Bus for Haiti


To the Editor:

The Martha’s Vineyard Fish Farm for Haiti Project continues its mission. The donated VTA bus is at the Regional High School where students are preparing it for shipment to Haiti by removing some of the seats, the luggage rack, and building a partition behind the driver’s seat. This Friday students will be painting a logo on the bus, so the bus will be recognizable when it is in Haiti. Volunteers to help load the bus when it is ready are needed.

Twenty-five children attending school at the Project in Lilavois are in need of sponsors. These children are attending school now but because of the earthquake the parents are in need of financial assistance to keep their children in school. There are very few public schools in Haiti. Each sponsor will receive a picture of his/her child and further information about the progress of their child.
