Event description

Description

Agape Projects recognizes the extreme need in the country of Haiti. Haiti is already known as the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Already being faced with great poverty and struggle, the land was decimated by an earthquake in 2010, and a hurricane in 2016 that killed many and left millions homeless. These people are in dire need of help.

One in 8 children in Haiti do not live to see their tenth birthday. Over 50% of the population does not have access to clean, drinkable water. Over 60% of the country live in extreme poverty, children are often unable to afford clothes, and have been known to eat cookies made of dirt just to ward off the hunger pangs. There are approximately 500,000 orphans in Haiti and another 250,000 Restaveks (child slaves). These are just some of the hard facts of what the people of this country experience.

In February of 2018 a group of us went to Haiti to serve and help these people as best as possible. We visited orphanages, workshops, hospitals, nursing homes, homes for sick and dying children, and poor elderly in the communities. We experienced children and babies in these facilities often sitting in their own urine and diarrhea or wearing puppy pads because of the financial strain of purchasing diapers.

The trip was a success and we not only served the people of Haiti but also touched the souls of all the members of the U.S. team that went there. We’ve found it on our hearts to do more for these children. We have put together this paint night fundraiser where all proceeds will go toward the purchase of cloth diapers through the US based Non-Profit, DriButts. We ask that you would join us in supporting the children who need you more than you will ever know..Every ticket sold will pay for a daiper to be sent!

We will have basket raffles and 50/50 drawings to help raise money for DriButt diapers and all the proceeds will go towards this cause. Please consider sharing with your friends and family and come join us for a fun night of painting!
