Hey all. Sorry for the delay, but I've been waiting for pics to show you and I just got my first ones tonight. I will, over the next few days tell you how it all went down (some interesting stories), but for now just know that the tarps are there and 500 families are a bit better off.
This first pic shows the first installment arriving near the tent city on the hill. Very soon I'll write about what happened right after this picture was taken. Crazy!
$3 will allow us to plant a banana tree that, within a year-and-a-half will produce a #100 pound banana bunch AND will reproduce, producing shoots that can be separated from the mother plant and planted elsewhere. $5 will allow us to plant a mango or avocado tree
$100 will place a biosand water filter in a family's home, providing enough safe, good tasting water for up to ten people. Thes filters remove all bacteria and parasites from bad water, making it safe to drink. These basic and durable filters last 10 years with very little maintenance.
$5 will place a Creole-language preschool level reader in the hands of a young Haitian child.
$20 will provide materials to build a latrine for a Haitian family
