Since 2010 we have all contributed to the worthy cause of raising funds to aid and support the people of Haiti so dramatically affected by the earthquake. 
 
October 2016 saw Hurricane Matthew, destroy homes, displace communities and leave many parts of the south-west cut off from the rest of the country. Hundreds of people have lost their lives and the numbers continue to rise.
 
Donations received from the local community in Birmingham have been well received in Haiti
 
 
      
 
 
 
 
 To date we have raised thousands of pounds, these funds have been sent direct to FF to support their work, in particular: providing food supplies to camp residents, distributing soup across the provinces, and supporting the volunteers.
Lets do all we can to continue the work and contribute much needed help to those most in need.
 
             
 
We have also sent several barrels containing carefully selected donations from the community

In May 2015,  we were invited to attend a community event and had the opportunity to promote awareness of the ongoing work being done by Friends of Fondation Felicite (FFF). At the event we were also able to raise funds through sales of our range of T-shirts.

Great Black Women with Dr Runoko Rashidi

2013

 

 

 

Saturday 1st June 2013, saw a rich gathering of people, from Birmingham and beyond, attend a community event led by renowned scholar and historian  Dr Runoko Rashidi. The purpose of the gathering was to celebrate Great Black Women, the world over and show the particular importance of Empress Felicite to our organisation. The night began with a presentation highlighting the strengths and extraordinary  achievements of Empress Felicite, the wife of Emperor Dessalines, setting out how and why she came to be the Pillar behind  Fondation

Felicite the organisation that inspired the birth of Friends of Fondation Felicite (FFF). 

Empress Felicite remains a leading figure in Haitian culture and history.The main feature of the evening was of course Dr Runoko Rashidi. Dr Rashidi, had specifically chosen to deliver a striking visual presentation of the external and inner beauty of Black African women around the world. He made it clear that too often the positive contributions of black women are overlooked. 

 

Dr Rashidi reminded us that is it not  necessary material wealth or professional achievement that make Black Women great, but a sense of self, integrity and ability to make a difference that we should really honour and celebrate. 

 

We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank all who have and continue to support FFF.

Celebrating A Birthday 
By Supporting A Cause
 

 

In 2012 Josie Parker celebrated her birthday, by asking friends to join her for a sponsored 10 mile walk in the hills of Malvern, a parish in Worcestershire.Together they raised a whopping £510. This is Josie's third fund raising event to support our work in Haiti. In 2010 she initiated a series of workshops to engage the community in drumming and the to mark the anniversary of the quake, last year Josie underwent a 36 hour sponsored fast and silence which raised £400. Truly she is a star! We say a big thank you to Josie and all those who joined and supported her efforts.

Taking part in a running event is an amazing personal challenge, and it's even better if you're doing it for a cause. We want to say a special thanks to Fit4Life and Ace Fitness, Berimma Sankofa and Ezra Taylor and the rest of the team for their continued support of our work in Haiti.


The running clubs took to the scenic route of Sandwell Valley; with each runner wearing one of our Haiti t-shirts.  With every mile ran the team raised much needed funds to support Fondation Félicité in Haiti. Keep up the community spirit and ethos of each one help one.
