April 9 - Getting Supplies

April 9, 2013 – I visited Value Village, where I picked up a suitable skirt (women are encouraged to wear long skirts, rather than pants in Haiti) and then the Dollar Store for some pencils, sharpies and skipping ropes. At the Board meeting this evening, we planned for recognition of this trip on Sunday, including the presentation of a cheque for the donations of the Tansley congregation toward the Empower Global health clinics. There has been a musical fund-raiser, an auction of bird houses, and a penny drive as well as envelopes available for donations to this cause. The total raised is over $2000. That should cover at least a day’s expenses for the travelling clinic.
