Summer equals no school here in the United States and the same is true in Haiti. The 1,000 students at the Terre Blanche primary and secondary schools will finish school at the end of June.
An important part of the school day is the school lunch, which for many students is their only meal of the day. During the summer months the lunch program continues, feeding 750 to 800 children who participate in the summer school program. These summer enrichment classes include arts and crafts, sewing for girls and boys and health education provided by the Clinic of Hope staff. The school principal calls this a big program for the children.
Additional highlights for this summer are the two youth teams from the Northwest that will visit. These Americans will bring friendship and hearts to be involved with teenagers in Terre Blanche. The school lunches will help fuel the boys and girls soccer teams in the afternoons.
Your support of HFH makes this summer school program possible. You can feed 100 children for one summer day with a $25 donation or feed more children with $50 or more. You can donate online and designate the gift to “beans and rice.” Thank you for giving hope and nutrition to the children of Haiti.
