Recipient for Orphan Grain Train in Haiti has Passed Away

We are saddened to share with you that the founder of Help for Haiti, Sandra Koch has died. At the request of her family this information has not been shared by Orphan Grain Train until now. Born October 19, 1945, she died in Florida on March 2, 2019 following a battle with cancer. She had been hospitalized off and on with treatments since returning to the USA in November, 2018. A memorial service was held in Lake Worth, Florida on Saturday, March 23rd. A floral tribute and Orphan Grain Train’s expressions of sympathies was sent. Sandra Koch and Help For Haiti was a big part of Orphan Grain Train since the disastrous 2010 Haitian earthquake. She spoke at our 2012 and 2017 Orphan Grain Train Conventions and Westfield, Wisconsin as well. Her heart was to help those unserved or underserved throughout Haiti. Her outreach in Port au Prince and beyond will be missed. The future of Help for Haiti is uncertain at this time but shipments to Haiti through this organization have been suspended. Our prayers continue for those in need in Haiti and Orphan Grain Train, Inc. is working to provide the much needed aid. Please keep her family and the people of Haiti in your prayers.
