Rebuilding Communities Affected by Disaster






SIDRS is in desperate need for its own transport to get food, supplies and seed throughout Haiti.
 Rental fees are killing us
Please donate to help us help others



Update - Feb 2018

Puerto Rico

SIDRS has now delivered 1,350,000 meals to Puerto Rico and has partners on the ground distributing the food and the seed to all corners of the island!!

Below is Puerto Rico team and theyíve even started a soup kitchen!!


Baguette, Haiti

The community of Baguette is cut off from roads, leaving only a tiny foot path that takes hours to even seek medical attention..extremely poor fishing village without even a school. Boat access is always depending how rough the sea is. Knowing this place is remote and rarely sees any assistance if any. Sidr sent a team over to distribute food.

As we are distributing food and seed and tools here in Haiti. The time has come to get a reliable vehicle to reach communities further afield. Rentals are cost prohibitive and not an effective use of You, the donors, funds!! We have struggled for years renting pickups and using our motorcycles as much as possible  but now we have more to give and no economical way to deliver it.

We seriously need a pickup of our own so that we can do more!! Tree seedlings. Water purification systems and of course food.

And we canít do it without you!!

Please donate!!






Update - December2017

Today I moved the last of the cargo to the staging area for shipment to Haiti. And also felt the joy and relief of seeing our 1,350,000 meals be shrink wrapped and immediately loaded on a container bound for Puerto Rico!! 

This shows the world how quickly small groups can be enormously effective in disaster relief!! Iím actually feeling quite emotional now that this food is loaded and on its way!! Itís been a long road and the humanity and kindness these folks have shown this wee Canadian grassroots gal is amazing. Endless gratitude and look forward to working together long term to make this world a bit better !!

It all began with Cyclone Sidr in Bangladesh,where we became involved in a shelters project. We recognized the importance of volunteers in a very specialized sector. As a result SIDR was born. Following Bangladesh, we went to Gonaive, Haiti in the wake of Hurricanes Ike and Hannah. There we assisted in the recovery process, including: the rehabilitation of over 300 wells, to using our expertise in safe site analysis for shelter projects, to latrine project design.

Haiti's earthquake had Sidr training crews and running several demolition crews to clear away sites. From there construction of over 750 climate resistant homes . We lead the way forward in training safe demolition and proper construction techniques both in Haiti and in the Philippines.

It is our mission to teach the locals with whom we work how to organize and implement a long term solution to natural disaster. 

We follow up each disaster by setting up livelihood projects that the people can rebuild their lives and move forward with.

Disaster response should always be all phases as Sidr shows throughout our projects!

 Our board consists of building contractors, engineer, water and sanitation experts, green building professionals, a doctor, and a child rights lawyer , and an agricultural expert on high yield farming on small plots. All dedicated volunteers.

Our volunteers come from all over the globe to assist and train the local community affected.. giving them hope and empower them for a brighter future.
