Lives Dedicated To Helping Through Ministry
Poverty in Haiti is rampant. Unfortunately children are typically the victims. Parents who don’t have means to care for their children will often choose to give them to an orphanage or to another household so they have fewer mouths to feed. They hope that the child’s new “owner” will properly care for the child, however, this is almost always not the case. Who we minister to are:
- Families with malnourished children
- Single mothers with little or no means of support
- Single pregnant women
- “At Risk” families and pregnant women, who because of abject poverty, would be most inclined to give up their children to orphanages or to offer them as “house slaves” (known as “restaveks.”)
If you don’t believe you can make a difference or change the world, remember the story of the little boy who after a storm was throwing starfish back into the sea one at a time. To the old man who said he was “wasting his time and not making a difference,” he answered as he threw yet another starfish in the sea, “It made a difference for that one!” Help us change lives… one child and one family at a time! It does make a difference for that one!
By sharing the Good News of the Gospel with these families it helps bring them to understand that their children are a gift to nurture. Help us prevent orphanage placement or child slavery for children such as these. There are so many out there, but we can help one at a time. Families are struggling in Haiti, but they do not have to be left hopeless. There is hope! We can help them conquer circumstances and restore their lives! Please join us in making a huge difference in the lives of people in Haiti.
