Summer 2011 -- Leisa's Haiti Journal #4

Luke, Leisa, Paul and the children
and staff of the MABE orphanage
Dear Friends,


Haiti was saved from most of tropical storm Emily this week, so we were able to continue serving the children in Port au Prince area without any disruption, save an occasional welcome breeze and the slight flooding we saw in Cite Soleil. Three cases of condoms have been delivered, and 10 cases of supplies ordered for "Wings of Hope" children's home for the severly disabled. I took Marcorel Lisius to tour Grass Roots display of examples of locally sustainable/approprate housing. Besides having founded MABE orphanage, Marco is an expert in sustainable building (specifically sanitation). I will meet with folks for medical services to register for PROMISS on Monday which should enable us to use our dear donations to get even better prices on rxs. Also, we did accept as a partner "Grass Roots" who in turn will offer us free medical supplies we can pick up in Haiti, saving shipping costs. It has been a very busy last week.


We did find our car and ourselves seated front row to a volatile demostration of some very frustrated young men looking for work in front of the Haitian Social Services building. Rocks and a few shots were fired, but no one seemed to be injured.


Thank you so very much for supporting our Children's Hope work in Haiti...without you the work could not move forward.


Peace always and all ways,


leisa
