My duties for the Glory House were mainly in communication and research for supplying the island with clean drinking water. One of the biggest problems Haiti has is they have a shortage of potable water, so a part of my job was to research the cost and effectiveness of Iodine filters that can filter out toxins in undrinkable water and make it potable. As for communications, I was in charge of helping spread awareness of the recent Hurricane that tore through Haiti and to create social media pages that will help the Glory House grow on the internet in the form of an instagram page and a facebook page.
My affiliation with the Glory House has placed me in situations that I couldn’t possibly predict. Being on the phone with representatives from organizations like UNICEF, USAID, and the Global Orphan Project was pretty crazy and I’ll have the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Haiti in March for a week to help rebuild schools, talk to children, and perform any task that they might need help with. Here are some pictures of the school we will be providing funds to and a couple pictures from Haiti itself.
