#486: Survey on US-Based Haitian/Haitian-American Organizations (fwd)

From:  <paccilie@hotmail.com>

Dear Mr. Corbett

I am presently conducting a survey on US-based Haitian/Haitian-American 
organizations.  I am therefor writing to ask you if it will be possible to 
post the following message on your list for me so that I will have access to 
a wider audience for this survey.

You could also fill out the survey for us, since what we are aiming at here, 
I think, might interest your group.  If you have questions you can e-mail me 
back at paccilie@hotmail.com.

Thank you for your help,

Best Regards

Philippe Accilien

Here's the message that I would like to display:

Dear Sir or Madam

I am presently conducting a survey on US-Bases Haitian and Haitian-American 
organizations for the firm Management Sytems International (MSI) which is 
currently managing the civil society project in Haiti.  The aim of the 
survey is to identify Haitian/Haitian-American Orgaizations in the big US 
metropolis, their sector activities, and their interest in working in Haiti. 
  In doing so, MSI is hoping to facilitate links between these organizations 
in the US and those in Haiti, and establish a stronger bridge for technical 
assistance and other assistance that individuals and organizations in the US 
would like to provide to those in Haiti.

I am therefore asking for your help in filling out this survey for me to the 
best of your abilities.  If you know of other organizations you can also 
pass it to them for them to fill out for me.  You can either return it to me 
via e-mail at paccilie@hotmail.com or you can fax to us at MSI: Attn 
philippe accilien @ 202-488-0754.

I appreciate you're taking the time to fill this out for us, and if you have 
any questions please feel free to contact me via e-mail or you can call me

Thank you, Sincerely

Philippe Accilien
