Two church groups recently went to Haiti in July, each for a week of service. The first group, from Arlington Street Church in Boston, went to work at a school in a camp. The second group –including participants from the First Parish Church in Cambridge – went to provide medical services at the same camp. The following blog post is about both groups. From July 12th-19th, four of us went to Haiti from the Arlington Street Church with Franklin Dalembert, the Executive Director of the Haitian Coalition from Somerville MA. We worked and played at a school with about 80-100 kids who were mostly orphaned from the earthquake. The school was started by “Father Fredy,” a Catholic priest, in a camp near Port Au Prince. Below are reflections from several of the trip participants.
