Looking for information on where Novitas Foundation has been recently and how you have helped?
While the word “micro” may bring to mind something small, there’s no discounting the huge impact a micro-business can have. The effects are felt not only by those involved in the day-to-day operations of the business, but also by the community in which they live and beyond.
As the border region of Maban County in South Sudan struggles due to dwindling food supplies, Novitas Foundation had the opportunity to assist with food aid for a substantial number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees in the area.
With your support, Novitas Foundation delivered and oversaw the distribution of relief aid, including children’s coats, acetaminophen, flashlights, bandages, and over 40,000 pounds of nutritional children’s food which will provide as many as 570,000 meals to children in a remote area of Northeast Asia.
You made it possible for us to fund a number of sustainable development projects in Cuba. These projects included books for a literacy program, a horse and cart for community development, sanitary restroom facilities, and a number of water projects.
After previous unsuccessful attempts to drill wells on the property only to hit bedrock, residents had resorted to using rainwater collected in 2 small tanks which quickly ran out. Water then had to be trucked in at a significant cost from a town around 1/2 mile away. Thanks to your support, construction of a 30,000 gallon water storage tank outside the community of San Miguel Albarradas in Oaxaca, Mexico, was completed in 2016. The new tank stores rainwater collected during the rainy season and provides year-round access to water at a remote camp serving native Zapoteco and Chatino children and teens, as well as nearby villagers.
