ETE CAMP 2020
(adapted with special precautions due to Covid-19)
Thank you for your support!
With deep sorrow, we share that two of our greatest cheerleaders passed away this year on May 14 and May 26, Granni Kan (ETE Camp’s Grandmother) and Keith Love (ETE Camp’s Big Brother), respectively.
With great pride, we dedicate this summer’s program, ETE Camp 2020, to them in addition to continuing Garry Gilbert’s legacy. We will continue to make you proud!
In Granni Kan’s old age, every April, she would carefully pack the doums (huge shipment containers) with all of ETE Camp’s supplies and necessities. She sported her ETE Camp t-shirts and wore the wristband daily until her passing. She bragged to her friends about us and included us in her daily prayers. Granni Kan, native of Hinche, our ancestor, we stand on your shoulders.
Every single year, on the eves of ETE Camp, Mr. Love would always ask “what is left to do to make sure our kids in Haiti have an outstanding summer?” With that, he’d complete our wish list and wish us luck and success. We’re forever grateful and blessed to have a big brother watching over us, always. Our thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones.
“I’ve found that mourning is exhausting, and that it takes an even greater amount of energy to simultaneously push forward and keep going. The magnitude of their love, support, and belief in us proves everlasting and will never be in vain. This is where we renew our strength to continue to thrive.”
