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 ( 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
