A small group of students from Central College has spent the past week-and-a-half working with United Christians International in Pella’s sister city in Hait. The nine students have been working with refugees that fled to Pignon, Haiti, in the aftermath of January’s earthquakes.

The students are performing a variety of tasks, including pouring concrete floors in homes, holding vacation Bible schools and teaching English in the community. The students began their work on July 19th and will return on August 3rd.
