Donating Goats
01
May
2015

In the HCDP Goat Project a male and female goat is donated to a family.  That family in turns donates offspring from their goats to another family in need.  The lady in this photo is donating a goat to her neighbor.

 

 

People in Nan Paul (pictured above) say they have a great number of offspring ready to pass on.  Gueston Pacius, HCDP director, and his assistant, Jephte Severe, report, We went there to see how happy people are to share their offspring with someone else.

Below is a table showing the number of goats donated in places around Gonaives area.

Shoe Collection

Feb
2015

Children in Haiti often do not have shoes.  This is a health and safety issue for many kids.  Thanks to the generosity and effort of a lot of people about 2700 pairs of shoes and assorted foot ware were collected for children in Haiti.  Dean Wright and David Washburn seen here organizing the shoes to be shipped.

 

Through a US government program a military plane (wing visible in background) delivered the pallets of shoes November 11th to Port Au Prince where HCDP and associates received them and moved them to Poteau.  From Poteau shoes have been given out to many kids in the area.  Mats made from used plastic sacks (woven by a host of Christian ladies) were also shipped with the shoes.  These mats may be used as the only bed some people will have.

Housing the Needy

Natalie is a single mother who lives in Poteau. For several years, she volunteered her house for Oneal Tankersley and his crew to use as a typical Haitian house for the HCDP Creole teaching videos. In recent months, the mud house (enchanting, but vulnerable and not durable) deteriorated from the frequent Haiti tropical storms (see photo below).

"At the urging of the Poteau elders, HCDP workmen constructed a new and strong earthbag house for Natalie and her family.  She is so grateful for this wonderful new structure.  'Now when there is a rainstorm, because of the metal roof, I can sleep all night without getting soaked!' (translated)"

 

 

HCDP hired local construction workers built her an earthbag house ($2500), and she provided food for them as they worked. Now she is so happy (see photo below).


There is a great need for housing in Haiti.  Recently friends of HCDP funded the building of a house for man and his family who was living in a hut made of mud and banana leaves.
