Joy To Our World and Our Children

Yes,Christmas does come to Haiti. COHH held its second annual Christmas Party at the orphanage for the children, their families and the staff. The event was held in the afternoon after school. Our cook, Vernice prepared a very special meal for the occassion. The children participated in a "Voice" contest as each took turns singing their favorite Christmas carols. I do not know if Santa was able to visit the homes of everyone, but everyone did get to know what it means to be a family at Christmas time.

Our party gives the parents an opportunity to show their support for the school and the teachers. "Mesi, mesi" is heard often and loud amongst the gathering. They really appreciate the work of COHH and the staff. The children get dressed up in their very best clothes for the event. Below are a few pictures of the event:
