If any of you didnt hear of my humanitarian service trip to Haiti, or even know where Haiti is, here is the whole story: Haiti is the 3rd poorest country in the world and they have a crappy government which wont help the people. Almost everyone lives in shacks, there is an 80% unemployment rate, garbage all over the streets, and it is overcrowded. Anyway, I went down with about 30 other people to build a new orphanage. The current one is a piece of crap. It has 6 rooms, with 27 kids living in it. There is no running water, electricity is only working about 40% of the time, they have to use a disgusting outhouse(no sewer), and they have no money. The new one that we are building will have clean water, sewer, elecricity all the time, it wont be overcrowded, and it will be overall, at least 100 times better(not joking). Our group went down on the 3rd, and stayed till the 12th. We also took down a lot of clothes, baby formula, hygene kits, etc. We got up at 5a.m. each day and worked until noon. Then we either helped out at the current orphanage, or toured the country. I think it was a great experience. It showed me how spoiled I am, and how lucky that I actually have water, a house, and all of the other things that we take for granted. If they came to and saw what we had, they would probably think that they were dreaming, or they had died and gone to heaven. I also might even go back in August and stay for a month. If any of you want more information about my trip, how to donate money or items, go down there, or actually adopt, just post and I will get with you as soon as I can.
