Some of the students who attend the school

Behind our home, up the mountain is the small village of Geffrard, pronounced as Jeffwa. They have one school and it fell down during the hurricane. The students have not had school since the hurricane hit our area on October 4th. There are six classrooms, with a total of 200 students.

The school in Geffrard, that lost its roof in Hurricane Matthew.

Ryan and Jill Dolan, and their children, moved from the Stanwood-Camano community, to Haiti. They now live in a small mountain village, called    Plaisance du Sud. There, they oversee an orphanage and a medical clinic.

They are now trying to raise money to rebuild the roof for the school that was destroyed in Hurricane Matthew.


I am partnering with Klesick Farms to raise $500 by the end of next week (12/17). They still need 130 sheets of metal roofing to complete the roof. By partnering with us, together, we can help them rebuild their school.

Ways to give:

  1. You can help by purchasing a Food Bank Box of produce for $28.00. We will deliver the box to the food bank for Christmas and donate $10 to the Rebuild a Roof for a School project.

  2. Or you can donate $5.00 for each sheet of metal roofing.  Donate any amount.

Let’s help this community get their kids back to school!

All proceeds will go to rebuild the school roof, any additional monies raised will be used by the Dolan family to operate the orphanage and medical clinic.
