Day 4 March Break Awareness Trip to Haiti 2018

Friday- Cap Haitian

On Friday we went to Sacred Heart Centre where they have a nutrition clinic, nursery, life skills class and alpha literacy classes. We met Andre and Denise who run the centre. We got split up into three groups to go to the nutrition clinic, nursery and life skills class. Unfortunately there was a huge rain storm the night before and that made it hard for families to get to the clinic so there wasn’t as many people there as we hoped for. It was amazing to see all the woman learning in the alpha classes and how happy they were to be getting education. It was great to see them be so happy when they finally understood or got the right answer. We played with the children and fed them twice in the morning and then worked with the adults in the afternoon. It was hard to see how much the rain took a toll on the community as we drove through town that morning. Everyone’s yards were flooded and they were scooping water out of their homes. But neighbours and friends came together to make the work lighter and get done faster for all. Overall it was a great day and an unforgettable experience.
