The July 2016 Health for Haiti team had another long but amazing day in Grande Saline. We arrived to find hundreds of very excited children waiting for us. Today we made simple instruments with the children and every child had a shaker egg or some other kind of rhythm instrument. Marcia led the children through some different activities with the instruments and there was a lot of singing and dancing. Nancy, Ally, Makena, Claire, Silvia, Gay and Ben enjoyed helping the children make instruments. It was great to spend time with our friends in the community and to see all of those kids have so much fun. We served all of the children a hot lunch of rice and beans and then enjoyed more singing and dancing. It was so much fun!!
Lynn Gilyard offered a professional development workshop for seven teachers in Grande Saline. It was so well received that she was asked to extend it for another day. So she will be working with the teachers again on Wednesday.
Work continues at the water system where there is a steady stream of people coming for the clean water.
Wednesday is our final day in Grande Saline. We will have a party and enjoy more singing and dancing together before saying good bye and making the long trip to Port au Prince.
Sorry for the lack of pictures. Internet and cell service has not been very good and we had some power outages. Silvia is taking pictures and video and I will post some when we have better service.
For now, I will leave you with just one smile.
