School, Health Kits needed for Haiti

August 25, 2014

In support of children’s education programs in Haiti and around the world, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is launching a renewed call for school kits and health kits.

In Haiti, UMCOR is one of various nongovernmental organizations partnering with Care International and its Partnership for Learning Program. Through this program, CARE is committed to helping 50,000 underserved students in Haiti.

The Government of Haiti has made access to free, universal education a priority, but thousands of children remain unable to go to school, explained Thodleen Dessources, UMCOR’s program manager for Haiti.

Local churches in the Louisiana Conference can make monetary gifts to this effort by donating through their local churches, marking the memo portion of the check with Material Resources, Advance #901440. Read More.
