Full of Hope After Returning from Haiti

From December 28th to January 5th, a GAiN Spain team was working in Haiti in our long-term project in the Ça-Ira Children´s Home.

There were several objectives for this trip: on the one hand, to work directly with the children to able to update the information of our sponsorship program through which specific support is sent from Spain for many of these children; on the other hand, to continue working and developing the construction work on all the buildings at the  children´s home that were destroyed by the 2010 earthquake.

The activities with the children were truly a special time, filled with unforgettable moments. At the same time, the construction work is moving ahead according to schedule. So far, we have finished each phase according to schedule. We were also able to bring specific aid (blankets and shoes) to the children that was collected previously in Spain during the Christmas holidays.

Next summer a new GAiN team will head to Haiti from Spain with the desire to keep working on this project that fills us with hope....for them AND for us. Are you in?
