Joy to the World- Christmas Tea


Published on

The Haiti Education Alliance (THEA) was asked to speak at the Pitman Road Church of Christ Christmas Tea. The presentation focuses on what is new and upcoming with THEA's work in Haiti. The proceeds for the event will go toward making beds for the 22 children who are currently in cramped quarters- often 3 or 4 children to a twin sized bed. Further proceeds will purchase needed materials for THEA's Gardening Training Program.
