September 15 2013

Just back from a short trip to La Gonave Island to see the children at ASHOG Orphanage … they are doing very well and are healthy and happy. Wonderful to see what great care they are getting from Melene and Claud! Now we need to increase the numbers of needy children we are caring for in this home. Two rooms have been completed in the home for the children and are being painted as I type this, furniture is being made and things are progressing nicely. We really need more regular donors though to ensure that we can continue to provide for these 3 children and they others that will follow them. Every cent helps!

I managed to take along a lot of donated items such as vitamins, clothes, school supplies and some much needed solar lamps. Thank you very much for your generosity! Was able to give the children at Morne Augustin some supplies and also to buy a little food for the Poor House residents. Had a very helpful meeting with Michel Samuel of  www.­aaenfants.­org regarding agriculture on the island – thanks Sam.

Very much looking forward to my next visit which will most likely be in February 2014. Thanks for all your support! Please click on the video link below to see more…
