Roughly 200 children in the Haiti now enjoy improved school lunches. A BGR project recently built their elementary school a kitchen with sanitary facilities, so workers can now provide clean, nutritious meals. Before the project, school workers cooked outside over a charcoal fire.

“On days in which the weather was bad; meals were cooked inside of a storage depot where fuel, a generator, and other non-food items were stored,” a BGR partner said. “These deplorable conditions do not provide a healthy or hygienic atmosphere.”

The two-week project involved four stateside volunteers from Charity Baptist Church in Greenfield, Ill., as well as fundraising efforts from Believers Fellowship in Gallatin, Tenn. Both local and U.S. volunteers collaborated to complete the building using materials purchased locally.
