Remember the Season

Healing Art Missions provides vital health care and educational services in the area around Dumay, Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Some of the funds to operate this mission are obtained by purchasing original art produced by Haitian artists and reselling it at auctions in Ohio, Washington and this year for the first time in Asheville. All the proceeds from this auction go to Haiti, either to pay the artists for their work or in the form of medicine, supplies and salaries for Haitians delivering these desperately needed services.

You are invited to read more about Healing Art Missions at www.healingartmissions.org and to bid on the more than 150 works to be offered at auction.

HAM founder Dr. Tracee Karaffa will deliver a short presentation on the work of the organization at the Saturday evening event. Both events are at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church at the corner of Merrimon Avenue and Gracelyn Road in Asheville.

You can hear an interview with Dr. Karaffa on WCQS, (88.1 FM or streaming on the web) at 12:09 PM on Wednesday, December 5.
