uniforms and replacement seats

The material below was donated by someone in the states.  It is all scrub like material.  It has been making its way to Haiti over the past few weeks.  I believe that it is all here now and we are ready to start sewing!  We are going to start out with dresses for the girls.  We will then work on shorts and shirts for the boys.  I have found three ladies here in Cazale that will sew the dresses for me.  Each dress will cost $1.07US.  I am having them make them by the dozen.  So I will be able to get a dozen dresses for $12.84 US.  Each ladies is working to get two dozen done before the end of the year.

Here are what the models of the dresses look like.  They are simple and cool for this hot weather.  It you are interested in helping with this project please let me know.  licia@realhopeforhaiti.org I am hoping for $77.04 to be able to make 6 dozen dresses for the girls.

R emember this wonderful feeding table that was donated last year?  Well shortly after the flood, it feel apart–water and termites were to blame.

I kept the seats and the recent team that was here welded a new table for us.  This is after the holes were cut.

We are in need of four more seats to complete the two tables.  That would make 12 extra seat for the younger kids that are to small to sit at the tables.

Here is a picture of some seats that we can buy. Here is the link to a site that sells them.  They are on sale right now.  With shipping each seat will be $30.59.  I am hoping for four seats at a cost of $122.36.

Thanks to all of you that wrote about bringing the papers for Berlange and Fedna in for us.  We have found someone coming in within the next few weeks. 

Also we have found someone to transport the wheelchair to  Anderson, where it will be packed on the next container. 

The picture of Rosena was purchased today as well

THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HELP!

Proverbs 3:12-14 (The Message)

 5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
   don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
   he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
   Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
   your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
   give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
   your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;
   don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child he loves that God corrects;
   a father’s delight is behind all this.
