On behalf of Christelle, "Thank You" so much!

Thanks so much for helping to provide a year of food for Christelle.

Like many of the children at the HTDC orphanage, Christelle was underweight when she arrived. Food prices are high in Port-au-Prince, and after Christelle’s mom left her dad simply couldn’t afford to feed her anymore. Although it made him very sad Christelle’s dad left her in the care of the orphanage.

Christelle’s dad hoped the orphanage could feed her, but with so many other hungry mouths to feed, the orphanage also struggled from day to day. Without healthy food, Christelle was listless. She didn’t play or run around.

But now - thanks to you - the orphanage staff can barely keep up with her! Because of you, Christelle now enjoys three nutritious meals every day - and we’ll be able to keep providing the food she needs to stay healthy and keep on growing.

Christelle has a bright future because you gave. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Christelle. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Christelle and all her friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage right here on GlobalGiving. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email We’d love to hear from you!  

Thanks again for making Christelle’s future bright, and our warmest regards!
