Last week, representatives of Handicap International and IOM (International
Organisation for Migration) visited the Children's home and commented on how
special the project was and the positive feeling that the home has. We continue
to care for some of Haiti’s most vulnerable children currently we have about 70
children on the program, though at least 20 of these are on a waiting list.
Each week we have new families arrive with their children who are physically or
mentally disabled. Sadly, unless we can raise more money we can’t help these
new families. We’re already at full capacity, but have a desire to see the
project expand and to be able to care for more children. Each child is treated
individually, so we do not want to bring more children into the program until we
are sure we have to staff and resources to be able to show them the love and
care they deserve. At the moment we limit the number of children a day to 15 to
ensure this. By continuing your help and support we can continue to provide
respite care for these children and hopefully expand the project to give more
physically and mentally disabled children the support they might not receive
The project is soon to invest in a motorbike for the children’s home
administrator to enable us to increase the influence of the project. The bike
will enable him to go and minister to children who live further from the home,
support struggling families and to transport some children to the home on
specific days if necessary. We want him to be able to invite more children to
come join the children’s home, as there is no other centre that cares
particularly for disabled children in the surrounding area, but unfortunately
children currently have to be added to a waiting list.
On the six month anniversary of the tragic earthquake that devastated Haiti we've launched
a new campaign called 'We Won't Forget.' So many in the world have already
forgotten this desperate little nation. The call we're making to our supporters
is to declare that you won't forget. We would ask that you spend just a few minutes to visit our new

We need your help to continue all our work. The emergency remains, and the crisis is still urgent.
Thank you for all your support! We would ask you to continue your support, to
enable us to expand our work to enable us to help the huge numbers of children
who desperately need it.
