Here are a few faces of the people your support has helped make a difference... this is only a few of the thousands we have been able to help so far... we have been out of gasoline for the last couple of days in the south part of Haiti.. haven't heard if they are out of fuel anywhere else... makes it even more challenging to a very difficult situation... most of our schools are open now with the rest of the country opening the schools by the 5th of Apr. ... we are getting portable tents as classrooms... There was a concert put on by the Rosettes last night in the Hat to help with our work in Haiti.. thank you to everyone that donated.... the cinder block plant construction is going well.. all the walls should be up by the end of this week or early next week... I found a coffee plant that starts producing coffee the first year it is planted even though the yield is low at least we would get coffee the first year and a full harvest in about 3 yrs.. we have the land picked out and ready to purchase and plant coffee trees as soon as we have the funds...we are looking at about $80,000. to purchase the land and plant the trees....still waiting of finding the cost of each coffee tree.... we may end up putting in large water reservoirs to drip irrigate during dry seasons.... we will also have our own preparation and drying facilities of the coffee beans...
the large relief organization that have been renting our water trucks since Jan. 27th still haven't paid us... this is creating a financial stress on our organization.. pray they will pay us this week... it has been the same with the other water trucks they are renting... it always take so long to get things done down here... the rains have held back so far so the roads are still open and those that have bed sheets for tents are still OK but this will change soon as each day is one day closer to the rains...
I probably mentioned this before but I will be posting a list of needs soon... what we need the most is your prayers and any financial support you can help with... we are so looking forward to the cinder block plant to be in operation and the coffee plantation in place this will help take much with the finances need.... we will start seeing the impact with these project over the next couple of years... the biggest need at the moment is to help the orphans......
THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE.... www.lifelinehait.blogspot.com
