Who are we?

1Starfish is a 501c non-profit that provides veterinary and animal husbandry assistance to the community of Derriere Marc (Denye Mak) and surrounding areas of La Gonave, Haiti. We do this by visiting the island yearly with wound care supplies, medications and vaccines. We work with the local veterinary agents and farmers providing health clinics and education. We also work with local educators providing school supplies, money and construction help. We also are supporting community gardens.


Upcoming Activities, Late Summer & Fall 2019
Thanks to ALL who participated in the EMPTY ICE CREAM BOWL Fund Raiser on Sunday, Sept 8th. You made it a great success!

Picking grapes at Colter Creek is one of our most important and successful fund raisers. Team LaGonave made about $1200.00 picking grapes in 2018. Our date to pick this year is NOW OFFICIALLY set for SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12th at 7AM – weather permitting.

We need AT LEAST 20 people (adults mostly – 20-40 folks is good) and we need to meet in Julietta at 7:00AM. We can arrange carpooling to/from Moscow like we did last year. Contact Nancy via email at: teamlagonave@1starfish.org

Please – we need a strong commitment and be prepared for the weather. Bring water, snacks, garden gloves, and sun protection along with appropriate clothing. There are yellow jackets, wasps, bees, etc. – prepare accordingly DON’T FORGET – Colter Creek serves us a nice lunch at the end of picking – well worth it just for that!
