Michael Capponi the Philanthropist who is winning the battle of poverty

He is supporting thousands of families in Haiti.
SU- O1-Following the earthquake that hit Haiti in January 2010, the international media found a person who has been the first to go hand in hand aid to whoever needed help.

Michael Capponi, More than a year providing hand by hand aid

Several major nonprofit organizations in the world along with opportunists, were collecting all sorts of first aid products, food, medical supplies and all that can help restore at least the wounded after the natural phenomenon, but all those things were left in the storages until “someone” decide how and when things should be distributed. After a month the media turned their attention to other natural disasters in the world, following the rating of the drama and only a few followed the recovery efforts in the tragedy of Haiti. Being one of the world’s poorest countries, corruption is one of the calamities that limit permanent victims to receive aid from other countries. The money that many NGOs have been able to collect, never reaches those who really need it.

His family always supports Michael’s humanitarian initiatives

Michael Capponi, as civilian, not as an organization in which he is involved, it is he who with his own resources and organizing his own life with his family, friends, colleagues and employees who has been continue to provide relief with singular discipline and hard work for more than a year, to thousands of victims.

In 1 year he delivered housing & supplies in his 27 times in Haiti

Capponi has provided medical care, food, shelter and even education to thousands of families that practically he has adopted.  As a businessman and visionary, Capponi managed to balance its commitments in his company with its high level of social life to search for ways and sources of revenue to maintain the same level of health in his “camp” as he calls the group people that he has given shelter and care:”These people are my responsibility, I have to help until they are self-sustaining” he said.  

Close friends goes with him in this noble venture

And so far in each of their  “missions” as he calls his visits to Haiti to provide supplies that are about almost 2 times per month, Caponni has improved the lives of these families and he is guiding them  step by step through this time. Notable was the decision by Michael Capponi to have happened in December 2010, he and his family celebrated Christmas with these families delivering toys to all children, and other implements of survival as water purifiers.  

Capponi gives by heart but in wise ways

Also Michael has inspiring and convening a group of professionals who have decided to follow his example and help contribute. In addition to the celebrations Michael completed a census of the families he has been protecting and using his talent as a businessman he decided to start a new goal, moving all these families to an area where they can learn and develop their skills in the hospitality industry and tourism in that way he give them the opportunity to become self-sufficient. 

Michael Capponi knows what and how to help

!Michael Capponi el filántropo que está ganado la batalla de la pobreza!

SU-O1, By Rosana Sandoval – Tras el terremoto que afectó a Haití, en enero de 2010, los medios de comunicación internacionales descubrieron por primera vez a una persona que ha sido el primero en ir a entregar en la mano ayuda a quien la necesitaba.

1 Michael Capponi, More than a year providing hand by hand aid

Varias de las principales organizaciones sin fines de lucro del mundo junto con oportunistas, estaban recogiendo todo tipo de productos de primeros auxilios, alimentos, suministros médicos y todo lo que puede ayudar a restaurar por lo menos a los heridos después de que el fenómeno natural, pero todas esas cosas se iban quedando en los almacenes hasta que “alguien” decidiera cómo y cuando las cosas deberían ser distribuidos.Después de un mes los medios de comunicación pusieron su atención a otros desastres naturales en el mundo, siguiendo los rating del drama y sólo unos pocos siguieron los esfuerzos de recuperación  en la tragedia de Haití.
Siendo uno de los países más pobres del mundo, la corrupción es una de las calamidades permanentes que limitan a las víctimas a recibir la ayuda proveniente de otros países.  El dinero que tantas organizaciones no gubernamentales han sido capaces de recopilar, nunca llega a los que realmente necesitan.

His family always supports Michael’s humanitarian initiatives

Michael Capponi, no tiene una organización participa con una pero es él el que con sus propios recursos y organiza su propia vida con su familia, amigos, colegas y trabajadores para seguir prestando alivio  con singular disciplina y trabajo continuo durante un año, a miles de víctimas.  Capponi ha proveido de atención medica, alimentación vivienda e incluso educación a las miles de familias que el practicament e ha adoptado.

3 In 1 year he delivered housing & supplies 27 times in Haiti

Como hombre de negocios y visionario, Capponi logró balancear sus compromisos en su empresa con su vida social de alto nivel para buscar continuamente formas y fuentes de ingresos para mantener el mismo nivel de la salud en su “Campamento”, como él llama al grupo de gente a la que él le ha dado vivienda y cuidados…
Estas personas son mi responsabilidad, tengo que ayudar hasta que sean auto sostenible “, asegura.

Close friends goes with him in this noble venture

Hasta ahora en cada una de sus “misiones”, como él llama a sus visitas de suministros a Haití  que son aproximadamente casi 2 veces por mes, ha mejorado la vida de esas familias y las está guiando paso a paso durante todo este tiempo.

Capponi gives by heart but in wise ways

Notable ha sido la decisión de Michael Capponi de haber pasado en Diciembre 2010 la Navidad con  estas familias entregando  juguetes, a todos los niños, y otros implementos de sobrevivencia  como purificadores de agua. Inspirando y convocando a un grupo de profesionales que han decidido seguir su ejemplo y que contribuyen con ayuda.

 

Michael Capponi knows what and how to help

Adicional a las celebraciones  Michael completó un censo con su protegidos y utilizando su talento como empresario decidió iniciara una nueva meta, trasladar a todos estas familias a una zona en la que podrán aprender y desarrollar sus habilidades en el sector de la hospitalidad y turismo para darles la oportunidad de ser autosuficientes.

He helps with a vision of sustainable solution

El Puerto  y Jacmel es la primera ciudad en la que Capponi ha iniciado su proyecto de recrear la Isla de Oro en el Caribe, con un desarrollo turístico de alto nivel para celebridades y “socialites”, como todo lo que Michael se propone este proyecto está en marcha y hasta la fecha ya están en construcción un hospital y una escuela bajo supervisión  de Capponi y la gratitud de las afortunadas familias que ahora comparten el lujo y buen gusto que caracteriza la firma del visionario de Michael Capponi.
