Grefe & Sidney attorney Robert Thole recently visited Haiti on an eight day education and healthcare based service trip with a group of volunteers from his hometown of Dyersville, Iowa. The area the group focuses on is located in remote mountain villages near the Dominican Republic border. These villages have no electricity, running water, or plumbing, and little to no access to public services. Throughout the year, local Iowa schools, businesses, and churches hold fundraisers with 100% of the proceeds going directly to subsidizing student tuition, building rural schools and clinics, and paying nurse and teacher salaries. Pictured below is a school Thole’s group helped fund.
