Nick and Madeleine Avignon are Haitian-born Americans who work in southern Haiti with COFHED, a nonprofit organization engaged in long-term community-based development work. In the village of Lougou, they are focused on community development projects including a microcredit program and a construction project for a kindergarten.
In 2018, Woodland helped raise $17,464 toward one of their construction projects. These donations enabled them to add two bedrooms and one bathroom toward a goal of five bedrooms and three bathrooms to equip the mission with the capacity to receive visitors from Haiti and abroad in support of COFHED’s community engagement work.
COFHED says a heartfelt thank you to all those who gave!
