Haiti  Moringa Project

'Make Jesus Smile' means so much to a needy child. These children will recognize that someone, another child from within the Caribbean, whom they will probably never meet, cared enough to send a gift and a Christmas card to them

 

This kind act of generosity will bring joy, hope and a little of God’s love into a desperately poor situation and can cause both the children who send the gifts and those who receive them to remember the true meaning of Christmas.

 

Make Jesus Smile shoeboxes

By wrapping the lid of the box separate to the bottom and filling it with a range of small items suitable for a child of your chosen gender and age range, you can send a ‘shoe box of hope’ to Haiti

Seen below some of the boxes beautifully decorated by some of the Pre Primary School children. This could become part of the art program at school.

The deadline for the shoeboxes is the middle of November 2009 and BIDC have donated a warehouse at 1B1 Newton Industrial Estate, Christ Church, Barbados where boxes can be delivered.

Thank you BIDC!

Thanks to the students from the UWI. We need your help again this year.

From mid November we will need assistance from your Youth Group and Women’s Ministry to assist us to sort and pack shoeboxes at the Newton warehouse in preparation to shipping early December.

Special thanks to corporate Barbados who supported our efforts by supplying us with wrapping paper, toiletries, school supplies, toys and children’s clothes.

In 2008 Eric Hassel and Son and Seaboard Marine supplied us with a 40’ container and shipped it packed full to Haiti with not only shoeboxes but numerous items too many to mention. THANK YOU!

We want Make Jesus Smile to be much more than a shoe box ministry, receiving this gift means so much to the Haitian children.

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 for the Christmas 2007 project.

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.

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

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

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.
