School Re-Entry

Categories: Uncategorized @en

A team of Haitian carpenters, who work for a factory in town that makes prefab homes, built five classrooms in eight days.

With the classrooms we have at church, we will be able to accommodate 350 students when school starts again in October in Haiti.

Eight men composed the Disraeli and Ste-Foy team.  They made benches and desks for 200 students in six days. Jean-Charles (off white hat) is a master carpenter.

At dawn, the team members lifted the church’s gate on our truck to bring it to the site to be installed.

Orline and Asou would like to thank you for your generosity towards the children.  Without your support, they would not be able to attend school and they would still have to search for their daily food.  They spend all of their days at our house, but they sleep at their house.  Thanks for supporting Haiti Ministries.
