Thanks for keeping Ruth from going hungry

On behalf of Ruth. "Thank you!"

Thanks so much for helping to provide nutritious food for Ruth*.

Although this microproject wasn’t fully funded, your donations have still made a vital impact.

Ruth and her sister have lived at the HTDC Orphanage since 2017. Their mum died giving birth to their younger sibling, who sadly didn’t make it either. Despite this tragedy Ruth stays positive and is close with her sister. 

The HTDC Orphanage does its very best for Ruth and the other children in its care, but the situation in Haiti is even tougher right now than usual. Years of political unrest and the assasination of the President have created chaos and rising prices, and the impacts of Covid-19 on the global economy mean that donations are drying up.

Your donations have helped provide Ruth three nutritious meals a day for a while longer, and we’ll keep fundraising here on GlobalGiving

We’ll keep updating you about Ruth and all her friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage through this project’s parent page,Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email We’d love to hear from you! 

*Donations to this project help cover Ruth’s share of the food costs, but are spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
