We offer a heartfelt thank you for your support of Haiti Foundation of Hope. It has been a busy and productive year. Looking back, it’s clear that God has been working among us. We have seen ways in which our relationship with our Haitian partners has continued to grow and deepen. There is much more to be done but we have much to be thankful for.
A FEW HIGHLIGHTS OF 2013
MICRO-LOANS – Focused on teaching good business practices, this program has continued to grow. With donations from people like you, we have been able to make more loans available and these loans are being successfully paid back. The goal continues to be one of self-sufficiency.
MOTHERS CLUBS – Groups of women have come together to learn about health and how to care for their children. These women, many of whom would have never stepped inside a church, are hearing the Gospel.
“Ti Foyer” – The Creole word for “hearth,” the Ti Foyer program is part of Community Health nutrition education. Mothers of healthy children are teaching mothers of malnourished children how to cook and care for their children. This is contributing to a decrease in malnutrition and sickness.
WATER – A well was successfully drilled and a solar pump installed which now provide a constant supply of water to the clinic and school kitchen.
RAISING HOPE – The board traveled to Haiti in October to have a unified, physical presence in the country and to develop relationships. We met with our partners and were encouraged by the progress being made. We also used the trip as an opportunity to raise money for various programs. The campaign raised $20,010. Thank you to those who contributed.
