Timberland and the Smallholder Farmers Alliance Celebrate Haiti’s First Commercial Cotton Harvest in Three Decades


Last week three representatives from Timberland joined smallholder farmers in Haiti to pick cotton as part of Haiti’s’ first commercial cotton harvest in 30 years. Since 2016, Timberland has partnered with the Smallholder Farmers Alliance (SFA) on an initiative to reintroduce cotton farming - once the country’s fourth-largest export crop - to Haiti. The recent harvest was a key milestone in the project, which aims to create a new sustainable supply chain of organically grown cotton while simultaneously providing social and environmental benefits to Haitian farm communities.

Hôpital Sacré-Coeur is a non-governmental hospital located in northern Haiti.  The facility is known as the only reliable, definitive care hospital in northern Haiti, yet they receive no support from the government. Hôpital Sacré-Coeur has to produce their own power, police their facility, provide for fire protection, generate the hospital’s oxygen, treat their own water and otherwise provide for the needs of a 125-bed definitive care hospital in a very remote place.
