In August of this year a team from LifeCoast Church went to Haiti, to work with Shelley at The Apparent Project. We thought this would be a great opportunity to bless the women of Apparent Project with a sewing machine from Gifts of Hope.
However, after talking to Shelley at Apparent Project, it became obvious that we could meet a much bigger need by having our team transport some much needed supplies. Our team of 20 people checked over 1,300 pounds of supplies for the people of Apparent Project! This put us way over our personal allotted limit so, we at Trades of Hope decided to do something a little different this month with our donation from Gifts of Hope. It is not nearly as fun as a sewing machine or a goat, but we paid for the air freight of the needed supplies for women to keep making jewelry. Shelley was very grateful for this help and it truly fulfilled a need for this mission and the families involved.
This month, we have plans to purchase more animals for women to start new businesses! We are excited and are so glad to have such a wonderful Trades of Hope team! For those just browsing our website, we would love for you to come on board and be a part of changing the world with us. Thank you!
