Student & Family Highlight: Linksky Pierre
My name is Marckenson Pierre and I am Linsky Pierre’s father.
Linsky is the light of my life. He makes me happy every day. Linsky loves school and I am so grateful for the Nourish Every Child scholarship. Without the scholarship Linsky would not be able to go to school because I could not afford to pay for his tuition or books. Most days it is a struggle to feed my family.
The current political unrest in Haiti has impacted my family greatly. I am unable to run my business because of the road blocks and gas shortages. I normally travel to Port au Prince to purchase stock and then resell them in the market. Being unable to feed your family makes me feel terrible and I am sick and tired of the horrible conditions in our country.
I have such hopes and dreams for Linsky. He is such a smart and passionate boy. I hope he passes all his exams and the situation in Haiti improves so that he may have a better life than I have had. I would like to encourage the donors to continue to helping as many children as they can because you are making such a difference.
Thank you so much!
