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!
