School has begun in Haiti.
School has begun in Haiti. For the past several years, a 130 student elementary school in Pont Sondé, Haiti, Ecole Sacré Coeur, has sponsored a daily hot meal program for the students that is being largely subsidized by Sové Lavi. In years past, parents of the students contributed what food they could toward the program. Last week, we received a call from the Executive Director of the school informing us that the parents are mostly unable to contribute due to the rising food costs and damage to the rice fields from a rat infestation. He and others have told us this food crisis is the “worse they’ve seen in many years.”
We are reaching out today to seek donations for this school luncheon program. The hot meal program costs 70 cents a meal for each student. This is often the only meal a child eats during the entire day. Without this nourishment, a child would find it difficult, if not impossible, to focus on their classroom activities and studies.
One hundred percent of your donations will go directly to pay for food for the children. Sové Lavi is a 501c3, thus your donations are tax deductible per IRS regulations. Donations can be made online here or mailed to: 401 N. Carroll, Southlake, TX 76092. Checks should be made payable to Sové Lavi. Or if you wish, you can also make your donation directly to the school by contacting Père Ronel Francois directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone number 011-509-4688-0311. You will receive a letter to confirm receipt of your donation that can be used for tax purposes.
We thank you for uplifting a child in Haiti with food and nutrition. As Robert Ingersoll once said, “We rise by lifting others.” And as we each uplift one, all are uplifted.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Sové Lavi (Saving Lives)
Give to the world your compassion and joy. Watch the miracles unfold with gratitude…
