Building Futures in Haiti

Today, thousands of children in Haiti are desperate to know freedom. Their parents and caregivers–often out of options and hope–fall prey to the belief that their children will find a better future in the care of someone else. Instead, these children are being exploited and sold into restavek situations (also known as modern day child slavery), where there is no hope.   But there is HOPE.   Building a home for children orphaned or at risk, as well as providing a quality high school education will help children break free from the grip of poverty. Give Today! RIKENCIA’S STORY Meet Rikencia. Abandoned by her father at a young age, she grew up with her mother and two younger sisters. With unemployment rates sky high, her mother was unable to find a full-time job and food was scarce… so scarce Rikencia and her sisters were forced to search for food and do whatever they … Continue reading

A Powerful Story of 2 Children: OpenArms Haiti

Come with us to Haiti. Haiti is considered the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country. More than 90,000 children lack education, medical care, and nutrition. Worse still, many children have been orphaned. Meet Olgens and Easlan. “We live here,” says Olgens. “This is Haiti. We will show you.” Observe the unspoiled landscapes and the busy market where locals barter in tiny stalls for daily needs, transporting brightly woven baskets on their heads. Visit the school in Tityanen where at least 40 students squeeze into a classroom lacking books or technology. “We had a big earthquake. There were more people before the earthquake.” —Easlan Olgens and Easlan live in Bercy. They occupy a tiny tent and fill their stomachs with mud cookies to stave off the hunger pains. Bercy’s only hospital was closed after the last earthquake. It now stands as a shell of what once existed. Olgens and Easlan represent God’s goodness. The children of Haiti are resilient–even amid the devastation. … Continue reading

Important Update from Lifesong Haiti

Thank you for praying for Haiti! God never promised life would be easy, but He did promise He would walk with us every step of the way (Isaiah 43). On behalf of Lifesong Haiti, we want to thank you for praying for the work in Bercy, especially during the recent hardship created by Hurricane Matthew. On Monday night, October 3, we put out a request for you to pray for Haiti. Hundreds–perhaps even thousands–of you did, and we are grateful. As reports rolled in of Hurricane Matthew’s widespread destruction–vast flooding and unimaginable loss–we waited to hear about the children and families we are honored to serve. And then word came from the team overseas– We are overjoyed to share with you that there were no lives threatened in our community and no damage, just minimal clean-up. Thank you for your earnest prayers; it is clear God spared us from what could have been much … Continue reading
