Play is an important part of learning and childhood and, by supporting a new playset for children in Haiti, the Rotary Club of Charlottetown is helping make play a little easier for children at an orphanage there.
The request to purchase a play structure by “Loving the Least of These Ministries” (Canada) was coordinated by Melody Sider of Charlottetown, daughter of Rotarian Larry Sider. The club’s board approved the request for $1,000, which was provided through funds raised through the Rotary Radio Bingo. The structure was built at the House of Hope Orphanage in Tabbar, Port-au-Prince, Haiti by volunteers. The set is fit out with swings, a slide, a playhouse, a sandbox and a teeter-totter.
The play structure is getting great use by the young people at the orphanage. The project has gone a long way to add enjoyment and improve the quality of life of the young people.
