Enda’s Trip to Haiti
The finished Community Centre
Committee member Enda Ryan recently travelled to Haiti with the Haven Foundation. Enda sent us the following piece:
I was one of 297 volunteers who travelled with Haven to Gonaives in Haiti on 25 April and returned on 2 May (12 hours early due to the impending Icelandic ash cloud). In that time we completed 63 houses, a Community Centre and a Playground in 45 degree heat and boot camp style conditions. It was a physically demanding week working in those conditions but one that was hugely rewarding for all involved. I was privileged to be part of such a committed group of people. It was also humbling to see and experience the conditions that people are living in, particularly in Port au Prince since the earthquake. I want to thank all the people who supported me so generously and helped to make a difference in the lives of 63 Haitian families. Since I collected a surplus over what was required for the trip I intend to return with Haven for their Build it Week in April 2011.
