Local Haiti Mission excited to be able to ship containers to the mission this spring

The residents of the Meadows Independent Living lent helping hands recently to assemble girls hygiene kits and other personal hygiene kits that will be sent with the shipment to the Holy Family Catholic Cluster’s Haiti Mission this spring.

            After the disappointing development early this year of not being able to travel to Haiti for their annual medical mission trip, the Holy Family Catholic Cluster’s Haiti Mission group was worried that they might not be able to help much this year. However, the group recently received some good news. While they won’t be able to personally go to Haiti, they will be able to help in another significant way – shipping items to the mission via a sea container.

            This was a surprising and positive development for the group, as they were concerned the same issues that kept them from traveling to their church-supported mission in Anse Rouge, Haiti might also prevent shipping anything. The group found out in January that due to civil unrest in the country which eventually resulted in a State Department “Do Not Travel” warning, it would not be safe to visit the mission this winter.
