Christmas Program

One of the Christmas festivities in Haiti was the elaborate Christmas program put together by my friends at Child Hope, an orphanage in Delmas 75 that also runs the feeding program where I sometimes help out. Attending the party were close to 400 people: feeding program children, parents and siblings of the children, friends from church and the neighborhood. The kids from the orphanage performed dances, songs, poems, and raps for the audience. The street children performed a Christmas carol, holding the "Gloooooooria" beautifully, probably the only part of the song that the little ones knew. The finale was a Christmas pageant. The whole thing was great, but everyone agrees: the donkey stole the show!
