Nearly two thousand dollars raised for Haiti at CP Concordia screening


Last night we screened Aristide and the Endless Revolution at Concordia and had Nick from Haiti Action Montreal and Vox Smbou from Nomadic Massive introduce the night. The screening was a last minute addition to our regular weekly Monday night screening schedule, and despite it being a Friday (when people are busy and the campus is generally empty) we had over 300 people show up.

In total we raised $1,675 which will be donated to Zanmi Lasante/Partners in Health next week. More screenings of Artistide continue throughout the CP Network and all are being organized to raise money for relief efforts in Haiti.

About Zanmi Lasante/Partneres in Health: The Zanmi Lasante medical center is located in the Central Plateau of Haiti and delivers health care through a network of clinics in that region of the country. It also trains Haitians as doctors and health professionals. The health center survived the earthquake and is moving to deliver aid to the disaster zone. Update: PIH is now running Haiti’s public hospital in Port-au-Prince.  PIH has also released a statement calling for organizations to offer aid that respects human rights in Haiti. To donate, go here. Donations in the U.S. are tax deductible. By mail, send cheque with “Haiti Earthquake Relief” in the memo line to:
