Provo Man Building Haiti Orphanage

PROVO, UTAH -- A retired Provo, Utah man is trying to build an orphanage in Haiti, and wants returned LDS missionaries who served there to help. Weston Whatcott doesn't know anything about construction, but is seeking funds to build a 50-bed, $225,000 facility to meet the needs of the Haitian people. He had planned to poor the footings for the building on February 15th after raising $57,000 of the needed funds. His Foyer de Sion (House of Zion) will have its own generator and be hurricane-proof. And it will be expandable to 300 beds. Whatcott has enlisted the help of neighbor Paul Cook who is organizing the help of returned missionaries who will go to Haiti to help with the construction.
