A report from our Raising Hope campaign:
What a great team to Haiti! My prayer had been that God would give us eyes and ears to see, hear and understand the work in Terre Blanche and surrounding communities. That prayer was answered. We have much to celebrate and process as the Haiti Foundation of Hope board looks to the future.
A big thank you to those who gave generously to support the work that touches my heart: primary and secondary schools and the school lunch program.
School lunches are important. For many of the 950 students (pre-K to grade 12) this may be the only meal for the day. Each child gets a generous serving of rice and beans with sauce on top. This little girl’s empty plate says it all.
This group of pre-kindergarten kids is off to class. No one will get lost using this method.
Several wells were successfully drilled in early August. This has been a blessing in an area that continually struggles with drought and clean water sources. These wells also are vital to the community health program which is making a significant difference in the lives of people. This well in the church yard provides clean water for all who come.
