Since 1994, Mercy & Sharing has changed and saved lives for Haiti's most defenseless children. Children in Haiti are abandoned at an alarming rate and have no where to turn. Mercy & Sharing Village is a campus located northwest of Port-au-Prince. Here,126 orphans (nearly half of whom are disabled) have a warm and loving home. Mercy & Sharing provides shelter, food, 24/7 care, education, healthcare, therapy, mentoring and vocational training to these kids. No other orgs take in disabled kids.
Mercy & Sharing's model for orphan care is efficient and sustainable. For only $6000 per year per child, we provide EVERYTHING needed for an orphan to thrive. With over 100 Haitian nationals employed at Mercy & Sharing Village, children are nurtured with love and compassion. Three orphanage buildings house these children. In addition to providing for their essential needs, robust educational and recreational programs are in place to enable these kids to grow and learn and smile!
Where unemployment is over 66% and 54% of the population lives in abject poverty, the only way to break the cycle of despair in Haiti is to educate children to provide for themselves when they become adults. Through Mercy & Sharing's Learning Academy and Technical and Trade School has 98 students, the orphans at Mercy & Sharing Village have opportunities to succeed in life and become independent. The deep effect of this transformation breaks the cycle of despair for these children.
