Outreach to Haiti "For the Love of a Child" Raffle

FOR LOVE OF A CHILD RAFFLE

Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti Ministry held its second annual raffle For the Love of a Child. The only prize, a Grand Prize, was $10,000 and tickets were limited to 400 at $100 each. The drawing was held on Friday, Nov. 5 at noon at the Outreach Office in Norwich. In attendance were our Connecticut staff along with John Bouley, a member of the board, and Father Frank Rouleau, Chaplain for Outreach to Haiti. Father Frank drew the winning ticket. And the lucky winner is----Peg, who took her first trip to Haiti 22 years ago and was so inspired that she and other members of her parish in the Diocese of Norwich established a twinning relationship with Notre Dame de Lourdes in Port-au-Prince.

We are so very thankful to all of you who participated. Know your gifts (the proceeds) go directly to support our brothers and sisters in Christ Roi (Christ the King) neighborhood of Haiti’s capital city, Port-au-Prince. We provide the 60,000 men, women, and children living in this area with vital services at our medical clinic including emergency food and nutritional supplements, especially for malnourished children and expectant mothers; community health care services; education sponsorships to help more than 200 young people attend primary, secondary and post-secondary schools; and training and start-up support for mothers so they can establish micro-businesses. We also have 14 parishes and schools in the United States that have twinned with parishes (including some schools and clinics) in the Archdiocese of Port-au-Prince to foster meaningful relationships and lend support where needed.

Haiti is the poorest and most densely populated country in the Western Hemisphere, with most Haitian families surviving on less than $2.50 a day. We pray you will continue to support our diocesan ministry that for nearly 40 years has been helping thousands of families in Christ the King neighborhood and throughout the Archdiocese of Port-au-Prince. Thank you for giving the gift of hope to our brothers and sisters in Haiti. We are truly thankful for you!

Donations of any amount are always gratefully received. May God bless you.
