Dreams really do come true! Soroptimist Saratoga has awarded TLC a $15,000 grant to build a living classroom (school garden), latrines, handwash station and kitchen classroom in Haiti.

At the end of July our team will be heading to Haiti and spending most of our time in the village of Rantlamouaie. We are blessed to have Drs. Kane and Cole join us again. The trip is just 8 weeks away and we need to purchase alot of medicines. As you may recall,on the last medical mission we had to send a courier to the Dominican Republic twice inorder to restock our suplies. This time we want to be fully prepared. Please consider sending a donation to To Love a Child, PO Box 165, Clifton Park, NY so that medicine can be purchased. Credit cards and paypal are also convenient ways of donating. Thank you so much!
