Dear Friends,

Thanks so much for your support of kids in Haiti!  Because of your generosity, we will be purchasing solar panels to help insure reliable electricity for the orphans at Mercy & Sharing Village.

We have chosen Sun Electronics in Miami as our vendor for the solar panels and will be finalizing the details of the purchase soon.  Then we will ship the panels to Haiti where they will be installed by a group of skilled volunteers.

This means 122 orphans and the staff members who care for them will have electricity at night to help with feeding, bathing and caring for sick children.

Patrick (pictured here) is one of the children you are helping.  He just had hernia surgery but now is doing very well!

Please share this challenge grant with your friends and consider giving again to help us complete this project -- only $5000 left to raise AND EVERY DOLLAR WILL BE MATCHED BY A GENEROUS DONOR.

Thank you!!
