60 kids times three changes of clothes

60 kids times several changes of diapers

60 kids times blankets and sheets



We go through 1.5 of these bags every week.  They are full of powered laundry soap.

The RC employees 8 ladies that wash six days a week.

They wash in the local river and hang/lay the clothes out to dry.


They wash in three different groups

1.  cloth diapers

2. sheets/blankets/chux pads

3. all the other clothes

    I am very thankful for my little washer and dryer… It’s hard to think about these ladies washing all those things in the local river. God Bless them all!

    Wow…I’ve been reading your blog for sometime now and this is the first time I’ve commented. All I can think of to say is WOW! That is an amazing amount of laundry. They are so creative in their work too. I don’t think I could live without my Maytag, yet those women have made do with what is right in front of them. I have a lot of admiration…for them and you! Your work in Haiti is a blessing…to those you are caring for each and every day, and to us here in the States (or wherever). I pray for you daily! God bless you and your family!
