Haiti Update 7/06

Haitians definitely don’t have it easy. It can be discouraging to think that even though we helped a few hundred people, there are still thousands that we couldn’t help. However, I do believe that even though it may seem like a small impact, sometimes the smaller, more personal interactions make the biggest difference.
Getting to work alongside Haitians while helping other Haitians definitely seemed to make a more meaningful impact than if we would’ve done all the work with only Americans. By paying our local workers, we gave them a sense of purpose and an opportunity to give to their own community.
I am grateful for the opportunity I had to visit Haiti, and I look forward to visiting again sometime in the future.
