The heavily overcast day did not stop the Functional Literacy Ministry of Haiti and its supporters in their efforts to empower the people of Haiti with education, health care and hope. Celebrating 30 years of helping Haitians to help themselves, the FLM is a Christian nonprofit organization, founded in 1983, that works with the people of Laboule, Boutilliers, Kenscoff, and Thomassin, south of Port-au-Prince to bring stability to their lives and hope in a better future through education and health care.
“What today’s walk is really about,” said Russell Bynam, president of FLM of Haiti. “We have a trade store we have just built in Thomassin right outside of Port-au-Prince and with the support we can gain today and in the future, we will be able to match the $250,000 grant we have received after the devastating earthquake, so we hope to bring awareness to our cause through events like this.” The above photo shows key members who pulled the walk together.
