Happy New Year Members and Supporters,
We would like to wish each and every one of you a happy and successful 2012. Thank you all for your generosity in 2011.
H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 is beginning the new year with a great new project and many more in the works. From January 8th through January 14th, fifteen H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 members will respond once again to the needs of the people in Fond Parisien, Haiti. The team will be building a fully secure, temperature-controlled hygienic pharmacy at Love A Child Orphanage which will serve the residents of the 400+ homes that were built last year, as well as aiding thousands of others in the rural mountain area villages. H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 will commemorate with our Haitian partners, friends and supporters the second anniversary of the devastating earthquake of January 12th, 2010. During the past 2 years H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 has built schools, churches, medical clinics, homes and trained Haitian apprentices in construction skills through the generous support of Jefferies & Company, Inc. The swift delivery of these critical medicines will save lives while building a trusting relationship with the at-risk populations which inherently mistrust outsiders. This pharmacy will be the f
inal piece before launching our next phase of response, which will see H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 partner with St. John’s University to educate young adult Haitians in the delivery of Emergency Medical Response. It will be very rewarding for us to transfer our skills and experience in these areas to a generation of Haitians so they can better respond to the next emergency situations.
H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 will also be delivering soccer equipment and uniforms to the young students in Haiti. This equipment and uniforms were donated by the Marlboro N.J. Soccer Club and collected by the Hot Shots Blue U-11 Girl team under the direction of Coach Craig Howard.
Thank you, as always, for your support.
