For those of you who may not know me, my name is SunMin, and I am a medical student at University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
This summer I am traveling to Haiti, from July 21st to July 28th, to volunteer with an organization called Children of the Nations (COTN), which ministers to orphaned and destitute children in developing countries. I will be traveling with a team of 15 men from my church (Flood) to a region called Leogane, where the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake was located, just a few miles from Port-au-Prince.
I've traveled to Haiti twice in the past, and spent about half a year volunteering in various capacities. Haiti is very near and dear to my heart, and I'm really excited for the opportunity to go back this summer!
COTN's ministry in Haiti, which launched shortly after the earthquake struck, is still in its infant stages. Flood recently sent a large container full of packaged meals and supplies to COTN Haiti to help get their ministry off the ground. Our team will be there to help distribute the contents of the container. I don't know exactly what else we will be doing while in Haiti, but they will include building relationships with the children, vision-casting for COTN's ministry in Haiti, and helping with other hands-on projects.
To finance this project, each team member must raise $2235 which covers the cost of airfare, room and board, and travel insurance. I need to raise $500 of this by May 10th as a deposit for the airfare. The total amount needs to be raised by June 21st.
Will you consider partnering with me by supporting me financially or by prayer? Any amount of contribution will be greatly appreciated.
