For the adults, we were living examples of the positive impacts of their generosity through HTF. Everyone agreed that the HTF–HELP partnership is an example of a very effective and long-term commitment that turns lives around. From our perspective, we were astonished to see how people in America were so devoted to issues faced by Haitians. The people we met were constantly trying to figure out ways to raise awareness and stimulate others to be generous to Haiti. We were especially impressed by the pastors’ engagement with HELP and the Haitian cause. They devoted their time to reach out to people, and the willingness and commitment they showed were like they were taking action for an American cause. Such behavior encourages young Haitians like us to devote ourselves even more to the cause of our own country.
