This project will provide a year of safe housing for fifteen year old Manoucheca. Manoucheca arrived at the HTDC orphanage in 2010 after her father died in the earthquake. Her mom couldn't afford to care for her, or her younger brother Nekfy, so she brought them to the orphanage. Despite her hardship, Manoucheca is a lovely, independent girl who takes very good care of her little brother. But without the orphanage to keep her safe, Manoucheca would be forced to fend for herself as a street-kid.
As an orphan, Manoucheca is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There isn't an effective nationwide child protection service operating in Haiti to provide for her basic needs. This means that, without your help, Manoucheca would be a homeless street-kid, leaving her vulnerable to exploitation and destined to a life of suffering and poverty.
By donating today, you'll help us provide the home Manoucheca needs to stay safe and to grow up with a fighting chance. You'll also help us provide caregivers to look after Manoucheca and also ensure that she has access to water and electricity.
A safe home and care are essential for every child. By providing these for Manoucheca, you're giving her the foundations she needs to build a bright future.
