30 Days | $70,000 | One Mission
Last month, A Hole in the Roof Foundation announced its next project: rebuild the Caring and Sharing Mission and Orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The Campaign for Haiti's Tomorrow would raise the money needed to make essential repairs that will address the fundamental needs of the children at the orphanage: bathrooms, kitchens, showers, dorms, water reservoir, unstable walls and crumbling ceilings. A budget was set, a deadline was marked.
AND WE DID IT!
Together. In just 19 days, we raised over $82,000. That's enough for real toilets instead of holes in the ground, real showers instead of soapy water and cans. Walls can be rebuilt, ceilings will be whole. Sanitary kitchens, and a water reservoir safe from rain and sewage. It's not everything any child deserves. Especially these children. But it's a start.
Thank you for your generosity, your prayers and your good thoughts.

What We'll Fix
Boys and Girls Bathrooms
The building needs new support beams (the ones now are made of weak concrete and stone) before the structure can be properly rebuilt and turned into a learning center.
