    Wow Kellie that’s cool! I, too, went to Haiti to help with a Deaf School/Orphanage in Mirebelais that was in shocking conditions. I was there with another interpreter to teach sign language to the teachers and staff at this “school.” We found out while we were there that the children were being horribly abused by the pastor’s wife that runs the orphanage. The kids finally had someone there that could speak their language. It was heartbreaking. No one there knows any sign language excepts these kids. I don’t know how they were learning anything. The leader of one of the groups we were working with is trying to get them out of there and has been working on it for the past 2 years. When I returned home I took my story to the Deaf school I work with here and urged the students there to get active in helping the Deaf around the world. They had collected vitamins for me to bring with me. I would love to go back to this wonderful country – it was a trip I will never forget.

    Hey, Kellie! I enjoyed your video and it looks like you had a great time in Haiti! I have a Deaf friend that is interested in traveling to another country to work with a Deaf community and was wondering if you could give me some information about the organization you travelled with. You can email me privately at kathy.stewart@wichita.edu with any information you have to offer. Thanks!
