Hurricane Matthew has wreaked havoc in Haiti, hitting areas that still have not fully recovered from the earthquake there in 2010. It goes without saying that the most vulnerable people in this situation are the children of Port-au-Prince, in particular Cite Soleil, one of the most disadvantaged areas in the Western Hemisphere.
RAJEPRE School, founded in 2006 by Winter Luc, is a school and community organization dedicated to creating opportunities for young people in Cite Soleil. The school was badly damaged by the storm, and as a community hub, is in particular need of funds to help rebuild and assist the community (direct donation info).
Please join us at Mirus Gallery for a one-night fundraiser and silent art auction benefitting RAJEPRE and the community of Cite Soleil. This is an amazing opportunity to bid on works from major Bay Area artists while helping the people of Cite Soleil during this trying time.
