Container Going to Haiti

Hi everyone!

We're still gathering donations to go in suitcases at the end of March with Vera, but she can only take so much and some things needed by the orphanage are just too big or heavy to go in suitcases.

Holy Angels Hospice is able to participate in a shipping container that is going to Port Au Prince at the end of April. This is a great way for us to get those larger/heavier things down there.

Here is a list of things that are still needed:

- Baby Chairs (the ones that recline - for the babies that have hydrocephalis, the cannot hold up their heads because they are heavy)

- Stoller (where there can be head support - reclining type)

- Portable Cribs/Playpens

- Soy Formula

- Medical Supplies

- Boy's shoes (ages 5-9)- Boy's Sunday Clothing (ages 5-9)

- Children's Bibles in French

With the boxes that are mailed to the container address, we have to pay $5 per cubic foot (1ft x 1ft x 1ft). So, if you are going to send something you will be responsible for including the payment with your donation. The fee covers shipping costs, customs, etc. for the people shipping the container. Make sure to mark on the box that it is for TONY or HOLY ANGELS so nothing gets mixed up.

Please email us for the address of the shipping container if you are going to send donations.

Thank you for caring about the children! Hopefully we'll have more news soon!
