God's Littlest Angels Inc

God's Littlest Angels is dedicated to helping the children and families of Haiti by providing intensive nursery care for premature, malnourished, and abandoned children. We will assist in seeking outside help for children needing surgical or medical treatment not available in Haiti. We will also assist in placing abandoned children with adoptive families. We will provide education to children who cannot afford to go to school through a sponsorship program. We will provide teachers and schooling for the children in the orphanage so that they also will receive an education. Our purpose is to help the children of Haiti in any way we can and to spread the word of God to each person we serve.

Rainwater - It can't be just run off........

The challenge of clean water doesn't get any easier.   

The cost of living in Haiti keeps going up.

The equipment necessary to drill a well on our property and drill one deep enough and through hard rocks barely exists.

By barely exists, I mean that in the entire country - of a population of around 9 million people - there is only one drill that can drill that deep.   When that drill bit breaks, when that equipment malfunctions there is no back up plan.    They have to ship another one in from the United States.

So, while that effort is continuing to attempt to move forward, we have made some structural changes to the design plan of our property to significantly increase the rainwater run off collection.    Rain water will be a significant part of our efforts to reduce the cost and increase the quality of the water that we have available.

We have one cistern built under one of our toddler houses and have another one under construction underneath our school building.   In addition to that, there are rainwater collection systems going in on all of the roofs and many of the driveways to enable collection of the rainwater to help defer the cost of water.

No, we are not going to be drinking the rainwater directly but using it to avoid having to buy truckloads of water.   Either way, we will be running the water through our filtration system.

The funds that are collected are going to be used for two things - to help continue to attempt to put a well in on the property and to enhance and complete a rainwater collection system that will be a substantial assistance in obtaining a less expensive and cleaner source of water.

Thank you for your support of our efforts to provide clean water for the kids at GLA.

Feeding Babies - the need continues!

So, how are we doing at feeding the babies in Haiti?   They are getting fed.

Every day, all 65 of our babies who need formula are getting what they need.   It is changing the lives of many children. 

Because of the support of many people like yourselves, we are able to keep feeding the children.   Providing them with the strength and energy that they need to overcome the challenges that they face.

Challenges of disease.

Challenges of prematurity.

Challenges of trauma and abandonment.

Challenges of life in a third world country.

They have a chance because we are able to give them the support that they need.

A large part of that comes from the help that good food - predominantly the right type of formula gives them.

And that comes from you.

That comes from your help.   Your help with providing the food and formula for our kids is saving lives.

And the need continues.   We have 65 babies at the orphanage and while the number fluctuates, it never goes away.

The need is always present.

Thank you for helping us meet that need.

We made it!

Education isn't free.   There are a lot of people who aren't able to afford to send their kids to school.  The average cost of schooling for a year is just under 100% of the average wages.    That means that many of the children in Haiti aren't able to attend school.

Thanks to the generosity of many, both on here and elsewhere, we were able to provide an education for over 200 kids in Haiti for the 2013-2014 school year!   The families of these children thank you for your generosity and your willingness to help them provide a future for their children.

School in Haiti runs from October to June (rather than the typical American schedule).   When the kids aren't in school, they do a lot of what typical school children do the world over.    They play with their friends - but they also have to do a lot more work to help around the house.    And they have to use their imaginations much more vividly to play because they don't have the toys and balls and bikes that 1st World kids have.

After the school year is complete, we will be getting report cards to evaluate the students progress and make sure they qualify for next year.    Then we'll determine who qualifies and how many kids we need to help for the 2014-2015 school year.

On behalf of the kids,

Tom
