Suze Orman once said, “True generosity is an offering: given freely and out of pure love. No strings attached. No expectations.” For the past few years, we at Sons and Daughters of Haiti have been so privileged to serve the locals in Haiti, giving our time, energy and resources. None of this would be possible without the people who believe in our mission and support us in whatever way they can. We’ve learned that giving is not always about pulling out your wallet; it’s also about lending a hand.
Therefore, there’s no way to truly measure our impact, but rest assured we are making great progress, which is exciting to see! We kicked off the year with a successful album release party in Chicago, IL for artist JBeatz, followed by our 5K Walk/Run. We are so grateful for the turnout for both events! We were able to collect medical supplies and travel to Haiti with our team to host our annual health fair in Pignon, Haiti. We saw over 100 patients within two days, and our in-house physician and director, Dr. Sandra Laveaux, MD, MPH provided basic healthcare needs and medication. We saved some time for leisure (because we believe in a healthy balance of work and play) by visiting the Citadel.
Special thanks to Tania Delinois of Cornerstone Preschool, Veronica Cyrus, Herbert Emile, Nosbens Clervil, Hosean International Ministries, Krissy Joseph, DJ’FIRE and Blaze International Production for their invaluable contributions and to Brother’s Brother Foundation for the medication and medical supply donations.
To close out the year, we will be honoring the key contributors, who have really helped make our events and mission trips a success, at our inaugural gala. There will be live music by international artist, Phyllisia Ross, Oliver Duret, catered dinner by “Taste of Haiti Orlando 2018” winner, Chef Robinson Joseph, a special dance performance by The Remnant, raffles and giveaways. The night will feature guest speaker 2016 Olympian Naomy Grand’Pierre. Please join us and get chance to learn more about Sons and Daughters of Haiti, meet the board and honorees, and help us celebrate great things to come. Get your tickets now!
