I am planning my third trip to Haiti in September and am really excited! You may already know that my last 2 trips took place during the Cholera epidemic in Haiti and most of our time was spent in the clinics doing our best to treat and care for critically ill people. This trip we are planning a much more upbeat visit in that we will be focusing on several orphanages that are run by folks we know who are honest and have the children's best interest at heart. Unfortunately there are many many children in Haiti who have either lost one or both parents or have families that cannot care for them. We will be spending time in these orphanages enjoying our time with the kids, doing some general medical check ups and trying to fill needs they may have...of course it IS Haiti so we are keeping things flexible to help with needs that may arise.
Our main focus is an orphanage that our friend Joel Eugene started in 2007 after a flood called The Rescue of God for the Children of Haiti . This particular orphanage has no sponsorship and currently there are 12 boys and 5 girls. Joel and these children are especially in need of help as they have no organized outside support.

We also plan to visit 3 other orphanages:Tytoo Gardens (operated by a Canadian couple & all kids are sponsored) , Jesus' Name Orphanage (kids are sponsored) , and Good Neighbor Orphanage (kids are partially sponsored) .

We also hope to work in a burn clinic a few mornings. Dolls have been donated for the kids there. Most patients are children as they are easily burned from all meals being prepared over a fire on the ground, and the kids are often not watched closely causing some pretty bad burns.
We are all paying our own way but would love to have folks donate either items or money to help support these kids. Just as important as these items are your thoughts and prayers while we are there!
Please feel free to message me if you have questions or would like a list of items needed. All donations need to be received by September 8, 2013
