HOW IT ALL STARTED
Have you ever just wanted a week with a loved one or a friend with no phone, no electronics and no hustle and bustle of everyday life? 6 months before the earthquake in Haiti that is what my children were asking for. ONE week with mom with no phone and computer. They had it all planned out and asked me to listen to their “plan”. I have to agree they had a great plan… They suggested fundraising for the $1250.00 for each of us and how we would do that.
Not only did we raise the $1250 each but we raised an extra $550.00 to help with other needs in the village we stayed in Neply.
Since that first trip someone from the One Heart team goes to Haiti twice a year and contributes to the 5,000 pounds of goods delivered to the villages we sponsor.
Participate in a giving trip to Haiti. This trip is not for everyone. While we will stay in a house with running water and electricity there may not be windows or AC, however the majority of the time we spend will be in the local villages where there is no electricity, running water, or AC. This trip is geared toward interacting and building lasting relationships in the village of Neply. One Heart for Women and Children is one of many organizations that has adopted a village. Our contribution and commitment to this village is to deliver food, clothing, and personal hygiene items. We help build-up the village in any way they need. The needs of each trip may vary. If you have questions please visit our contact page.
On this trip you will spend 7 days in the village of Neply in Leogone. On this trip you may participate in many of the following life changing activities:
- Rice Feedings in the village
- Village Ministry
- Medical Clinic
- Building Houses
- Soccer Camp
- Care for children birth to 8 years old at the local Orphanage
