Home to the worst slum in the entire Western Hemisphere, Cité Soleil, Haiti, is known for its extreme poverty. An estimated 560,000 children in Haiti under the age of 5 suffer from acute malnutrition. Of these thousands of children, many are orphans. Miriam Frederick from New Life Children's Home has taken several hundred dying children over the years to Port Au Prince to save them from malnutrition. Right now, Haiti is in a serious state politically and economically. They are watching their children cry for food that doesn’t exist after this the seventh day of being forced to barricade themselves in their homes for fear of the dangerous manifestations sweeping the country with roadblocks, burning tires, shooting and killings throughout the entire country.
“We have a great vision as we move forward helping the poor, sick, abandoned and/or orphaned children of the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Many have given up on Haiti and have left, but we have and will continue to stay and press on because of the children. We have done the very best we could with what we have had, and now the need demands that we step out and do more.”
Please consider giving today to make an immediate impact in the lives of these Haitian children, and help us to further the Kingdom of God.
