It took several Haitian masons along with American and Canadian volunteers weeks to prepare the site. Now the foundation of the first Toddler Pod is build, cement for the floor and porch are poured and now the walls are in place! We are so excited! One step closer to seeing the older children living at Fort Jacques, playing, touching real grass, and being free to just run!
We received word that the playground donated by the Emmanuel Foundation in Canada arrived in Haiti this week. A mission in Port-au-Prince will clear it through customs. Then a team from the Emmanuel Foundation will come to Haiti in January to build it on the play area below the Toddler Houses. The kids are going to LOVE having this playground and it is going to be a great surprise for them all!
