Please, Help Me Get to Haiti Again

I am leaving for Haiti on January 13th - 2018 and I am looking for your help withfunding some enrichment activities and some water assistance. We are going back to Sobier for the 4th time.          Each year we try to bring activies for the kids and ad

ults while we are there. I'm hoping that this will be the best year yet. I would love to buy them soccer balls, jump ropes (the kids love double dutch), and a whole assortment of games and activities. We have always wanted to bring a projector and turn the outside wall of the health clinc we are building into an outdoor movie theater. Many of the children wear tshirts that have been given to them with disney characters and other cartoon characters that they don't know who they are. Some of these kids, like my sweet friend, Jon Woodie have never seen a cartoon.      Also, we would like to purchase as many H2O Pack water backpacks as we can take. They do not have a well in the village and have to walk aproximately 4 miles down the steep hillside to a natural spring next to the ocean. They tranport the water in buckets usually on their head all the way back up the hillside.The special backpacks we would like to supply to them were designed especially for the purpose of water transport and easing the strains of their necks and backs. (Our next big project that we will start to explore this trip is a WELL, but until then. . . )It serves both residential and commercial needs. Just one backpack can provide safe water for a classroom of children for an entire day or serve the water needs for a household of five.       This will be my 7th year going to Haiti since the devistating Earthquake in 2010. We will be heading back to the remote village of Sobier for the fourth year in a row. This village is extremely isolated on the hilltops above the ocean roughly 60 miles east of Port-Au-Prince. The dirt road leading into the hillside is virtually impassible to most vehicles except 4 wheel drives. They have very little in this village. Many of the villagers have never left. There is no electricity. No TV's. No Restaurants. No Movie Theater. No Starbucks. It's really remote.     This GoFundMe campaign is in addition to the funds I am trying to raise so that we can finish the Health Clinic/Community center that we are working on. We are hoping that this will be completed shortly after our visit so that we can focus on building a well in Sobier along with agriculture and livestock initiatives.I am trying to bring some happiness and joy to our friends in to Sobier. Can you help me with funding, please? We would all be so grateful.
