Children's home refurbishment!

A huge thanks to all those who have supported our children's work in Haiti!  It makes a massive difference and we really appreciate all your love and support!

In the last few months we've seen some huge changes which we thought you'd like to know about.  Solar power now supports the Maison de Benediction and our hospital, providing about 80% of our energy needs!  This makes it a more workable and productive environment for our projects to grow in, and a safer environment for the children. 

The last months have also seen a very welcome refurbishment to the children’s home which has included the opening of a new sensory room to meet the developmental needs of the children.  Many of the children we care for are so severely disabled, that we wanted to invest in this specialist equipment to provide them the most suitable environment to grow in.  With a mix of lights, sensory toys, fiber optics, a ball pool, and soft play mats, it's the perfect environment for many of our children to develop, and a long term dream come true.

In addition to the exciting new sensory room, the home has been re-painted and re-tiled!  Our school room is looking bright and cheerful, we have new disability accessible ramps around the site (a rarity in Haiti), a basket ball net for wheelchair basketball and much more!  

The kids are loving the new home and with over 100 children on the scheme there's plenty more work to be done!  Perhaps the best way to see how you've helped support a range of changes is through a recent film our team in Haiti made.  It's only short and is definitely a good use of two minutes of your time.  Check it out now:  http://haitihospitalappeal.org/news/2011/06/change/

If you'd like to continue supporting this urgent work, please contact us today or make a donation via Globalgiving. It's only thanks to you that such positive change is being made!  Thanks again, and please keep up the great support.
