Haiti - Education : The Consul General of Haiti in New York runs for education !
Charles A. Forbin, the Consul General of Hait in New York, participated in The Concern Spring Run for Education for Haiti in Central Park, an annual run organized by Concern Worldwide U.S. Inc.

The Consul completed this 4-miles run (6.44 km) in 43 minutes followed by the Consulate staff who completed the run in 44 minutes. Charles A. Forbin declared "As soon as I heard about the run and what the cause was for, I signed up. It's especially important that we support organizations which aspire to do good for our country. [...] The run cost only 20 dollars to sign up, and members of the consulate raised over $1,000.00 toward education in Haiti. Every $5 gives a month's supply of classroom materials for an entire class, while $50 provides uniforms and shoes for 2 children, $90 provides a student’s books for a year, and every $1000 gives desks, chairs, pencils, chalk and a blackboard for 50 students..."

Nearly 1,700 runners and walkers showed their support for education in Haiti by participating in the run. Concern Worlwide's monetary goal was to raise $155,000 but the day ended with a whopping $195,844.

Congratulations to the Consul General of Haiti in New York and all his staff, who seem to have no limits when it is a question to helping the country.
