Haiti – August 2011
BRIGHT Children International partnered with All God’s Children International to travel to port-Au-Prince, Haiti to serve the 50 orphans living at Don De Dieu (gift of God) orphanage. These children were between the ages of 4 and 18, and 75% of these children were orphaned due to natural disaster.
Because this trip was literally an extended weekend, there was not a lot of training or educating on this trip, but the two music therapists that traveled with BRIGHT implemented group music, first with the teenagers, and then with the older elementary kids. Time was spent simply loving on the children, and one other orphanage was visited for a short time.
