Hands and Hearts with Haiti
News & Updates
From our brothers and sisters in Haiti the message is DIRE. Dire need for food and medical care. Starvation and Covid 19 have swept the country. Haiti has experienced earthquakes, cholera, and hurricanes but this is a situation of added unknowns and fear. Father Romel has used what funds he has to buy masks and soap for his people. Water in Noyau is very scarce - the community well is dry. Distancing is almost impossible everywhere inside.
Can you imagine this life for you and your family?
Because of Covid 19 here Hands and Hearts cancelled our 3rd annual Taste of Haiti Dinner & Auction, our biggest fundraiser. Our goal this year was$20,000. We now have an opportunity to help alleviate some of the suffering in Haiti and to continue supporting the life sustaining programs they need right now especially the goat program, micro loans, education (elementary through high school) and clean water. HOW CAN WE HELP?
A donation of any amount can make a difference. Donations can be made online or mailed to St. Matthew. Checks should be made out to St. Matthew Parish with HHH in the memo line. Mail to St. Matthew Parish, 130 St. Matthew St., Green Bay, WI 54301. God bless you for your generosity!!!!!!!!!! Spread the word far and wide. The need is so great.
Message from Fr. Romel with an update on Haiti
Brothers and sisters,
I want to greet you in the name of Christ our Lord! My parish, in Mirebalais, has a very large number of faithful. However, most of them are poor people from neighboring villages in search of a better life. They are really people in great need.
The current needs of my parish are:
- Relating to the special challenges posed by COVID-19:
- Feeding the most vulnerable families immediately
- Strengthen parish microcredit to give poor families the opportunity to take charge little by little. This need is fundamental because it will help poor families to live in dignity and to eat, one day, with the sweat of their brow.
- Repair the church lighting system that is not working well at all
- Organize training sessions for members of our 13 groups
Thank you everyone for your donations for these 4 current needs.
Fr Romel EUSTACHE
Pastor of Saint Louis Parish
Noyau School Construction
With the foundation successfully built, the building is progressing on schedule. Such amazing craftsmanship and hard work. Plus a beautiful playground. Click on any picture below to view the complete Noyau school construction photo gallery.
As building progresses and we get more pictures from Golds Mythe, our Community Development director, we’ll update our website. Many of you have contributed to this building project. Without your generosity this would not be happening. As they say in Haiti: Meci anpil.
