Mark your calendars for "Rock Out for Hope" on October 25th at 6:00 p .m. at the Hilton Garden in Clifton Park. Music and Food through the decades. More information is on the events page of our web-site. We'd love to see you there!
We've Updated our Web-site!
We hope you enjoy reading about our organization and our mission. It is so difficult to convey how the people in Haiti and Zimbabwe touch our lives....we hope the photos posted throughout the site will help you understand how important our work is and how very much it is appreciated by the people we serve. Thanks for taking the time to check out the new information.
On our recent trip to Haiti we packed the soccer balls that were donated by the Twin Bridges Rotary Club. We dedicated a Sunday afternoon to fun and games which included soccer challenges for all ages and an official soccer game. Everyone that participated was a winner and received a small prize.
I just spent the night sorting and counting girl's and ladies panties. I've never seen so many colors, designs and patterns. We will be taking over 1,000 pair of panties with us to Zimbabwe in September to distribute--panties were the #1 requested item next to toothpaste and toothbrushes. We are still in need of washcloths, nail clippers, and reading glasses. If you would like to contribute please let us know. It would be so appreciated! Financial donations are also welcomed for food for children, paper for the schools (they do not a single piece of paper right now) as well as toothpaste. These items need to be purchased in country.
Baby Cribs Distributed in Haiti
I can't tell you what a wonderful feeling it was to distribute the cribs, high chairs and other baby equipment to families in Haiti. Babies will now have a safe place to sleep and moms can concentrate on other tasks with peace of mind. Thank you to all who donated these supplies. They are so appreciated.
Janet is again pictured after organizing several cabinets of medical supplies and medicines. The village of Rantlamouaie is so very pleased to have this clinic. Special thanks goes out to the RPI-Engineers for a Sustainable World team who has worked for months to create the patient ward out of a steel shipping container.
Soccer Balls and Pumps Needed!
We are off to Haiti at 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, the 7th. We are still in need of soccer balls and pumps. The kids would be thrilled if we could provide them! Please contact Cindy if you are able to help. 518-859-4424
