Every child deserves hope for their future.
Children living in orphanages are the most vulnerable and voiceless in society and most often do not get their basic needs met including healthcare and education. We located a dilapidated orphanage in the mountainous town of Kenscoff, Haiti, just outside of the capital Port-au-Prince. There were 50 children ages 2-18 who were severely malnourished and had no one to care for them. In addition, these children had never attended school.
Provide these children with what they need to survive and hopefully thrive.
With heavy yet determined hearts, our staff got to work immediately to provide 3 nutritious meals per day, hire a cook to prepare the meals and caretakers to not only provide the children with kindness and nurturing and assured that the children no longer had to carry out arduous chores to maintain the household. After we were certain the children's basic needs were met we enrolled them in school. The children were so proud to put on their uniforms and attend school with the other children.
The story of children trapped in orphanages with scarce resources is not uncommon and solutions are not always easy, but by focusing on one child at a time we can change the world. For this orphanage we put in place caretakers, a nutritious menu, enrolled children in school and ensured their security. Because of these interventions their lives were saved.
We need your help in sustaining these essential programs.
For the first time in their lives, the children were able to attend school.
For the first time these children have people to care for them.
They have caretakers who lovingly brush and braid their hair for school.
The kids are now able to be kids and have fun without worrying about doing all of the orphanage chores.
