Dear Friends of the What If? Foundation,
We hope this message finds you in good cheer. As Christmas Day approaches, many of us are in prep mode: cooking, baking, and wrapping gifts. The same is true for Na Rive. Every year on Christmas Day, they serve a special meal to over 1,000 children in Ti Plas Kazo.
For most, this meal is their only present and usually the only sustenance for the day. It means the world to them. It means they are loved and have not been forgotten.For children who cannot make it to the meal, Na Rive staff are tying up gifts of rice and beans to take home, so families can share Christmas dinner together.
“The holidays are a moment of sharing. We continue to share and celebrate with our community – our brothers and sisters.”
-Lavarice Gaudin, Na Rive Program Director
Meanwhile, the students and teachers at the Father Jeri School are organizing a special party to celebrate the end of their first term, and the end of testing.
It is a time of much joy, love and gratitude in Ti Plas Kazo. We send our heartfelt thanks to you for bringing so much cheer to the lives of these children, on Christmas Day and every day.If you haven’t yet donated this year, we invite you to share the holiday spirit. Your support means more children can receive the gifts of food, education, and hope.
On behalf of everyone in Ti Plas Kazo, we wish you much health and happiness in 2017.
The What If? Foundation board of directors, staff,
and our Haitian partners, Na Rive
