Caroline here again. Since the Earthquake many of you have wanted to jump in, get your hands dirty and help the people of Haiti. Some of you have medical skills, some are artists or engineers, some of you are prayer warriors but some of you still don’t feel like you are doing much to help. Well I have an idea! Can you sew? Can you get a group of girlfriends together at Bible Study? or at Work? I have a project for you.
Here in the Rescue Center, we use cloth diapers. We wish we had the funds to buy diapers, but as you can imagine it would be insanely expensive to put 50-60 kids in Pampers several times a day. (You’re welcome to write them and ask for a donation 🙂 We can always use more cloth diapers, clothes and aprons for the nanny’s to wear.
These T-shaped diapers work great, especially if they have ties instead of using big safety pins. The one on the right has elastic on the leg holes, which is even better.
These dresses are made out of pillow cases. How fun! Here is a link for instruction in making them.
These little dresses, or any type of pillow-case style dress is great and easy to dress them in. Sleeveless helps keep them cool, too!
These aprons were made with pillow cases as well and have pockets which work great for the ladies.
If you can help us with this, you can mail them to:
I think this project is really great because I have zero sewing skills whatsoever. Not artsy and craftsy at all. So big kuddos to those of you who are!

I have lived in Haiti since 1995 and run a Rescue Center that houses around 60 children that are sick and suffering from severe forms of malnutrition. School sponsorship, community development, medical clinic, food boxes, clean drinking water, are some other areas I work in. I have three wonderful boys and a new baby girl. I have been married for 10 years now and enjoy my life here in Haiti.
