COLMINY FARM, 2014
Boston Mothers Care completed another project in 2014 by providing a pump for the farmers. The people in the village have 2 pumps now to work their garden thanks to Mission Haiti and BMC. LAst December, the farmers cropped beautiful beans, callalou, squash, eggplants and other vegetables.  We are now raising funds to build the school, which will be our next project for the community.
COMMITMENT, 2013

Healing Hands provides water filters  and Laurent Lophane helped bring goats to Colminy. We are planning to travel there in summer 2013, to oversee the building of a reservoir to hold water, whether delivered by a truck or to catch the rain.  We now understand the difficulty of our mission in Haiti, but remain committed.

WELL DRILLING UPDATE, May 2012

It took months to work through formal procedures to bring heavy equipment to the Artibonite region. Once a suitable location was found, the ground was so rocky, the drill bit broke – causing further delay. Finally, we received a report from the Operations Director that they hit salt water, which could not be used without desalination equipment that would be impractical to maintain.

Throughout this process, Healing Hands never charged any money for their work.
CLEAN WATER UPDATE, September 2011

We joined forces with Healing Hands International, a faith-based organization in Tennessee, to drill a well in Colminy. The plan was to do a site survey, then bring in a drill team and heavy equipment. This normally can be done in less than a week.

PUBLIC HEALTH UPDATE, August – September 2011

Dr. Michelle Morse of Physicians for Haiti traveled to the St. Marc area to coordinate with Zanmi Lasante on scheduling a mobile health van to visit Colminy on a regular basis.  Laurent Lophane was in Colminy in August, building latrines to improve waste disposal. Lophane is our point person in Haiti, and his faith-based work keeps us aware of the needs of isolated locations like Colminy. 

TORNADO RELIEF MISSION TO ALABAMA, May 2011

Over the 2011 Memorial Day Weekend, BMC members Johane Fanfan, Ines Palmarin, Joanne Freeman and Fabienne Eliacin distributed clothes, shoes, food, water, garden seeds and personal care items to people in Sumter County. The town of Geiger is a remote area that had not received aid from any other organizations.
