Haiti Micah Sponsorship
If it’s May it must be time to launch our annual Haiti Micah Project (HMP) child sponsorship! Each year, Grace Church members and friends renew our commitment to support the 70+ children sponsored by parishioners, friends and our Outreach Committee. This program, created by Fr. Joseph Constant, a Haitian man, to care for the poorest of the poor street children in Mirebalais, Haiti, Fr. Constant’s home town. Through the Haiti Micah Project sponsorships, Fr. Constant is able to provide food, clothing, education and medical care for more than 500 of these children. Our $365 annual sponsorship helps Fr. Constant provide for the basic health care, and provide beginning vocational skills when age appropriate. For more information, contact Mary Ann Ryan at [email protected].
