YES! Haiti Benefits from OGT Shipment

YES! Haiti Benefits from OGT Shipment

Beth Hovel and her father Terry are involved with YES! (Youth Empowered by the Spirit) in Haiti and they receive food donated from OGT through Help For Haiti. YES! was started to help with one of the unmet needs in Haiti, helping teens transitioning out of the orphanage system and back into to the real world of Haiti. They provide some of the teens that have transitioned out and are currently living with a relative or family with a box a rice per month. The teens benefit from the food since many of their families can’t not afford or come up with the means to feed another mouth in their house. This is very helpful for the teens so they can have the nourishment and energy to go to school, work and learn how to be in their society. Pictured are Terry and Beth Hovel and 2 of the teens in the YES! program with OGT boxes of Mercy Meals. Another wonderful way that OGT reaches people needing food in the world.
