When PCC added Hope Sewn as a Global Partner it was like adding a turbo engine to a push cart.The reach and scope of Hope Sewn in the village of Minoterie, Haiti has been greatly expanded in so many ways. Firstly, PCC has helped to build several new homes for families living in literal shacks made of pallets, tarps and sheets of corrugated metal. One of these recipients is a Hope Sewn employee, Duecillia. She now has a dry, comfortable and safe home for her children and extended family. She was so shocked to be a reciant of a new home (see photo). Other projects that PCC had funded are new roofs for 10 homes in and around the Hope Sewn shop. In the rainy season many people have roofs that leak so terribly that the dirt floor in their homes turn to mud and  they are forced to sleep sitting up. PCC is changing that for 10 blessed families. Additionally, the need for public bathrooms is so great that school age children don’t have access to  facilities during the school day. PCC has begun to build 3 public bathrooms with flush toilets! Having these physical needs met will bring dignity and hope to the village of Minoterie. Ricardo Charles, Hope Sewn President, is spearheading these construction projects and he is widely known in the village as a man of God. The leaders in the area are so thankful for Ricardos strength of character that they’ve asked him to run for public office. Having Godly leadership in Haiti, now there’s a life changing, village changing, country changing idea!
