Haiti and the Greensboro connection

Friend of TheDDLP and Greensboro restaurateur, Jack Reynolds has a brother-in-law running an orphanage in Les Cayes, Southern Haiti. Father Marc is a great man and doing wonderful work for the children of Haiti. Jack has allowed me to offer up some of my technical services to further the interests of the Pwoje Espwa facility. And, I've been honored to help.

I encrouage you to consider checking out Father Marc's effort by visiting these web sites:
