Furthering support for Haiti's most vulnerable

Thank you for your continued interest and support for REBUILD. It is with the dedication of people like you that allows our organization to grow! As you know, it is very important to RG that we help improve the quality of life for all Haitians and orphans are among the neediest of the population. 

We're pleased to say that through our partnership with Carribean Lodge, we have facilitated bunk bed donations to the MEPOCEC orphanage, allowing the children to leave the floor for a clean and comfortable place to sleep.

Aside from basic needs, all children need a little creativity to brighten their days. Our art for orphanages project aims to give children a positive outlet for stress. The children are led by one of our partnering organisations, European Disaster Volunteer’s Haitian staff members who is also a trained artist. REBUILD hosted the art exposition in our store. The children's arts and crafts were up for sale, with all proceeds benefiting the orphanage. It was a great event, showcasing the SMDT orphanage's impact on these children's lives. There is still plenty to do for these kids, so stay tuned for more opportunities to help!

We encourage you to follow our facebook to stay up to date on all RG happenings and watch our videos on youtube

Sincerely, 

The REBUILD Team

RG Employment directly affects Orphans of Poverty

By supporting REBUILD Globally, you have truly become part of our family. It is with friends, family and people like you that help make a difference in people’s lives every day.

Le Main Tendre orphanage currently has 36 children from the age of under 1 year to 16 years old, with a majority of them being under the age of 4.  There are several pairs of siblings within the group even 2 sets of twins!  Even though these children are living in an orphanage, the majority of them have living parents. However, their parents feel that they are not in a position (mostly financially) to look after them. We have found that on average nearly 70% of children in Haiti are orphans of poverty and not parentless orphans.  And sadly, without employment, parents have no means to even feed their children so they make the agonizing decision to put them in homes.  Le Main Tendre encourages contact between the children and their birth-families, and often parents will visit as much as possible and on special occasions such as birthdays etc.

Le Main Trendre has been an orphanage since long before the earthquake in January 2010.  A number of NGO's have worked in partnership to improve the infrastructure at the orphanage: a medium-term structure has been erected where the temple first stood and the living quarters have been improved dramatically. REBUILD Globally has been able to help this by providing a pair of sandals specifically made to fit for each child in the orphanage. This contributes towards reducing the risk of the children being infected by intestinal worms, which can cause major health problems.  

Additionally, we have been able to host the children at the Caribbean Lodge for a swim day party.  The children and the orphanage are now a part of our growing family.  Thank you for helping us help the children of Haiti.

In solitude,

Julie

Recycled Tire Sandals for the children of Kay Angel Orphanage!

Kay Angel Orphanage
Kay Angel Orphanage

In the past 3 months, your support and love has provided 77 orphan and street children with recycled tire sandals!  It is hard to explain the look on a child’s face when they receive a sandal that they know was made in Haiti from tires collected off their streets.  The kids are literally in awe at the thought of recycling and using something old to make something new and beautiful.  It has been a privilege to watch this reaction. 

In this GlobalGiving report, we would like to highlight an organization who has gone above and beyond just providing sandals to kids in need.  The {Heart} Change Project is an organization that is interested in changing hearts, living a life of purpose and understanding that one small act of kindness can change someone’s entire life and future.  They held a fundraiser on behalf of the children of Kay Angel Orphanage in Jacmel, a home that cares for young children with HIV/AIDS and other disabilities. ‚Ä®With the money raised, the The {Heart} Change Project was able to support economic development and sustainable change in Haiti by purchasing new sandals from Rebuild Globally for the children.  This allowed both projects, Kay Angel and Rebuild Globally to do what they do best in Haiti and work towards a health and sustainable Haiti. 

Thank you to The Heart Change Project, Kay Angel Orphanage and all the individuals who have supported this project and REBUILD Globally.  Together we are able to make lasting impacts in the lives of Haitian earthquake survivors and children in need.

 In solidarity,

Julie
