Irish Village Markets proud to support Kenscoff Kitchen 400 Project

All next week collections will be taking place at Irish Village Markets in support of the Kenscoff Kitchen 400 Project, Haiti.

We are delighted to be in a position to support this worthwhile cause and hope everyone coming to the markets will keep an eye out and perhaps drop some change their way.

The why:

On 12th January 2010, Haiti, already the poorest country in the Western World, was hit by a huge earthquake that devastated it’s largest centre of population – the capital, Port-au-Prince. The why:

In excess of 230,000 people were killed whilst more than 1.6 million were displaced out of their damaged or destroyed homes.

The background:

The home in Kenscoff, Haiti was opened in 1987 and currently caters for in excess of 400 resident children.  An additional 240 children live with extended family or in student housing offsite that receives NPH support.

The property has an elementary school, Special Needs clinic, playgrounds, chapel and a small kitchen.  The children are not placed for adoption but instead are given a permanent home within the loving NPH family.

The Aim:

To build a new kitchen capable of catering for up to 1500 meals per day in order to improve the capacity of NPH, a successful organisation already providing for the needs of hundreds of children every day.
