The Children You Have Helped

Because of your generosity, we are now better able to accomplish our mission of serving the most vulnerable children in Haiti.  The vehicle you helped us purchase and maintain is a vital part of our daily work.

 Today, Mercy & Sharing:

  • Feeds over 2000 people per day
  • Educates over 1000 children per day
  • Cares full time for over 120 orphans; half of whom are disabled
  • Employees over 220 Haitians
  • Provides clean water for over 1000 people per day

 

We are solely supported by the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations and we receive no government funding.  Our Directors contribute more than 100% of U.S. administrative expenses, so your donations go directly to helping kids in Haiti. 

The heart of our organization is Mercy & Sharing Village.  It has been my dream for 18 years to have a safe haven for vulnerable children!  On 17 walled acres 30 miles from Port-au-Prince, we operate three orphanage buildings, a primary school, a vocational training program, and host a Christian worshiping community.  On this campus, 121 orphans live full time, 200 students from the local community attend school, 50 adults receive vocational training and 150 families come to get clean drinking water.  Half of the orphans at Mercy & Sharing Village are disabled.  This is why we have recently completed a Rehabilitation and Therapy Center to provide for their special needs.

Our focus is simple: to provide the best care we can for children today while creating opportunity for them to become independent tomorrow.

Please watch this video to see some of the children you are helping.

Solar Panels Chosen

Dear Friends,

Thanks so much for your support of kids in Haiti!  Because of your generosity, we will be purchasing solar panels to help insure reliable electricity for the orphans at Mercy & Sharing Village.

http://haitichildren.com/projects/mercy-sharing-village-full/

We have chosen Sun Electronics in Miami as our vendor for the solar panels and will be finalizing the details of the purchase soon.  Then we will ship the panels to Haiti where they will be installed by a group of skilled volunteers.

This means 122 orphans and the staff members who care for them will have electricity at night to help with feeding, bathing and caring for sick children.

Patrick (pictured here) is one of the children you are helping.  He just had hernia surgery but now is doing very well!

Please share this challenge grant with your friends and consider giving again to help us complete this project -- only $5000 left to raise AND EVERY DOLLAR WILL BE MATCHED BY A GENEROUS DONOR.

Thank you!!

Vehicle Purchased!

New Vehicle Just Purchased!
New Vehicle Just Purchased!

Dear Friends,

We are so excited to share with you a picture of the vehicle Mercy & Sharing was able to purchase because of your generosity!

This truck has the extended cab and payload bed we need to transport children and supplies AND the rugged design necessary to endure the difficult roadways in and around Port-au-Prince.  The vehicle will reside at Mercy & Sharing Village where we care for 120 orphans (half of whom are disabled) and have a school for 250 students.

Any NEW donations you make to this project will be used for maintenance and fuel for this vehicle.

I also want to encourage you to participate in our new project to install solar panels at Mercy & Sharing Village http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/haiti-solar-panels-for-school-and-orphanage/ .  THESE DONATIONS WILL BE MATCHED BY A GENEROUS DONOR -- SO YOUR IMPACT IS DOUBLED!!

Thanks again for your compassion for children in Haiti.  Please know that your donations will have an immediate impact because this truck allows us to better care for the kids at Mercy & Sharing Village!

From the heart,

Louis
