical supplies, and other basic necessities for a relief trip. The team visited the Artists for Peace & Justice School, replenished supplies at the We Advance clinics, and met the president of Haiti, Michel Martelly, to discuss current affairs in the country.
Soundbite: “I am extremely grateful, and humbled, that we are able to provide and be a part of this incredible opportunity. To be able to give the gifts of clean water, health care and hygiene products is inexplicable. Daily necessities most people take for granted are life-changing items in Haiti.” – Farouk Shami
Where & When: December 8-11 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
