February 2012 Update

Dear Friends of Maténwa,


 

MCLC’s mission is not only to empower the children of Haiti, but also to encourage young adults to realize their ability to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others.  Being creative entrepreneurs, this roller skating club organized a two day fundraiser called SK8 FOR MATENWA, mixing fun with charitable giving.

 

Socios en Salud (Partners in Health) in the Dominican Republic facilitated a donation from Alcatel One Touch. The MCLC children were thrilled to get musical instruments, computers, solar batteries, an inverter, and school supplies.

Donations from Goons (somethingawful.com) continue to roll in.  Many of them are students giving up a coffee run once a week to feed a student.  5 dollars buys 5 student breakfasts.  This Internet forum has amazed us.

Thanks to all our supporters, you make us feel proud and energized,

Chris W. Low, Co-founder MCLC

Executive Director, Friends of Matènwa
