Greater Moncton Human Rights Committee makes a difference in Haïti

Following the Haïti earthquake of January 2010, members of the PSAC Greater Moncton Human Rights committee wanted to contribute in helping out the people in Haïti.Their project was a two fold project, first they wanted to collect some money they would send to Haïti to help out women and children and the second part of their project, on a longer scale would be to set up an annual collect of school material for Haitian children.
After some research and many contacts, on August 9th, members of the committee had the pleasure to finally meet Sister Reine Godbout, who has been working in Haïti with Parrainage Tiers Monde Inc. in Terrier-Rouge since 2003, and share a meal with her while finding out more on her work with children and women in Haïti.
The committee was happy to be able to present her a cheque in the amount of $631.25 raised with the sale of Haïti buttons. Half of this money will be going to the children and their new constructed school and the other half will be given to a women community garden project.
Furthermore, in the committee’s discussion with Sister Godbout, they found out that French dictionaries were very much needed by children in this new school. They were also able to donated two full boxes of dictionaries to her along with some other school material.
