International Trends and Services
This facet focuses on rendering the utmost service and assistance to global friends, especially those living in African and Caribbean countries. In this area, the Missouri City (TX) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated has contributed as follows in recent years:
The chapter sorted and assembled 500 Dignity Kits for donation to Haitian families. Representatives from the Seventh Day Adventist Conference Center in St. Mary’s, Florida hand delivered and distributed the kits at the Hospital Adventista in Port Au Prince, Haiti. The kits contained toiletries and other sanitary items.
Working with the NBA Retired Players Association, the chapter donated baby items to the International Baby Shower in Haiti. Connecting Link Mario Elie, transported and distributed the items to a hospital run by the Global Institute for Community Health and Development/University of Miami School of medicine.
The chapter also purchased Maama Kits containing sanitary supplies for expectant African women.
