Reaching Out To Our Community and World
Trinity Church has supported Helping Haitian Angels since 2009.
In 2009 the Trinity grant bought 30 plasticized mattresses as our mattresses the kids were sleeping on were infested with bed bugs.
We have not seen any bed bugs since! We were also able to hire another Maman (mama) to help with cooking and cleaning for the children.
In 2010 the Trinity grant made it possible for HHA to continue our sewing program for our girls.
In Haiti when a girl leaves an orphanage (typically at age 20) they will prostitute to earn money to support themselves and their families. Our girls will not have to prostitute as they will have become proficient seamstresses and will sell their clothing to earn a living. The girls at Kay Anj have told us that they are so excited to learn to sew and that they now have hope for their future. Thank you Trinity Church!
The Trinity grant also helped us to start the same type of program for our boys. Males need to be empowered in Haiti so that they can support themselves, their families and invest in their country. In October we started a carpentry program for our boys at Kay Anj. The Trinity grant made it possible for us to purchase tools, wood, saws, and cement to begin the program. “

Trinity Episcopal Church's generosity to Blue Ridge Hospice in providing a grant for our outreach efforts, and inviting our staff to make presentations on end-of-life issues is so much appreciated, it's our thought at Blue Ridge Hospice that if we can continue touching one life at a time, providing quality care regardless of an individual's ability to pay for services, we are making a difference and brightening life's journey for others.
Ernie Carnevale, President and CEO of Blue Ridge Hospice
The greenhouses at the school have been a great success - beyond my expectations. Mogra is now selling veggies to Nairobi hotels, training graduates in agriculture and adding better nutrition to their students' diets. I am sure they would appreciate our continued support - see the letter below.
thanks so much,
I am sure you are all amazed by how fast the crops in the greenhouse have grown!! The crops in the open field are also picking up! There has been a turn around at the farm. We are now harvesting the English cucumber! The farm manager says that he is pleased with the progress but insists that there is more to come when the farm comes to its full operation.
He says that the farm needs about three more greenhouses to be able to sustain itself and bring a significant income. We can't forget to pass our gratitude to the great people who donated the two greenhouses, and those who keep us in their prayers, and those who have worked hard to make the farm operational.
There have been shortages of resources for the small farm expenses like the chemicals, seeds, fertilizers and other contingencies. I know you all understand that we did not have extra money allocated for the farm (running overheads). David has been using his own money to cover all these small expenses. The most immediate need the farm has is the installation of electricity and buying a water pump that will help to water the farm without shortages. For the last one month, the children have been working in the farm and they helped and learned a lot. This is a great achievement since one of the aims was to see the children at the Rescue center and the school learn more skills outside the classrooms. We are making arrangements with the farm manager and the teachers at the school so that we can have more students coming to learn starting from this term.
We will be able to send more updates but for now, the pictures could speak more than the words above!!
Many many blessings to all,
Pass our love to all
