#7 - Haiti - Visit to Gracious Hands Orphanage

In May 2017 made a special trip to Port-Au-Prince Haiti with some close friends to assist the amazing team at the Gracious Hands Orphanage

It's never easy to describe in words the impact of the earthquake in 2010 and the hurricane in 2016, but once we arrived we felt the spirit of those willing to help and continue to build towards the future. In our efforts to bring resources, assist the orphanage acquire land to expand, and start the process to set up an adoption network in the U.S., we also got to know the 39 children, most who lost their parents in the earthquake or hurricane, and the special team on the ground that has helped bring a smile to their faces, food on the plates, and shelter over their heads.

The story and the work is to be continued...
