In a small community in central Haiti where residents live on as little as $1 a day, a dream was born. One of our Haitian staff carried a deep burden for his hometown. He had a dream to share the word of God with impoverished children living in the village by having a Saturday morning bible club and feeding program.
In 2013, Coreluv began to provide resources for this program in partnership with a local church. As the program grew, so did Coreluv’s involvement in Maissade. On one of our visits, we discovered something that changed our lives forever: 40 orphaned children at the bible club who were desperate for food! These babies were without shelter, without proper care, and without HOPE! Our hearts were pierced with the Father’s love and we knew we had to defend these precious orphans.
In 2014, we launched a social media campaign to raise funds for these children. Through our faithful Orphan Care Partners, we were able to secure a small 3 bedroom home which would temporarily meet their most basic needs. Although this home provides shelter, it is still too small for their long-term care, especially with the growing need for orphan care in this community. With a need as great as this, God never ceases to amaze us!
In January 2015, Coreluv was able to purchase 7 acres in Maissade, allowing our dream to build these orphans a loving home to take flight. In May of 2016, God provided the necessary funds to build the Coreluv Children’s Village - Maissade. These 40 children and more will now have a home to play and grow. Dream with us and consider partnering to help provide the six basic needs for our children in Maissade, Haiti.
