Food for the Poor, Inc Banana Bark Handcrafted Cards Help Haitian Parents Feed Family

Food for the Poor, Inc Banana Bark Handcrafted Cards Help Haitian Parents Feed Family

A good friend of mine brought some haitian-handcrafted cards to show me. His daughter loves them so much that she did not want him to give them away. After I read about the organization, I decided to find out more about it by going online. From their field workers, I found current information on the dire situation in Haiti.

These handcrafted cards are made of natural resources, banana barks that are found all over the island. The men and women who make these cards hope customers enjoy their unique beauty and will share them with others. By buying or ordering a packet from them, you will be providing much-needed income for a family living in the poorest country in our hemisphere.

These cards provide income for parents who just want to earn a living to support their families. Bear in mind that most Haitians are desperately poor and earn less than a dollar or two a day. By working on the Banana Bark Program, they are able to get their dignity back and reach some level of self-sufficiency.

Now is the time to order and send banana bark cards.

As for me, I am going to order a few packets of Christmas and all-occasion banana bark cards now.
