MFO Container Shipment Donations
After my last visit in late January to the Maison Fortuné Orphanage, Jean Louis urged
me to organize a container shipment of much needed supplies for delivery in early Fall –
at the start of the upcoming school year. The “Depot” – our campus storage facility
typically stores these supplies, but now it is completely depleted.
Caring for the nearly 200 children daily on our campuses means not only feeding and
housing them, but also clothing, providing personal hygiene items, medicine,
recreational support and back-to-school supplies.
Following is the list of much-needed supplies. Local pick up can be arranged in the
Hampton Roads area by September 16. Please contact me at the phone number
below. Items will be packed and transported to the shipping agent in Hollywood Florida.
From there, they will be loaded into a large shipping container and sent by boat to Cap
Haitien, where MFO staff will pick up and return to offload and fill our Depot!
This endeavor will require as many hands as possible to help make the task achievable.
If there are other groups whom you work with that might be willing to assist with this
undertaking, please let me know! I have boxes ready for delivery to collect these much-needed items. Boy and Girl Scouting troupes, church and school youth groups,
women’s and men’s clubs would all be excellent groups who could offer assistance. It
takes a village to help us raise the future leaders of Haiti. We are grateful that you are
part of our MFOF village!
