Hey there! It's Star of Hope!
A while ago, I got to meet Tony and Myrta, who run our Haiti branch. Unfortunately, it's still too risky for foreigners to travel to Haiti, but despite that, we're running seven schools and supporting seven churches in the country.
But we're facing a lot of challenges right now, like gang violence, fuel shortages, and skyrocketing food prices. It's tough, but Tony and Myrta are doing an amazing job. They're risking their own safety to keep things going, and we're so proud to have them on our team.
Unfortunately, three of our schools are in a really dangerous area because of the violence. Our workers and students are at risk every day. But Tony's set up a network to keep us all informed, and we're doing our best to keep things going. We've had to cut back our "lunch buddy program" to just four lunches a week because of all these difficulties.
We need help, and not just with food. We need new textbooks, replacement solar batteries, internet in some areas, training for teachers, computer facilities for students, and laptops for teachers. It's a lot, but we're doing our best.
Despite all of this, we're still educating kids and spreading the message of Christ, thanks to people like you. We appreciate any help you can give us as we work in this tough environment.
Remember, the kids are getting an education, food, and love because of you and people like you. We're doing all we can to make a difference, and we'd be grateful for any extra help you can provide.
Thank you and rich blessings,
CEO Star of Hope
