Click on this link to really understand what happened in Haiti.

What a coincidence. 

If you click on the link for the past five years, you will notice that Spyros Peter Goudas were among the first contributors to the relief efforts when the Tsunami hit Sri Lanka

Today, five years later, the major disaster in Haiti is the first link of 2010. 

Nevertheless, by visiting the Letters of Appreciaition link, you may view many letters attesting to the sincere generosity of our company. 

Spyros Peter Goudas is no stranger to plunging into humanitarian projects. 

We have seen articles and documentation of prior instances of his generousity to missions for people in absolute need in the Letters of Appreciation section. 

A delegation of young people from a charity called Planeterra (associated with Gap Adventures), whose CEO will be on a cargo flight to Haiti to assist in the distritubution of food directly to the people arrived at our facilities to pick up a truckload of donated food items. 

Mr. Goudas felt that due to the lack of facilities (heat, fire and water) that it was more appropriate to send ready-to-eat foods in easy-pull cans. Consequently, an assorted variety of these products were loaded into the truck. 

The following is a letter is self-explaltory. 

Her Excellency 

The Right Honourable Michaelle Jean 

Governor General of Canada 

Rideau Hall 

1 Sussex Drive Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A1 

Dear Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaelle Jean: 

Mr. Spyros Peter Goudas and the entire Goudas Foods Organization wishes to convey to you, and the people of Haiti, our condolences for the great loss of life, destruction and devastation caused by the recent earthquake. 

Additionally, we extend our deepest and sincerest concern for the survivors of this tragedy. 

Your Excellency, we witnessed your pain as you tried to convey the news of the tragedy at a press conference. How difficult it must have been for you, as Head of State and Representative of the Queen here in Canada, to try to compose yourself and represent your position, knowing that such a horrific disaster has occurred in your place of birth, your homeland. We admire your strength. 

Maybe you are familiar with the Mr. Goudas line of products?. Goudas Rice is Very Nice ?, flour, corn meal, sugar, beans, fruits, etc. for all nationalities. 

Mr. Goudas has demonstrated in his 40+ years in the food business, that he is a strong supporter to worthy causes, as exhibited on our website, www.goudasfoods.com, Letters of Appreciation Section. 

Additionally, when major disasters occur, Mr. Goudas willingly enlists the assistance of his whole organization and steps in offering major food donations. 

When tragedy struck Iraq prior to the war, we wrote to Koffe Anan offering our assistance. When the Tsunami occurred in Sri Lanka, we were among the first to support the food needs of the survivors. When Hurricane Gilbert struck Jamaica, we offered our assistance.

When tragedy struck Grenada, again we offered our assistance. Currently, we support the Feed Piura, Peru project and donate to the yearly fundraiser that occurs here in Toronto. 

Your Excellency, on behalf of my organization, I am offering you our assistance with respect to the food needs of the people of Haiti.
I would be thrilled at the opportunity to speak to you regarding this matter. 

May our Lord give hope and grace to the survivors. 

Deepest Regards, 

Spyros Peter Goudas and the Goudas Foods Organization
