Today, January 12th, we remember the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, 12 years ago. As we continue praying for those lost then, and those still living under the earthquakes lasting impacts, we remember the words of Fr. Rick Frechette, seven years ago, during NPH Haiti's five-year remembrance.
"The painting shown in the photos, was commissioned by me for the 5th anniversary of the earthquake, to represent the bible verse from 1 Corinthians 15:52. "It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed."
NPH has been meeting the medical and familial needs of our community in Haiti for more than 35 years. Learn more about our work, and how we have redoubled our efforts since 2010's devastating earthquake, at https://www.nph.org/haiti/

Celebrating 35 years in HAITI ....

 

January 23

 

We are feeling somewhat gloomy in this very young new year.

 

Having done all the right things, while staying calm and kind, the end of Covid eludes us again and the pivoting is going on as well as the staying at home, for some staying in a home - alone.

 

Yet, we can take a warm bath, we can turn on a TV or a computer. We can use the Internet,  we can talk on the phone and if we need to we even manage to travel.

 

This is not so in Haiti. Only 1 % of the population is vaccinated. Gas and diesel are hard to come by and this also means electricity is scarce. Therefore no Internet. Food prices have soared. Kidnappings reached a thousand this past year and yes, 81 of those kidnapped were foreigners. 


Those of you who read Fr Rick's updates know, that virtually anyone could be the victim of kidnappers.
He tried very hard to find that thin silver lining – that ray of hope -  to make the message more easily digestible for us. 

No further letters have arrived – maybe it's our turn.....

 

Let's send a huge gift of prayers, well wishes and funds to our friends at NPFS ( Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs) as they are celebrating

 

 

 

35 years of hard work and graceful perseverance 
35 years of graduates, educated professionals healing and helping 
35 years of fearless dedication.
35 years of unconditional love
