This project will provide a year of nutritious food for six year old Schnaidine. Schnaidine's mom abandoned her shortly after birth, and she lived with her grandmother. But her grandmother had ten other kids to look after, and she left Schnaidine and her older sister Chanini at the HTDC orphanage. Schnaidine has a big personality and she can really hold her own - even with the boys! But without nutritious meals to keep her growing, Schnaidine's future will be bleak.
As an orphan, Schnaidine 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, Schnaidine may have to go without nutritious meals, leaving her more vulnerable to illness and less healthy.
By donating today, you'll help us provide the food Schnaidine needs to stay healthy. Note that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Donations to this project will cover Schnaidine's share of the food costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
A healthy, balanced diet prevents illness and promotes healthy growth. By providing the nutritious food Schnaidine needs, you're preventing illness and helping her grow up strong!
