Purchase of batik products will help save lives as women of Gonaives pledge portion of their earnings to cervical cancer prevention

Haitian women have the highest rates of cervical cancer in the world, and most have no access to screening or treatment.  But the women of the Haitian Batik Project want to help change those statistics in their own community.  A portion of their batik earnings will now go to support cervical cancer prevention in Gonaives.

Please purchase and/or help sell these recently received, hand-made batik scarves (100% cotton; 15 x 60") at $24 each, with $4 going to cervical cancer prevention and the rest enabling women living in extreme poverty to buy food and send their children to school.  For details, contact me at  Thank you!
