PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle has donated sixty five bibs to Marc Smoorenburg of Keijzer. In branding for their ‘Welcome Baby Bag’ project Mid Isle had ordered baby bibs. Unfortunately when the bibs arrived they were not up to spec, hence the manufacturer sent us a second perfect batch.
Mid Isle were reluctant to see these bibs go to waste, so they decided to look around to see where they could best be used. Marc Smoorenburg has been sending required items and goods to Haiti twice a year. We learnt that Marc’s father is a pastor and has been a missionary for thirty five years.
Marc’s father has set up a mission in Haiti that has a home for the elderly, an orphanage and a school. They presently have 18 babies at the mission and told us the bibs would be very useful.
Even though the mission has suffered disasters back to back, with funding they have been able to keep the mission going.
