These are some of the kids who received shoes at the Public Library in French Harbour. We connected up with Miss Joan who gave us shoe sizes of the kids who needed shoes in order to go to school.
Here is a link to my other blog if you want to see more photos and read about it
We had a wonderful surprise visit at the shop last week. We are starting to get many repeat visits from people who have returned to the Island again. Ed and Judy Lamb from Florida cruised into Roatan on Jan 25th loaded down with pencils for the children of the island. How kind! We had a wonderful visit together catching up on news and appreciated seeing them again.
The Made in Roatan shop is more then a 'shopping experience'. It is also a place to connect, to laugh, to listen to stories (yes I have ALOT of stories! *s*) If you need help finding things, or you want a tour but are nervous we can help you find a tour. Please see the island.. it is worth seeing.. so beautiful!
you can read more about the Rusty Fish and even watch a video which will give you a better idea of the whole process as well as how it helps many local people here on the island.
