Deacon Patrick Moynihan received Brown's John Hope Award for Public Service, co-sponsored by the Brown Alumni Association and the Swearer Center for Public Service. As part of this honor, he addressed the John Hope Forum on Friday, October 26th at Brown University. Deacon Moynihan led a challenging conversation on the face of Haiti and the dynamics of international aid. Guided by the Catholic missionary principles of subsidiarity and solidarity, he discussed his commitment to building the education and leadership of Haiti from within--a strategy he believes is more effective than the NGO model.

On Thursday, September 6th, community members from the Rhode Island area gathered at the Vanity Restaurant in Providence in support of The Haitian Project. Raising funds through donations and raffle tickets, it was a cheerful assembly of old and new friends. “The venue was fun and the folks at Vanity could not have been more accommodating,” says Matt Smith, THP Board Chair. “Many of our long standing supporters attended, and there were several new faces in the crowd, who were eager to learn more about THP and its mission in Haiti. It was a great way to spend a Thursday evening.” Thank you to Matt as well as THP Board Member Jay Murphy and local community supporter Dan Murphy who organized the evening. Events such as these provide us with discernible evidence of the solidarity existing between our US and Haitian communities.
