Donation Made In Memory of Bob Hudson and Orville Jones
This past year brought the loss of two dear friends who have loved and supported the MNC Team for several years. After living to be 100, Orville could look back at decades of leading mission trips all over the world and around the U.S. On more than half of those trips, you would find Bob, who lived to be 78, working by his side building hospitals, clinics, schools, churches, and homes in developing countries or poor areas within the United States.
Driven by compassionate hearts and a passion to make a difference, these men gave of their lives to impact the lives of others in a meaningful way.
MNC has graciously received a donation in their memory from their families to support the Good Samaritan School in Port Au Prince. Their work continues!
The team at My Neighbor's Children is preparing to provide immediate assistance to the people in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew. Some of the MNC staff will be traveling down as soon as is possible after the storm, to be on the ground with the children and people which we serve. We are praying for the best, but are also expecting this storm to be devastating.......as so many already struggle on a daily basis for the basics....food, clean water, adequate shelter. If you are able to support these relief efforts, please go to www.myneighborschildren.org, click on the DONATE NOW button, and enter Hurricane Matthew into the text/memo field.
We anticipate the greatest need initially will be water and food. The most efficient way to provide this will be to purchase these items in country. We are grateful for any support you can provide to help. We wil post on our facebook page and here updates over the next several hours and days.
My Neighbor's Children is excited and proud to present "OPERATION SUNSHINE". We are built around three objectives: provide basic living needs, provide a basic education, and provide basic medical care for the children we serve and care for. OPERATION SUNSHINE will assure that the basic medical needs will be met in Haiti for 2,000 children, starting in the first phase with 500 children.
This joint effort between Florida Hospital, My Neighbor's Children, and the Haiti Adventiste Hospital in Carrefour will provide coverage at no cost to the chidren or the facility where they live. Costs for care will be billed and presented for payment to Florida Hospital Global Mission Initiatives. This will allow a tightly budgeted hospital in Haiti to provide quality of care without having to bear the expense.
If you wish to contribute toward the medical fund that has been established, please contact our OPERATION SUNSHINE Director Cayla Jones (at firstname.lastname@example.org) for information on where to send your contribution to Florida Hospital.

Our team led by NCH Honduras Directors Sandra and Roland Funez, returned safely after distributing needed supplies, clothing, school bookbags, and NCH Meals to dozens of children and their families in San Pedro Sula. This very poor community came out in large numbers and expressed tremendous gratitude to know that they are cared about. Sandra said, "It was so good to show God's love from our hearts to theirs".
Thank you Sandra and Roland for your compassion and leadership!
On Thursday, June 18, Shepard Exposition sponsored the 2nd Annual "Pedis for a Cure" on behalf of No Child Hungry. The team at Shepard is so amazing and awesome to work with. (A special kudos to Frances and Amy)!
The event was held again at You Nails Salon Spa on Sand Lake Road and food was provided by Ocean Prime, also located on Sand Lake Road. Individuals received pedicures and made donations toward the No Child Hungy mission to provide meals for starving children. A special thank you goes out to all who participated. This event demonstrates the commitment of Shepard Exposition to our local community and to less fortunate children around the world.
My Neighbor's Children /No Child Hungry welcomes Sandra Funes to the My Neighbor's Children Team. Sandra has come on board as the Director of Honduras Operations. Sandra and her husband Roland have served as volunteers for the past year with MNC efforts as well as with NCH events.

Onaville, a community of 30,000 displaced people who are trying to rebuild their lives, has no infrastructure for water, roads, or electricity. Families who were displaced by the earthquake in Haiti and who relocated to "start over" can find comfort only in the gift of a piece of land. Some people within the community must walk up to three miles to get a 5 gallon bucket filled with water.
Last weekend, My Neighbor's Children installed a new well (the only one in the community) on a church's land that assure water to all who come. The well can provide water every day for as many as 300 families.
The well was sponsored by our corporate partner Hand in Hand Soap as a part of their committed mission to give from every product sold through their company. Owners Bill and Courtney were on hand to celebrate with William Lowry as the well was turned on.
Our goal is to place at least 6 more wells in this community. If you are interested in helping, email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Last month, our My Neighbor's Children/No Child Hungry TEAM went to Haiti on a Summer project trip. Over the six day trip, we were able to complete our projects and distribute over 13,000 meals, over 9,000 bars of soap, and over 600 dresses.
The meals were provided through NO CHILD HUNGRY, the soap was provided by Hand in Hand Soap, and the dresses (part of our "Ruby Dress Project) were provided by our Ruby Dress Project Team.
Our projects included building a wall around an orphanage in Kenscoff, hosting a year end school party in a very poor neighborhood in Cazeau, painting the inside and outside of a house in Port-au-Prince, and distributing items in Croix de Bouquet, Cazeau, Kenscoff, and Cite de Soleil.
Many thanks to all of our team members and all who gave to make this possible!
Ruby Hutchins heard about our goal to provide 1200 dresses for girls in MNC facilities. She immediately became a part of the MNC Team and started the "Ruby Dress Project". Going strong at 76 years old, she is spearheading a team of "dressmakers" who have already amassed over 900 dresses.
Last month, our MNC/NCH Team was able to distribute over 600 of these dresses to the children of Haiti. The children were so grateful. We received so many gracious expressions of gratitude.
We want to express our gratitude to all who are a part of this Project Team and especially to RUBY - one of our Champions for Children!
