Hands Off Haiti CD

handsoffhaiti.jpg

The “Hands Off Haiti” compilation album is a project of the Canada Haiti Action Network (CHAN), a grassroots group of activists based in most provinces across Canada that have actively been involved in Haiti solidarity work since 2004.

Funds raised from sales of the “Hands Off Haiti” compilation album go directly to the Haitian-based grassroots organizations and efforts including the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund, Partners in Health and the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti.

CHAN supports the list of principles outlined at the international Kongres Bwa Kayiman (KBK) conference of February, 2005, in which Haiti solidarity activists from various countries reiterated their support for Haitian democracy.
