Haiti was a poor country before the 2010 earthquake. Now it is destitute, and those suffering most include orphans at Grace Orphanage and Theophile (love of God) School in a Port-au-Prince suburb. A team of caring people including two from Pike County, three from Barnesville and two from Spalding County – leaving for Haiti on June 28 – has plans to change the lives of some “graduating” orphans.
Wearing their “Hands on Haiti” t-shirts, a group leaving for the impoverished island June 28 includes (l-r) Carly Proud and Andrew Hanrnack, Courtney Armistead and Butch Armistead of Pike County; Pastor Katie Pasch of St. John Lutheran, Griffin, Ellen Granum of Barnesville, Karen Acker and Mary Rachel Mayo.
