Help After Iron Market Fire

The historic Iron Market in Port-au-Prince, Haiti was destroyed when a devastating early-morning fire swept through. Families lost their only source of income as the vendors stalls were reduced to rubble and ash. Operation Blessing selected 20 of these vendors to receive microenterprise assistance to help restart their business. OBI focused on selecting single mothers and women who were the sole providers for their families. With this hand-up, they can start selling, again, and work towards supporting their families once more.
