- Tania Grace finished her CNA training & just got hired in her new field of elderly care.
- Provision of a new house in Haiti - across the street from AP - for LESS annual rent!

- Financial Support (monthly or one time gifts):
We are still in crucial need of individual and/or dedicated monthly donations going into 2014.
This will prevent Rebecca from having to extend her contract at the end of January, give us the stability to remain on task IN Haiti for the coming year(s), and for her to focus on midwifery training & the birthing center full time next year.
Our current budget is $2800/month & we received 40% of that amount the last two quarters.
Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any monthly support start up or changes, so that we can notify Apparent Project. For one time giving or checks, place “Barlow family” in the comments area.
