This past Sunday the NBRPA wrapped up its 2016 goodwill trip to Haiti. The group spent their final day in the country visiting children in the orphanage known as the Crèche.

Mike Brown, Anthony Bonner, Taj McWilliams-Franklin, Mamadou N’diaye, Robert Reid and Charles “Choo” Smith spent the day hanging out with the children in the orphanage, playing games and getting to know all of the kids. Reflecting on a great trip, our Legends of Basketball were thrilled to give back in Haiti and are extremely grateful of the NBRPA’s continued efforts to help rebuild the country.

The NBRPA thanks all of its sponsors, partners, and members who helped make the 2016 Haiti goodwill trip a success. Stay tuned to the NBRPA’s website for a full recap of the 2016 Haiti goodwill trip.
