Brno – Some abstract paintings by Libor Eyer, which were decorated with Galeryja9 in Brno just a few days ago, will help pay for the refurbishment of the toilets and the painting of the school in the remote Haitian Baie de Henne area. It is for this purpose that the painter and the adoptive parent donated money in one person. The purchase of five paintings and contributions from visitors of Galeryje9 managed to get 22 601 crowns.
According to its author, the exhibition of paintings helped to raise awareness of the situation in Haiti and how to help there. “A lot of people were surprised that I organized the exhibition to help Haiti. Many of them then thought about it. I feel good about it,” says Libor Eyer, who handed over the sealed cash box with the proceeds of Klára Lőffelmannová from the Archdiocesan Charity Olomouc on Friday, April 26th.
More than 22 000 crowns will help pay for the refurbishment of toilets that are already out of service, as well as the painting of the school in Haitian Baie de Henne. There are 250 children from all over the world and some of them, unfortunately, have various diseases due to the poor condition of the toilets. “This should change after the reconstruction,” says humanitarian worker Klára Lőffelmannová and adds: “I liked the idea of Libor Eyer to organize a benefit exhibition right from the start. We appreciate the fact that although she has her own family, she supports a little girl from far Haiti in education and is looking for other ways to help in this collapsed state. I’m glad that there are such wonderful people among our adoptive parents.”
