Hunger and poor sanitation touches many communities, especially those who have been affected by natural disasters. Haiti is one such country which has suffered greatly by earthquake and most recently, a hurricane in 2018. The smaller communities tend to be the last served and asks for help. Jeremie town, Haiti is approx. 117 miles from the capital and in need of assistance. El Cajon Sunset will partner with Jeremie Charitable Foundation based in Fort Lauderdale, FL. They are an "on the ground" non-profit which provides nutritional assistance and sanitation items for 2 schools and an orphanage. The children are currently in makeshift classrooms where learning is challenging. "We also believe that education is a companion which no future can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate it and no nepotism can enslave" Joseph Addison, English Poet, (1672-1719)
