NORTH DAKOTA:

This story is a miracle!  Our wonderful Suzanne was flipping through the freecycle website and noticed a lady by the name of Shelley advertising that she and her family were traveling to South Dakota that week to help the victims of the floods.  She said they were in desperate need of humanitarian supplies so of course Suzanne gaver her a call.  Within a few days, Shelley was at Suzanne's house and had loaded half a trailer with supplies that had been waiting for her to come get them!

AFGHANISTAN
October 2008:
When Serving With Smiles heard from a family member of Utah serviceman Kadleck that village children in Afghanistan did not have the basic hygiene items they needed, the SWS children prepared a special Christmas shipment of hygiene kits to send back with the serviceman. We hear that the children and families were very grateful for the kits they received.  12/2008


SOUTH AFRICA:
June 2008
The children of Serving with Smiles assembled 50 hygiene kits and 50 school kits and donated the kits to The Jenny Phillips Choir that traveled from Utah and distributed the kits to needy school children in Africa. The look on the little boy's face as he is opening a box of crayons lovingly sent from our SWS children makes all our efforts worth it!


 










































HAITI:
September 2009
The children of Serving With Smiles colored, glued, sewed and assembled many items that were distributed to less fortunate children in Haiti.   Our friend Jen Bainum took blankets and bead geckos to the orphanage where she worked to help handicapped children. 





This is Harold, Jen's guide and translator.  He was so grateful
for the blankets that SWS donated to his family.  He is the
father of 3 children and they live in a tent

  The bead geckos were a huge hit with the kids!

--> Nice blankets!!

 THANKS JEN!!


HEALING HANDS FOR HAITI:
2008






















Kathy Anderson, of Healing Hands for Haiti, told us that this little boy was elated to receive the picture book made by the Serving With Smiles children. He showed it to everyone and was eager to share it with all the other children. 10/2008




GUATEMALA & EL SALVADOR:
2008 and August 2009

Kristie Rogers and her husband go around the world donating dental work humanitarian aid.  She reported about their recent trip to Honduras and spoke to the children about the importance of what they were doing and promised to return pictures so the children could see the joy they would bring to other children by their acts of service and hard work.  SWS gave Kristie 100 hygiene kits, 8 quilts and dozens of bracelets and geckos.  We also donated 20 hygiene kits and 25 ties for their trip to El Salvador in August 2009.



IRAQ:
2007 and 2009

What a treat is was to have Roseanne Gunther come!  She spoke on the importance of humanitarian work and kindness in the world. We had over 100 children attend the project. Roseanne is a pioneer in the humanitarian world and has spearheaded most of the progress that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has made regarding humanitarian work in the world. We were so blessed to be with her! She is a peacemaker and a warrior at the same time. Roseanne has been a tremendous inspiration to Corinne and Liz.  12/2007  Over the years, we have donated over 600 humanitarian kits to Roseanne to be sent to Iraq!

 
 

Roseanne showing the children pictures of where the humanitarian kits go after the children finish assembling them. The children were intrigued at the idea that the kits and other items go all over the world helping people they have never met! Many of the items that the children made this month were sent with Roseanne's organization to schoolchildren in Iraq.









ZAMBIA:
We haven't sent supplies here, but Conner Boyack was kind enough to join us!  He spoke to the children about the conditions in Zambia and how the projects and kits they were doing that day would be greatly appreciated by the children in Africa. He told them that Mothers Without Borders would pass out the kits to kids that really need them. He told them how awesome it was that they were doing service for other children and how happy it made them when they got even just a tube of toothpaste.



PERU:
April 2009
The Serving With Smiles children sent supplies with Kim Swallow and her husband to take to the remote and impoverished village of Huilloq, Peru in March 2009. The SWS children donated hygiene kits, reading glasses, sweaters, vitamins and more!  4/2009
