My trip to Saintard Haiti was with Heart Hands and Hope for Haiti. We stayed at Phillis Newby's mission House in Saintard Haiti to unload a 48 Foot Trailer containing clothes, food, optometrists chair, tractor, shoes chairs and Christmas presents for many children of Haiti. My job was to document the work of Heart Hands and Hope for Haiti.

At each meal children from Saintard Haiti come to the mission house kitchen to see what's on the menu or to ask for candy. The children are careful to whisper so Miss Phyllis does not hear. Phyllis knows that two or three children can soon become twenty, thirty or more. Passing candy from well intentioned mission workers does little for their nutrition and encourges begging but who can resist those eyes and a pleasant "Thank you mister! " whispered.

Heart, Hands and Hope for Haiti delivered over 200 soccer balls. Many more are needed, as they are soon worn out by constant use.

Engaging Eyes of Haiti

American children have lost the communication skill of eye contact. I think it happened after we put missing American children's pictures on milk cartons as PR campaign for the milk industry. This made a generation of paranoid parents who now have children raised in the age of electronic hand-held games. Both have had detremental effects on the art of conversation.
