Nineteen year old Britney Gengel, a beautiful, fearless and compassionate young lady traveled to the country of Haiti with her school to help children. Tragically a catastrophic earthquake hit, collapsing the hotel she was in.
Before her death, she had sent a text to her mom saying “They love us so much and everyone is so happy. They love what they have and they work so hard to get nowhere, yet they are all so appreciative. I want to move here and start an orphanage myself.”
Fulfilling Britney’s last wish, her family decided to start the Be Like Brit Foundation, Inc. and build her orphanage in Haiti. This 19,000 sq. ft earthquake proof orphanage shaped in the letter B for Brit, is home to sixty-six children.
We proudly supported the Be Like Brit orphanage clinic with a donation of medical diagnostic equipment to assist in the healthcare of the children at the orphanage and members of the surrounding community.
