It seems like the end of another year is cause for reflection. Many of us are lucky to spend the holidays surrounded by family and friends, enjoying feasts and treats in homes blessed with modern conveniences including heat, lights, and running water. We often take this for granted.
I can’t help but think about people near and dear to my heart – the resilient people of Haiti. It was one year ago that I was preparing for a mission trip there with Reiser Relief (www.reiserrelief.org) when I got a call that Nicus Software was making a generous donation to the Reiser Relief organization. Their mission is to provide relief, hope, and dignity to the most vulnerable people of Haiti. We all know Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, but I was humbled by the incredible Haitian spirit despite their deplorable living conditions and lack of things we take for granted. Unfortunately, the vulnerabilities and needs are even bigger after they endured the wrath of Hurricane Matthew just two months ago.
I am encouraged by the continuous support from generous people and organizations, like Nicus, who open their heart to help those in need. If you would like more information about Nicus’ charitable campaigns, please visit: https://dev-nicus.pantheonsite.io/community.
Until next time,
