During a recent visit to Villard, school director Saimplice informed me that the school we built with all your help is designated as a building of refuge by the government. Director Saimplice went on to me, the school is considered one of the safest buildings in the area and was recently used by over 50 people during Hurricane Irma. In addition to being an extremely safe building, it is also over three feet above ground providing a dry place during flooding.
Thanks to all our supporters, donors and the designers who helped made this project a success and a very special thanks to our volunteer supervisors who came to Haiti at their own expense to help with the school construction.
Our volunteer supervisors were Richard de Campo, David Murray, Scott Poeppel, Allan Cunningham, David Reichow, Fred Ireland, Adam Hall, and Tim Myers.
