By Patricia Brintle

One Sunday in October 2019 Felix Lam, along with a few volunteers, filled three barrels with various school supplies to be shipped to three schools in the diocese of Jeremie in Haiti.

This was the final step in a service project to become an Eagle Scout, the highest rank in scouting. Felix sought the assistance of From Here to Haiti to find the schools and ship the barrels to their destination.

The three chosen schools are Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Fond Rouge, St. Anne School in Anse a Macon on Grande Cayemite, and Notre dame de la Merci School in Petite Riviere de Dame Marie.

School supplies are a prized commodity in Haiti and needless to say, many children and teachers were made very happy by the precious gifts.
