Art Donation to Saint Damien Pediatric Hospital
The "Caribbean Beach Angel" painting was donated to Friends of the Orphans / Neustros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) for their Saint Damien Pediatric Hospital in Tabarre, Haiti. (NPH is Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters".) NPH cares for orphaned and abandoned children in Latin America and the Caribbean. The organization is known as "Nos Petit Frères et Sœurs" (NPFS) in Haiti. The pediatric hospital is the only children's hospital in Haiti.
Only a few hundred miles south of Florida, USA, is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, the island nation of Haiti. Here, a fifth of all children die before they reach the age of five and the life expectancy rate is only 48 years old. Father William Wasson founded Nos Petit Frères et Sœurs (NPFS), Our Little Brothers and Sisters, in 1988.
