In Haiti, our focus was a village called Bouvier at the top of a mountain.

  • Finished construction on a school
  • Started a library with donated books
  • Provided much needed school supplies
  • Provided 244 care packages for children, women and teachers.

In Nicaragua:

  • Close to 800 locals received eye care, medicine, reading and sunglasses by a team of optometrists and optometry students
  • Fed almost 800 children
  • Built 4 roofs
  • Built 4 latrines
  • Wrapped 50 shacks in plastic
  • Refurbished 2 feeding centres
  • Provided 120 children and 28 sex-trade workers with hygiene and care packages.

In both countries we continue to build towards sustainability and are developing projects such as university education, entrepreneurship and orphanages.

None of this would be possible without your support. Thank-you!

There are more updates to come including video and photos!
