No news on the dolls arriving yet however, I wanted to share with you, all the amazing building going on by Free The Kids in Haiti. What a positive message it send, and how safe the children must feel.
Donald Stevens of REACH organized volunteers to get creative and paint the inside of the kindergarten school run by Free The Kids, doesn’t it look beautiful!
Construction of the new Girls House is underway!! REACH building teams made up of young men from the The Free The Kids Hope Village work hard hoping that their efforts will lead to permanent construction jobs.
“The challenge has always been: what happens to the children after they age out of our residential program? Unemployment is up to 80% in our area so, even if one has a skill (carpentry, plumbing, masonry...), jobs are extremely difficult to come by. This training is sponsored by Cross International.”
Almost done! How exciting!
I think it’s just amazing what they are doing for the children, and I am sure you do too!
Watch this space for a lovely big post of your latest dolly photos that you've been sending in!!
Take care and Happy Sewing!
