Proposed activities:

1.        Four Health Fairs.  (600 in Gonaives x 2 and 300 in two other places.) Fairs will include: first aid, a well baby check/ nutritional screening, blood pressure check, diabetic screening, crafts for the children, a Bible story station, a place to pick up a meal, a place for water, etc.
