Happy New Year 2011 to all of our supporters and volunteers!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters for their commitment to the HGD Foundation and Ecole Village Lucina ! We would like to first thank both The Canaan Ridge School of Connecticut and the C.O.O.L School of Malibu California, for their tremendous contribution and efforts in supporting EVL. With their help, students have received school uniforms and school supplies for the 2010 scholastic year and also summer of 2011!
We would also like to thank International Medical Health Organization for supporting our efforts in shipping an Ambulance for HGD Medical Center-with their support, we have been able to provide the people of Petit Goave with medical emergency care and transport.
HGD thanks Peter Schweitzer and Robert Reifel of Plenty.org for their generous contribution in supporting the purchase and shipping of the ambulance to Haiti, which has been able to provide the people of Petit Goave the emergency care they need.
Lastly, we’d like to thank Ms. Dorothy Katona of California for her kind donation of vitamins and nutritional supplements to the HGD Medical Center!
