Cape May County Village in Bord de Mer, Haiti began with a humble start three years ago by the Social Justice Committee of Our Lady of the Angels Church, Cape May Court House.
Since then the project has been embraced countywide by residents and vacationers alike who have supported the Village through fundraisers and by making monetary donations in their names or as remembrances for loved ones.
Schools, youth groups, and organizations held special events with the proceeds earmarked for Cape May County Village.
The County’s namesake village is a community of fifteen families whose lives were changed when they moved into sturdy cinder block homes last year.
This northern coastal village was further changed when Bord de Mer School opened in 2008. Cape May County New Jerseyans raised funds for 333 students to attend school for the year.
Phase 3 now in full swing, strives for self-sufficiency by making nutrition available and affordable on a daily basis. Protein rich food sources are being introduced. Twenty-six goats, 12 cows and one bull will be reared under the auspices of Food for Poor and a tract of arable land will be cleared, tilled, and cultivated with the entire yield designated for Villagers.
Volunteers and donors are needed and welcome to see Phase 3 to completion. To learn more or to make a donation write: P.O. Box 711, Cape May Court House, NJ 08210 or visit: www.CapeMayCountyVillage.com.
