Hope for Abandoned Babies

Dear Friends,

You are giving hope to abandoned children in Haiti!  Thank you!  

We are excited to announce that Mercy & Sharing is re-establishing the Abandoned Baby Triage Center!  Mercy & Sharing operated the Abandoned Baby Triage Center at the HUEH (Haiti’s University and Educational Hospital) in Port-au-Prince from 1995 to 2010.  We stepped in to help because little or no care was being provided for abandoned children at the HUEH.  Kids of all ages with nowhere to turn were left to die in a small room.  Because of Mercy & Sharing, hundreds of innocent children survived!  Mercy & Sharing supplied clean water, baby formula, food, medicines, and beds to children who had been abandoned.   Following the earthquake of 2010, the Abandoned Triage Center was discontinued when the building was damaged.  32 children were moved to a local children’s home as a part of the earthquake relief effort.  Since the earthquake, however, this children’s home has not agreed to take in more children, nor has the Haitian government reinstituted the Abandoned Baby Triage Center.  For over 2.5 years, children left on the grounds of the government hospital have had no one to care for them and no place to turn. 

Mercy & Sharing has been asked by the Haitian Social Services to reinstitute the Abandoned Baby Triage Center! Mercy & Sharing will provide:

  • Formula, food, shelter, diapers, and medical care
  • Clean living conditions and sufficient bedding for the children
  • Trained staff to care for the abandoned children
  • Placement referrals through IBESR to reputable orphanages

In addition to the re-opening of the ABTC, Mercy & Sharing is also making plans to expand the medical clinic at Mercy & Sharing Village.  We want to continue to provide the best possible care for the 126 orphans living there as well as extend this care to the local community of Williamson.  We plan to retrofit an ambulance and take it into the community to offer basic clinical services!

We are so thankful for your support! Your gifts have made these new efforts possible!  Because of you, we have been able to provide first-rate medical care for precious children and lay the groundwork for expansion. 

Thank you!

Back 2 School!!!

JB School Boy

Dear Friends,

Because of your generosity and support, 663 students at Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School will be back in class on September 2, 2013! During the summer, they have participated in organized activities in the morning and received a hot, nutritious meal each day.  Now that school is starting again, they will soon be back in a rigorous routine of academics.

Mercy & Sharing is excited to announce that 99% of all students at John Branchizio school passed the National Exam!  This compares to the national average in Haiti of 70% and is quite an achievement for the students and teachers.

This year, we have added an 11th grade class.  The well and chlorination system is working so that each child receives clean drinking water.  Mercy & Sharing has also initiated a Mentor Speaking Program where community leaders speak to the students about their careers.  Hearing from a succesful person encourages students to continue their studies.  So far, students have heard inspirational messages from physicians, attorneys, business leaders, and a hotel owner.

With the funds that you have donated, we will soon be purchasing some new desks and chairs.  These improvements will enhance the educational experience for students and teachers alike.

Please continue to support this project and know that you are making a DIRECT impact on the lives of students who are all dreaming about their futures.

Warmly,

Jul 5, 2013

The HUGE Difference You are Making

The Streets of Port-au-Prince
The Streets of Port-au-Prince

I just returned from Haiti and I want to convey my personal thanks to you for the HUGE difference you are making in the lives of precious orphans!  I've included some pictures with this report that illustrate the stark contrast in Haiti.  On one hand, there are hundreds of thousands of children enslaved, sold into the sex trade, and/or wandering the trash laden streets of Port-au-Prince.  On the other hand, there are the orphans you are helping who have a safe place to live, loving nannies, medical care, clothing, education, food and hope for the future!

Did you know that Mercy & Sharing is the ONLY organization in Haiti actively accepting disabled children into full time care?  We have 39 nannies working around the clock to care for these kids.  Were it not for Mercy & Sharing, these amazing orphans would be struggling on the streets or dead. 

The orphans at Mercy & Sharing Village aren't busy trying to survive.  Rather, they are busy dreaming about the future.  I talked to many children this past weekend who wanted to be teachers, doctors, singers, and mechanics when they grow up.  They smile and laugh and run and play because you are providing what they need to thrive!  Thank you!

Please continue your support of these amazing little heroes.  You honor their courage with your support and with sharing this project with your friends, families, and co-workers.  

Please contact me directly any time you have questions or thoughts about Mercy & Sharing's work in Haiti.

Warmly,
