My name is Angelina. My husband and I were born in Haiti. We have seven beautiful children. I came to America in 1985. I went to Haiti for the first time in 2006 because I was invited to a wedding. My experience there was very choking especially in the country part of Provot Grand Cayes, Anse-a-beau, Haiti. I found that one of my nieces I met for the first time was very sick. She had an ear infection. She had a thick liquid coming down from her ears with a foul smell. Her little was over two years old but didn't even crawl yet because of malnutrition. And than I saw other children as well as adults who were also in terrible conditions. At that very moment I realized how blessed I was to have been in America. Since then I tried so hard to help as much as I can providing food, shelter, school supplies, clothing, paying school fees, etc. But I come to the point of realizing that this is much bigger than I am able to handle on my own. I'm asking your help in various areas.
1. Build the road
2. Build a clinic or a hospital
3. Build schools
4. Dig a well
In March 2015 I lost my uncle because there wasn't any hospital near and there aren't any roads to get him to one. Shortly after a 27 years male (Junior) died. His diagnosis, a belly ache. They could not get him to a hospital fast enough. As a result he lost his life. Others have died in their beds for numerous reasons.
Children are being stayed home because parents cannot afford to send them to school. And school is so far away that parents can't afford shelter out of that town. The distance to get water is miles and miles away. Imagine if you weren't so blessed to be where you are right now. Perhaps you were one of those people in that little town of Provot Grand Cayes. And you were in desperate need of having one, two, maybe a handful of people who cared enough. Oh the difference that would make. All it takes is a decision. Putting your life in another person shoe just once.
So I ask you to please help me in this journey to help make a difference in the lives of those unfortunate people of Provot Grand Cayes, Anse-a-veau, Haiti.
