December 2017: Ending A Successful Year

Happy New Year! As we move into 2018, we are so grateful for all that has been accomplished in 2017 thanks to your support! Here's a look at what December had in store for TOHH!
At the beginning of the month, we sent out Christmas cards to all our child sponsors! The kids worked so hard writing them, and were so excited for you to receive them! We loved seeing the photos that child sponsors sent to us of their letters, or their families opening up the letters.

Christmas and New Year's are important holidays in Haiti. People celebrate by eating "party food" that they would not eat at any other time of the year. "Party food" might include meat (such as chicken), or beet salad.

This December, we also had our largest holiday food distribution ever! A big thank you to those who sent food to their sponsored children. You provided holiday meals for this special time of year! Also, this was the first event to be held at the TOHH pavilion!

At the end of December, we welcomed the 2017 Holiday Sponsorship Team to Haiti! This team accomplished so much - from home visits to their sponsored children's homes to building tables and chairs for the pavilion to a holiday party for the sponsored kids, and even a beach trip!
We want to thank those who choose to sponsor a child during the month of December. Thank you St. Timothy's Church in Halifax for changing Fanel's life!

Also, a big congratulations to one of our kitchen staff members, Jocelyne, on her baby girl! Her name is Juventina, and she was born on December 26th.
