Please Support Alikay Cares Foundation Haiti Recovery Project

Alikay Cares Foundation has launched the Haiti Recovery Project to assist in providing essential resources to the families who were severely impacted by the devastation from Hurricane Matthew. The foundation has been clothes, food and non-perishable items locally in Fort Myers, Florida at Be Fabulous Salon. There has been a tremendous amount of support from the community. In addition, Alikay Cares Foundation has set up a GoFundMe page to accept monetary donations. The items will be sent in barrel drums to Haiti and then delivered to the cities of Les Cayes and Jaymes as well as surrounding areas.

Team Members from Be Fabulous Salon and Alikay Naturals will be traveling to Haiti on November 7th to distribute the donations alongside government officials. These same team members have families who were affected by Hurricane Matthew.

There is still much work to be done. Monetary donations will be accepted up until the November 7th.

Any amount will help.
