2019/20 AMERICAS WINNER - Rebecca

  • By Rebecca Melissa Charles · Haiti, Americas

When the devastating earthquake hit Haiti in 2010, Rebecca wanted to help the children affected, so she started the Happy Kids foundation. The charity visits orphanages to deliver donations of clothes and gifts, and on Saturdays the volunteers hold reading and writing classes for the children. Their devotion to helping the children enjoy life again ensures the foundation’s motto – ‘Sourire et Partage' ('Smile and Share') – is brought to life.
