I would like to contribute but I wonder what country should I choose if I
am in Haiti?
Haiti is not on the list in the contribution page!

> Hi all,
> You might remember Felix's email from a few weeks ago about the
> project he and local mappers in Managua self-organized to map the
> city's 380 km of bus routes.
> It is really an amazing story and accomplishment and will make a big
> difference in the lives of well over 1 million people who depend on
> the public transit system in Managua and never had a map of routes or
> stops before now.
> He wrote up a blog post for HOT about it:
> https://hotosm.org/updates/2016-01-07_a_crowd_sourced_public_transportation_map_for_managua
> And as you may or may not remember, now that they have the routes and
> stops fully mapped, they need to design a printed transit map and
> produce an initial run of 20,000 copies so the people of the city can
> really benefit.
> 76% of the population of Nicaragua lives on less than USD $2.00 per
> day, the only chance most of them will have to make use of this new
> transit system map is if it is printed and distributed in the city and
> on the buses.
> Felix and HOT are running a donation site to fund the design and
> production of the printed maps with a goal of raising $7,500 for the
> initial 20,000 print run.
> This is a great chance to directly affect the lives of over a million
> people in a way that no one has been able to accomplish in years of
> trying (see the blog post). OSM Nicaragua did it on their own, please
> help them finish the job and get this map printed and into the hands
> of citizens who need it:
> http://support.mapanica.net/
> And please tweet the HOT blog post or retweet OSM Nicaragua's tweet:

> Regards,
> Blake
