2013 – A Year in Review

Happy-New-Year-2014-Fireworks1[1]

As we begin this New Year of 2014 all of us here at ABC for Haiti along with our new pastor, Fr. Nova at Our Lady of the Rosary in Haiti want to wish all of you a healthy, happy, prosperous and Blessed New Year!

2013 was another successful year thanks to your support.  Here’s what we were able to accomplish in 2013.

Education27 children have been sponsored for an elementary education at the Parish school, an increase of 3 over last year.

4 students have entered the University – all 4 are studying under the medical program.

Life Skills – we were able to provide 12 treadle sewing machines to start up the Trade School Program.  We were also able to provide funding to purchase work tables, supplies such as scissors, tape measures, etc, and cloth..  This program will not only teach women and men to sew but will also employ 2 teachers to teach the classes.

Don’t you just love the domino affect your donations create machines are provided, money is spent in Haiti to purchase additional supplies, helping the local economy, teachers are hired and skills are taught that will hopefully end with employment or the start of a home business.

CommunityWe were able to provide the funding to complete the roof on the church building under construction at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Chapel at LaBeque, one of Fr. Nova’s three chapels (sort of what we consider a mission church) that he is responsible for.

Parish Supportnot only were we able to continue, non-stop, the monthly stipend to Father for the general support of the parish but we were able to increase that monthly support to help pay off the debt incurred by taking a loan to begin construction on the chapel roof.

Clean Water Systemsnone provided in 2013.

Last but not leastWe provided funding to throw a “Christmas Party” for 200 children.  As soon as I figure out how to set another page on the site I will post pictures of the party.

More than 95% of your donation went directly to support these programs!!

You are always in our prayers and we pray God will continue to Bless You and Your Family for your generous support of those in need.

          Each individual Christian and every community is called to be an instrument of God for the liberation and promotion of the poor, and for enabling them to be fully a part of society.  This demands that we be docile and attentive to the cry of the poor and to come to their aid.  (Pope Francis, Apostolic Exhortation, 187)
