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 rofrancssp@yahoo.com, 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,

We invite you to join Organisation Sové Lavi (Saving Lives) in our mission to help Haiti.

Founded in 2000 by Dumas Siméus, Organisation Sové Lavi’s (OSL) mission is to save lives and give hope to the poor of Haiti by providing medical care, clean water, education, clothing and nutrition. Our longer- term objective is to create a social enterprise in Haiti, a for-profit business that will provide jobs for the poor of Haiti and funding for this 501c3, non-profit organization.

Haiti is a devastated country, the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. The people in Haiti face horrendous daily struggles.  Statistics tell the story of their challenges.  Average life expectancy is the worse in the world at 49 years of age. Too many children die needlessly of diarrhea, malaria and water borne disease.  The country is the most water-deprived in the world.  Haiti is third to Somalia and Afghanistan in hunger.  Unemployment exceeds 70%. The average annual wage is only $500.

Yet, even with these hardships, when visiting this country, you will be forever touched by the beauty, kindness, love and friendliness of the Haitian people.

OSL is grateful to our many benefactors who make it possible for our Organization to provide our services and, ultimately, support our objective of helping the Haitian people have an improved quality of life and long-term, sustainable results.

Anne Franke once said “Isn’t it wonderful that no one need wait a single moment to help change the world.” Please act now and join us in our quest to help the poor in Haiti.
