Prison Ministry Programs from the United States have
provided to Haiti Prison Ministry a large collection of clothing to
be donated to the Haitian National Penitentiary. The donation was
an urgent response to several appeals for food, medicine and
clothing made by
Haiti Prison Commissioner Herman Toussaint.
The donation was the first among several items pledged by US
churches and affiliated overseas Prison Ministry Programs. Other
items pledged include: bibles, toothpaste, soap, food, medicine and
Discussions are being held with other local organizations to
determine the feasibility of coordinating joint vocational and
educational programs for Haitian inmates.
