St. Damien Tilapia Fish Farm

Thanks to the most generous help of Bill Horan, Mike Picchietti and the expert team of Operation Blessing, St. Damien Pediatric Hospital started it’s tilapia farm today, due to the expert project leadership and fully donated project management, and staff formation, by these good friends!

Our costs were material and labor of the actual farm. NPH Italy Francesca Rava helped with funding for the project.

We began with 8,000 tilapia today.

This is part of an effort toward sustainable and local production of protein and vitamin rich food for the hospital and NPH homes and schools, and an additional source of income for the hospital.

We look forward to increasing our agricultural yields and fish production in the future.

Thanks to all for your support!

Fr. Rick Frechette
National Director, NPH Haiti
