Haiti  Moringa Project

Last Christmas Jenny Tryhane's dearest wish was rather unconventional. It was not for those things which typically are thought to make the season bright such as lit-up Christmas trees, or sumptuous treats of ham and great cake.

Instead, all Jenny wanted for Christmas was shoe-boxes – hundreds and hundreds of them.

United Caribbean Trust has established a Caribbean equivalent to Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Ministry.

We extended the project into the Christmas 2007 season.

The children of Barbados were so excited about the programme that they packed hundreds of boxes for the Maroons in Suriname and the Caribs in Dominica in 2008 already!

Seen here children in Dominica at the 2006 Christmas party.

Thanks to the children of Barbados that made 200 children very happy.This project has now extended to become a family affair!

All of these children are now a part of the Child Sponsorship Program

Honduras Adopt a School

Adopt a School is a new UCT programme being introduced into Haiti which enables a corporate group to help and support schools within Haiti and other Caribbean islands. We seek now to introduce this into Honduras working in association with Helping Hands Ministries.

Helping Hands Ministries believe education is a way out of poverty. Faith Church also gave them Bibles and the teacher (the only one) promised to read the Bible to the students each day.

Sunday Schools Joins in...

This box is very special and I am going to pray over it so that when the little girl in Haiti receives this gift at Christmas she will know that I cared enough to pack it specially for her and that I want her to know that Jesus loves her.

United Caribbean Trust is seeking to work with numerous Sunday Schools to pack shoe boxes for the children of Haiti, Dominica, Honduras and Suriname.

A web page will be produced to thank the church for its help with the 'Make Jesus Smile' Christmas project.

A special thanks to Breretons Church of God who were the first.

United Caribbean Trust has a deep desire to be an expression of the love of Christ on earth, bringing hope to children in Haiti and Dominica responding to meet the holistic needs of the child – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Sunday Schools have become involved, seen here the little ones from Abundant Life. Well done

We want Make Jesus Smile to be much more than a shoe box ministry, receiving this gift means so much to the Haitian child the Honduras orphan and the Dominican Carib Indian.

Just knowing that someone, from within the Caribbean, whom they will probable never meet, cared. Your efforts will bring joy, hope and a little of God’s love into a desperately poor situation, remembering the true meaning of Christmas...GIVING.

Thanks to Charles F Broom who packed almost 300 boxes this Christmas.

Seen here the Head boy Nicholas Rose and Paige Wills the Head girl from Wills Primary School at CBC Morning Barbados, on Universal Children's Day November 20th 2007, sharing with the Barbadian public how good it was to help the children in Barbados and encouraging them to also get involved.

UCT's Make Jesus Smile shoe box project has been a great success and it has proven that the children on Barbados and we believe the Caribbean enjoy actively helping children that are less privileged than them.

A special thanks to all the 'hands of help' that helped to sort the boxes and get them ready for shipping, a great big thanks to DaCosta Manning for donating the warehouse for our use.

Out of this has been birthed the idea to introduce the project into the Community Centres and into the School Summer Camp.

Thanks to the Caribbean Development Bank After School Care 'All Stars Club' who did a wonderful job on shoe boxes this Christmas.

We are now looking to extend our Make Jesus Smile shoe box ministry into a Community Based Mitigation Programme, introducing a similar project called Make Jesus Smile Baby Boxes -

These boxes will be packed during the school holidays and stockpiled leading up to the hurricane season.

Whilst at the Community Centre the children will be taught a simple but efficient Disaster Mitigation programme

Secondary Schools got involved this Christmas, seen here Harrison's College leading the way.

'Make Jesus Smile' this Christmas.

Taking part is so easy - by simply filling a shoe box with a range of small items suitable for a child of your chosen gender and age range, you can send a ‘box of hope’ to Haiti, Honduras, Dominica and Carriacou this Christmas and New Year.

Please ensure that you wrap the lid separately to the bottom and put a rubber band around the finished box.

Happy Christmas DominicaOur relationship with trusted in-country partners in Dominica and Haiti ensures that each box is delivered to a needy child.

This will be photo documented and showcased on the web.

A special thanks to the schools of Barbados that have got involved in this pilot project.
