May 2013 Haiti Mission Trip
A mission team returned from Haiti June 1st after spending a week playing with kids and painting at the Lambert school. There were 14 people on the trip, the largest group yet, ages 15 to 70. Those gifted with technology set up a Wi-Fi network so now the school has access to internet. It was exciting to see more than 600 children running around the school during recess. However, it was also heartbreaking seeing some children lingering outside the gates because their parents are unable to pay for school.
Pastor Dantus gave his heart and soul to the education of Haitian children. Thirty years ago, after founding churches and schools throughout Northern Haiti, Rev. Dantus Louis founded a church, school and clinic in Lambert, his birth place. Twenty-two years ago the school was nearly forced to close due to the scarcity of resources and Rev. Dantus and ASAP Haiti joined hands. With the help of ASAP Haiti, the Lambert School and Clinic has become the “community center” for thousands of children, youth and their families.
Local Food Packing for Haiti Event
by Lauren Seabrook KWCH 12 Eyewitness News2:38 p.m. CST, February 16, 2013 (WICHITA, Kan.) Numana, Volunteer Kansas, and KWCH teamed up Saturday afternoon to help feed hungry kids in Haiti. Hundreds of people filled the Kansas Colliseum to pack beans and rice into bags as fast as they could, hoping to break a world record. “Whether we make a record or not, 800 children who are very hungry in Haiti, will have food for over a year,” said Edie Howard, Numana spokesman. Children who have not had food at school since September. The need sank deep into the hearts of many Wichitans, motivating them to help. Coda Baker spent his 9th birthday on an assembly line, helping his mom seal bags. “I thought it would be fun to help break a world record and also help the people that don’t have that much food,” he said. Coda’s mother, Kendra, is very proud of her son, but not surprised by his generosity. “We watched the news in the morning and he saw a story about asking for volunteers and he said that’s on my birthday,” she said. “I think that’s what I want to do.” Coda says a building full of giving people beats a room full of presents. “If you’re getting presents you’re just getting stuff for yourself and I’m actually helping other people,” he said. “What we do here is equally amazing for the volunteers,” Howard said. “It’s truly, I believe, a gift to give, an even greater gift to give than to receive it.” A group in Canada broke the standing record on Friday with more than 350,000 meals packaged. Wichita volunteers busted that record by more than 120,000 bags. The total came to 479,034. “I feel really proud of Wichita,” Howard said. “What they’re doing today is outstanding.” Staff from the Guinness Book of World Records were on site to document the new record.
