Making Improvements!

Students at JB School
Students at JB School

Thank you SO MUCH for your donations so far to Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School in Port-au-Prince.  I wanted to send you a brief report about the school and how your money has been spent so far.

First, enrollment at John Branchizio School has increased to 647 students in grades preschool through 10.  These students study a core curriculum sanctioned by the Haitian Ministry of Education and receive a hot, nutritious meal every day!

Second, we have installed propane fueled stoves to cook the meals.  These are rare in Haiti and much more clean and efficient than the traditional charcoal fired cooking methods prevalent in Haiti.

Third, we are making repairs to the well pump and chlorination system in order to continue to provide clean water for the students and staff.

YOU HAVE MADE a huge difference already!!!  Next on our list are new desks, tables, and a computer room.  YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT will make these improvements possible.  Education is the key to Haiti's future and we are honored to partner with you in this important work!

Thanks again!

Dear Friends,

We just took in a new orphan at & Sharing Village.  Freddy Hebron is a two and a half month old little boy who was abandoned at the Government Hospital in Port au Prince at birth.  Freddy has a birth defect which caused his lower limbs to form incorrectly. He came to join us at the orphanage in Williamson on March 14! On that day, Freddy had his first peaceful night’s sleep. He is safe with his Mercy & Sharing family and he has a very good chance of having an operation to fix his little legs.  Freddy is named after Pastor Freddy Hebron who helped Mercy & Sharing so much before his tragic death in January 2013.

Because of YOU, we are able to provide Freddy and 125 other children the food, medical care, therapy, education and love they need to thrive!

We are so thankful to partner with you in this important work and appreciate your continued support!

Many thanks for your compassion and generosity!

Warmly,

Louis

Progress So Far

Students at JB School
Students at JB School

Dear Friend,

Thanks so much for your generous donations to help us improve Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  So far, we have been able to repair a storm damaged roof, remove a building damaged in the earthquake of 2010, and install a wall to secure propane tanks used for cooking student meals.  These repairs and improvements were only possible because of your contributions -- thank you!

There are over 600 students at John Branchizio School who would not otherwise receive an education were it not for Mercy & Sharing.  This is why your support is so crucial.

Next on our list is installing a computer lab to connect older students with the outside world and provide valuable computer skills to help them find a job.  Computer literate graduates are much more likely to find employment.

But we can only do this with your help!  Please continue to give when you can and also tell your friends about this project through email and Facebook.  We are a small organization and can only spread the word about our work with your help!

Thanks again for your compassion and support!

Warmly,

Louis
