Haiti giving back to Venezuela

We were recently contacted by a local relief group that is working in Venezuela to help bring financial relief to mothers and children by providing hospitalized children with nutritious food and mothers with diapers. They purchased 200 reusable diapers that our Haitian seamstresses had constructed, providing not only an income for Haitians, but also a needed product for Venezuelan moms. The route that these diapers took signifies the interconnectedness that we all share as women in the world.
