HAITIAN METAL ARTS SALE TO BENEFIT KONBIT SANTE
Konbit Sante will hold a Haitian Metal Art sale on Saturday, December 8th at the Parish Hall Theater in Portland. Volunteers will be selling metal art and other Haitian handicrafts. The art was created from 55-gallon steel oil drums that have been cleaned, flattened, cut by hand and intricately patterned. Konbit Sante buys the art directly from the artists for a fair price and then uses the profits from sales to fund their work.
Since 2001, Konbit Sante staff and volunteers have worked in collaboration with the Haitian Ministry of Health and other partners to build local capacity in all aspects of the health system, from door-to-door community outreach programs, to strengthening community health centers, to improving care at the regional referral hospital.
