Reaching Out

Haiti Kids


Haiti Kids!

We're being sponsored.

Those of us who are old enough to go to school, receive tuition, a school uniform, a pair of shoes, one meal a day, and medical assistance. If we are younger, we're given nutritional and medical assistance and clothing.

At Christmas time we are given a party and get presents.

This is made possible through generous donations received the fourth Sunday of each month after worship.

Thank you for caring! ( www.pidonline.org )
