Haiti soccer team captain wears a Westmeath jersey with pride
Here is photo of team captain George wearing a jersey sent to him by a family in Mullingar. George led out his winning team at St Mark's to victory in late 2011.
The bigger and more important picture is that, by donating to Trócaire, Irish people contributed €7.58 million to the Haiti relief efforts, half of which came from parish collections. That money was used to provide food to 1.5 million people, healthcare to one million people and shelter to 160,000 people.
The jersey project is just a symbol of the solidarity and friendship that exists, born out of tragedy. Once again, Irish people show themselves to be exceptionally generous and sensitive to the needs of others.
