Vehicle to Transport Disabled Kids in Haiti

by Mercy & Sharing Project of the Month Site Visit Verified


Mercy & Sharing is one of the only organizations in Haiti that takes in disabled kids. We have been working in Haiti since 1994 to help abandoned, orphaned and disabled children have what they need to survive and thrive. By providing money for us to purchase a vehicle, you are helping 136 orphans have transportation for medical care. 70 of these children are disabled and need surgeries and special treatment. Each donation "builds" the car -- one part at a time!

While media attention from the 2010 earthquake in Haiti has faded, children continue to suffer in destitute situations. Many children are abandoned because their birth parents cannot provide for them. For disabled children, the situation is even worse because they are shunned by the culture and cast out to fend for themselves. Mercy & Sharing takes in the kids no one else wants and provides proper medical care. This project enables us to transport kids to receive surgeries and treatment.


By providing transportation for 136 orphans, they will be healthier and able to live a happier life. Our staff doctor provides vaccinations and routine medical care. Yet, many of the children in our care need surgery and special treatments. Facilities in Haiti are limited, so we often need to transport children to the Dominican Republic for specialized medical care. This is why this vehicle is so vital to caring for these precious children.

Long-Term Impact

Over the long term, 136 orphans will be healthier and happier because they have proper medical care. Disabled children will be better able to participate in physical therapy after corrective surgeries.
