Haiti Project 2018
Louise Dansereau and I went back to Haiti to work at the new orphanage housing 39 orphans. During the week we helped the chidren with their homework and recitation of lessons. On week-ends we had more time to play games, do puzzles, play with plasticine, etc. Again, it was our loving presence, our attentive listening to their stories and our open arms to their way of life that brought them happiness,peace and joy.
Louise and I will continue our missionnary work in Haiti in
Haiti Project 2015
by Sr. Berthe O'Reilly, m.o.
January 2015, Sister Corinne Chartier, S.N.J.M. and myself left for Haiti to do missionary work for Father André Sylvestre. For 14 weeks,we worked at a school in Robillard where Fathe André was parish priest and in charge of the school.The school had over 300 students from K to grade 6. Some teachers did not have any training for teaching. We would spend the day listening and supporting all the teachers. At the request of teachers we did some teaching. We would meet the teachers regularly to discuss different ways of teaching and doing discipline. The staff welcomed our recommendations and hand-on materials with open arms. At the end of our mission they thanked us with dances, songs and words of appreciation like the Haitien people can do. We were invited to return to their school.
The last ten days were spent at the orphanage of Father André in Cap-Haitien. We were met by 29 orphans - 17 girls and 12 boys aged 3 to 12 years old. During these few days we helped the children with their homework and recitation of lessons. Between their homework, meals and shower we would play with them. We were restrained in space, games and toys. Our loving presence and our attentive listening were worth more than a million like Father André would tell us.
