New Water System In Cyvadier

We hadn't even noticed that water was not running in Cyvadier. The people were walking a very long way to the base of the mountain to a spring for water. It had been maybe 5 or 6 months with no close-by water. We hadn't noticed because we have a deep well and have water all the time. When we were approached by the committee a couple of weeks ago to help financially with the project we were so touched. I contacted our Board of Directors and they said, "Yes!" This morning the water was running! We also paid for a 3/4 pipe to our property so we won't have to use our precious well water for washing autos, washing clothes, watering plants and etc. We hope that we will be able to show the people of Cyvadier that this is not the only water they need, they need the Water Of Life!

This is Loveda Ashley Pierre-Louis. She is four years old and our newest addition to HAF Project! She was abandoned to the city of Jacmel and given to us yesterday by the Mayor of Jacmel. As most of you know, we are required to take any child from the city and surrounding area when they meet our requirements and we have room. She is an adorable little girl and very well adjusted to her new surroundings. She is living with our Nanny, Edith and little Kirby. She is available for sponsorship if any individual or group would be interested in helping this little girl. Keep watching the blog and web pages for other news about little Loveda and all the other kids! Thanks for checking the blog page and for your prayers and support!

Well, most of you know that we have started a little farming business for the kids. We have purchased 50 laying hens, hoping for 40-50 eggs everyday. Well, the kids (and we adults) have been a little disturbed that for 2 weeks....NO EGGS! I guess they weren't old enough. But today we got our first egg. Jo and Larry heard some mighty loud cackling sounds from the coop. And, sure enough, our first egg arrived. After Jo cooked the egg the three boys got to eat 1/3 each! They were so proud. Now if the other 49 realize what they need to do........
