2 countries, 2 incredible causes…
June 9th, 2011
REVO San Diego‘s Scott Laughlin recently visited two parts of the world and got to know two amazing organizations….
HAITI - Child Hope International
A quick trip to Haiti turned into a relationship. Scott traveled to Port-Au-Prince to visit an organization the derived from a young girl’s dream.
Ariana was nine years old when she had a dream that she would go to Haiti and help orphaned children. After a visit, her parents sold all that they had and moved there with their three small children. Eight years later, Child Hope International is a small, but effective organization that cares for over 50 orphans by providing education, medical care, spiritual growth, personal development and a family environment.
Scott toured their facilities, that are all within a few blocks from eachother. He was impressed by their heart and love for the Haitian people. Their programs are well thought out and effective.
Instead of just benevolent giving to the Haitian people, they also empower young people by providing education. They transition the older kids by giving them skills in carpentry, textiles, graphic design, business concepts and more.
For many of these kids, the programs of love of Child Hope will change their lives.
THAILAND – Compasio
Other than a little motorbike accident, Scott’s trip to Mae Sot, Thailand was amazing. For two weeks he and seven others came alongside Compasio, an organization loving migrant Burmese children and families.
Scott and his team gave an “Extreme Make Over” to Compasio’s Prison Baby Home.
The Prison Baby Home is where small infants have come to live after Prison Guards at the local women’s prison found them living within the prison. Compasio now cares for them and provides love and a family atmosphere.
The make-over consisted of cleaning, scrubbing walls and floors, painting, washing clothes and dishes, installing fans, electrical work and more.
Compasio is amazing and Scott’s group was thankful for a short time, be apart of their incredible effort to love people.
For both of these trips, it was yet another eye-openner to a global need. There are needs all over the world, even in the U.S. and in our hometown of San Diego. REVO San Diego is a group of individuals that are doing something about it.
Ask yourself, how can you selflessly serve and love someone else?
