As a DOJ Attorney, I subscribe to the philosophy that lawyers are social engineers and must contribute to their communities and society at large. That is why, every year, since 2010, I work with Reunion Sportive, a tax-exempt organization based in Maryland and Haiti, to organize a comprehensive Summer Soccer and Reading Camp for thousands of children and youths in Haiti.
This year, the Summer Camp is more necessary, because Hurricane Matthew destroyed most of the homes in the area, leaving the children homeless and hopeless. We plan to have 800 boys and 700 girls from ages 8-22 at the Camp from July 5 to September 3, 2017.
At the Summer Camp, we keep the kids safe and engaged in sporting and academically enriching activities, as well as in providing them with healthy meals and an opportunity to interact with one another. Consequently, the Summer Camp gathers a maximum number of kids and youths in activities favorable to their socialization and fulfillment, and transmit to them strong values and discipline that would help them be better students and cope with the negative effects of the hurricane.
I hope that you can support this effort and give hope to these children that are still traumatized by the hurricane. Please make your donation safely on our website at www.RSHaiti.org
Your gift will enable us to buy food, drinks, educational materials, and sport equipment (cleats, sneakers, balls, jerseys, ect) for the kids. We also accept in-kind donations.
