Summary of where are are at this point
The USFCH Board
- The team is bringing food from Port-au-Prince to the Musotte area where FEH has schools and the devastation was most severe.
- Humedica is graciously providing medical care, supplies and various kits to many communities in Musotte and the surrounding areas
- Gladys & her team are asking that we spread the word of the need for financial donations. FEH will initially focus to help the families of the Musotte students to rebuild their houses, yards, & farms.
- Gladys would like to buy the supplies in Haiti rather than try to have them shipped from us in the States (based on experience at times like these the corruption is worse than ever).
- The team also hope to help the families re-build their crops. So she aims to buy seeds, farming equipment etc.
The USFCH Board
United States Foundation for the Children of Haiti (USFCH) is a volunteer organization based in the United States which serves the Fondation Pour Les Enfants D'Haiti (FEH) under the leadership of Gladys Thomas. The FEH has worked since 1981 serving the children of Haiti through education, health and residence. The FEH has grown from one small orphanage to an organization that today operates two boarding schools, a home for children with disabilities, three schools and a 50 bed general hospital. Today FEH has over 500 children attending our schools. The partnership between the Haitian staff of the FEH and the USFCH has created a means to touch the lives of the children of Haiti.
This quarters newsletter Gladys Thomas (CEO/Founder FEH) & USFCH Board member, Steve Smith, share their profound thoughts on poverty, education & the impact to the children & families. Also on our new initiatives and new focus as an organization, CHANGING MINDS...CHANGING HEARTS...CHANGING LIVES! We also hear from the Wiedenhaupts who sponsor children at FEH & travel on mission trips.
