HAITI PROJECT   Resurrection has continued its help to Haiti via a parishioner’s overseeing projects in Egg Production and Well Drilling in the nation. We normally have Larry Newman speak about these working initiatives.  Pre-Covid we had drilled two wells at the Poulaye (egg production facility), a new well in the village of Campeche, and a new well at the village of Kayamit (the site of a previous goat animal husbandry project). We paid for repairs to the Poulaye hen facility, and we purchased a grain mill and mixer to allow chicken feed to be manufactured from local crop production rather than using imported feed.

HENS FOR HAITI – A parishioner who grew up in Resurrection, Christie Newman, has established a nonprofit called Hens for Haiti (H4H). H4H is dedicated to egg production facilities and training for local Haitians in running these businesses in a sustainable manner. There is high benefit in providing quality food protein to the local community while providing jobs to local families.

HAITI WATER –  Larry Newman is the president of Haiti Water.
Larry travels to Haiti in support of a reliable potable water supply for small communities.  The conditions in Haiti remain hard, but we are doing a part in bringing relief to the peoples.

Food and Water – what could be more fundamental to health and well being? Resurrection would like to support these ongoing efforts to allow Haitians throughout the country to gain access to these fundamental life sustaining needs.
Can you help? – If you are interested in helping, please consider participating in our renewed efforts to maintain this Social Justice initiative within our parish through our annual collection.  Your support would be most appreciated, and your involvement in our Haiti committee would be very welcomed
