    Okap Cheri (My Beloved Cap-Haitien) is a fundraiser by Vil Okap for Konbit Sante Cap-Haitien Health Partnership to provide resources for emergency care at Justinien University Hospital (JUH). The hospital—the only teaching hospital in North Haiti and the second-largest public hospital in the entire country—serves the Greater Cap-Haitien community (Okap) and beyond, and is Konbit Sante’s oldest healthcare partner.

    Even during normal times, Haitian doctors, nurses, and other health workers face many challenges providing care to their communities in the context of ongoing economic hardship and a very precarious healthcare system. In the era of COVID-19, things are even more difficult. The lack of functioning equipment and essential supplies and medicines contribute to poorer outcomes for patients seeking help in intensive care units, emergency rooms, and maternity wards in Haitian hospitals.

    You can help JUH by providing funding for its most pressing needs, including:

    • Technicians to repair medical equipment
    • Essential pharmaceuticals for at-risk patients
    • Medical supplies such as personal protective equipment
    • Oxygen containers and concentrators for use during power outages

    Okap Cheri is a multimedia campaign running through October 2020, and commemorates the 350th anniversary of Cap-Haitien and the 200th anniversary of the death of Henri Christophe, one of Haiti's founding fathers. Daily activities are posted to Vil Okap's Facebook page here. You can participate by:

    1. Record a short video (30 seconds or less). Feel free to make it yours; add a personal touch.
    2. Describe your connection with Cap-Haitien (born, adopted, friend, inspired, influenced, etc.).
    3. Tell why you love Cap-Haitien.
    4. Confirm participation/contribution to the campaign and explain why.
    5. Motivate others to contribute and challenge 1 to 3 other influencers (by name) to participate.
    6. Share to Vil Okap's Facebook page here.
