ORE Hurricane Matthew Relief Program

Your support for the humanitarian relief program following Hurricane Matthew is making it possible to assist the hundreds of thousands of people in the South and Grande Anse departments of Haiti.
ORE is providing pure drinking water from our deep well/bottling facility, helping to repair homes and offer food and shelter to those most in need. In order to ensure there will be food and income in the near future we are also supplying seeds to farmers as they have lost their crops and their seed stocks.
The seeds being distributed are a variety of vegetable seeds, and also improved seeds bred by ORE in Haiti. All our seeds are naturally bred, open population, never GMO, never hybrids. They are bred using age-old traditional methods to select for higher yield so that the improved seeds perform well even with low-fertilization and rainfed conditions. The improved seeds include high yield local corn seeds, QPM quality protein corn (originally from CIMMYT in Mexico), high yield sweet potatoes, vitamin A rich sweet potatoes, high yield sorghum and bean seeds.
We would like to give our heart-felt thanks to all the volunteers who are giving their time so generously, and all the donors who personally contributed their gifts to make this all possible. God bless you all.
