Trying To Find The Right Words – From Port au Prince, Haiti

Spread the love

It is difficult to put this experience into words, as they hardly seem to do it justice. I can only hope that by the time I get home, I can somehow find a way to articulate this experience to others.  Today, we spent time at two different orphanages, and some helped to deliver drinking water to a slum area of the city.  At the orphanages we showed a movie (one was powered via a generator, the other by battery).   We also played games, visited, taught English and gave them some food, supplies and gifts for the kids.Delivering clean drinking water to people who have none is truly an experience that should not be happening.  To see the excitement and desperation of the receiving people will be ingrained in my memory forever.  – Participant, Haiti May 2010
