Mission Frère - Haiti
Directed by Brother Kevin Griffith and Mr. Sean D’Alfonso.
This is an outgrowth of MF-Advocacy. Haiti is the poorest country in our hemisphere. It is adversely affected by hurricanes, earthquakes, government mismanagement, and sometimes US policies that stand in the way of progress. The components of Mission Frère-Haiti include:
- immersions trips/service projects in Le Borgne, Haiti that are a joint effort of the Province, Iona Prep and Archbishop McCarthy H. S. in Ft, Lauderdale, FL
- the selling of Haitian art at Iona College to raise funds that will assist the ministries (6 schools, a mobile health clinic and an orphanage) of the Sisters of Jesus and Mary in Jean Rabel, Haiti
- collaboration with a Bergen Catholic alum who is part of a venture to build a school in Hinche, Haiti through an organization called – Center for Hope in Haiti (COHH).
