I spent a week working with Pennies for Haiti in Port-Au-Prince during the summer of 2015. For four days we traveled to a local orphanage and gave art, drama, music and bible lessons to the kids. You can tell that they usually don't receive much attention or love... or food. They deserve so much more. If the owners of home will allow it the next few steps will be bettering their quality of life. Nutrition and hygiene are two major issues.
Overall, I was humbled by the dedication and passion of the members of Pennies for Haiti. They work tirelessly to bring education and a better future to all the abandoned and orphaned children in Haiti. I felt welcomed right away and I intend to go back as soon as possible. Being with the children is always the most rewarding part and the familial atmosphere of the group of volunteers themselves is a blessing. I hope many more people become a part of this wonderful venture.
After my trip there I was asked to become a member of the board. I accepted and now I can't wait to see what the future brings for Pennies For Haiti and the children of Haiti.
