A Message from  Ann-Kathrin, volunteer @Project Betlehem:

Dear friends!
These 100 children with handicap live in an orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Although they are being taken care of really well by the staff, there is absolutely no education, and these children are extremely bored.
The Project Bethlehem Haiti wants to establish some day-structuring measures for the children, by training the existing staff, by employing new professional local staff, and by organizing internships for professionals from all over the world, who would share their expertise.
Please support me by sharing the page and just spread the word! I know that a lot of you are themselves professionals in the social field or have friends who are...We are looking for you!
