Review for HAVSERVE VOLUNTEER SERVICE NETWORK (HavServe), Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I HAVE SUPPORTED THIS NOT FOR PROFIT SINCE IT STARTED UP A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO AND WISH THEM WELL FOR MANY MORE YEARS TO COME. TO BE HONEST IT HAS DONE MORE FOR A SMALL COMMUNITY THAN ANY OF THE GLOBALCHARITIES WE KNOW ABOUT. THE COMMUNITY IS LEBRUN WHICH IS OVER 4 HOURS DRIVE SOUTH FROM PORT-au-PRINCE AND THE LADY GEERTRUIDE SCHOOL HAS NOW OVER 700 CHILDREN ATTENDING. THE SCHOOL SURVIVES ON THE GENEROSITY OF FRIENDS ALL OVER THE WORLD AND WELCOMES VOLUNTEERS AS MEMBERS OF THE TEACHING STAFF. NO FUNDING HAS BEEN RECEIVED FROM ANY INTER-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATION. THE COMMUNITY FORTUNATELY DIDN'T SUFFER THE RAVAGES OF THE 2010 EARTHQUAKE.

Review for HAVSERVE VOLUNTEER SERVICE NETWORK (HavServe), Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first came into contact with Havserve's founder Carline Brice-Webb in March 2010
just before I visited Haiti on an official visit to assess the situation. I made a report for donors and my organisation Children of the World 2000 made some donations to the existing NGOs there like Rotary and the Red Cross. A lot was needed to be done, re-housing of the people, getting the schools back, putting in medical care units, building hospitals...Carline went to Haiti also and was shocked by what she had seen and vowed to devote her time and energy to re-build her beloved country, I think there are very few like her but the many owe so much to her thanks to her actions and I commend her for her duty to those who suffered.
I compel others to follow her example and be exemplary in service to others. Havserve is focusing on the community of Lebrun and are builidng the Lady Geertruide School, football club, centre of sporting excellence and have ambiitious plans for the future.
