Celebrating Bishop Rob O'Neill at Evening for Haiti

Dear Friends,

If you've attended one of our events in the past 12 months you've likely heard me speak about the power and importance of relationships for our work.

The progress we see taking root in Petit Trou is largely fueled by the generous support of friends in Colorado. This generosity makes lasting impact because of our deep and personal relationships with the extraordinary community leaders of Petit Trou. Twenty nine years partnering with the same community, through successes, challenges, and yes, even the occasional failure, we have strived to build relationship, project humility, and facilitate impact.

Dr. Ted Lewis was CHP's first Board President. I never had the chance to meet Dr. Ted, but with passionate feeling and great consistency he is recalled as a formative influence and a remarkable man who fostered deep and lasting relationships to great effect in Haiti.

Each year we share an award in Dr. Ted's honor to appreciate his place in our history while celebrating others engaged deeply in Petit Trou. We are pleased to announce that Bishop Rob O'Neill will receive this year's Ted Lewis Award at Evening for Haiti on April 22. Please click here to read a reflection on Bishop Rob's long friendship to Haiti, written by Don. 

We look forward to celebrating Bishop Rob's work, to honoring the legacy of Dr. Ted, and as always, to shining light on what's possible in Haiti when local leaders are supported and celebrated as they flight for progress in their own communities.

Warmly and with gratitude,

Wynn
