Thriving - Thanks to You!

The New Baby
The New Baby

Since Christmas, the kids at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage have been going from strength to strength. In a country where so many children face an uncertain future, you have given these kids a safe place to live with the love and support of motivated staff who have the resources to meet their needs.

We’re excited to welcome a new child to the orphanage – a premature baby who was abandoned in the local community. Before the staff of the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage gained your support, they were forced to turn children away who were sick and needed care. But today thanks to your generosity, they’ve been able to give another Haitian child a safe home.

Because of you, these kids are thriving, growing, and learning. We hope you’ll continue sharing this page with friends and family and making donations as often as you can.

One last time thank you so much for your generous donations. Take care, and our warmest regards from Haiti.
