Things are, it turns out, not very good up in Bay Tourib, the very rural, mountainous area where I work. We have numerous CLM members who lost either livestock or crops to Hurricane Sandy.
If you know people who would like to help, they can send donations to Fonkoze USA. It can be done through the website, www.fonkoze.org. You can specify that you want the donation to go to CLM/Asset Replacement.
