In a small community in central Haiti where residents live on as little as $1 a day, a dream was born. A dream to share the word of God with impoverished children living in the village of Maissade, through a Saturday morning bible club and feeding program, was shared with us by one of our Haitian staff members who carried within him a deep burden for his hometown. 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 if it were not for this program, 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 faithful partners, we were able to secure a small 3 bedroom home which would temporarily meet their most basic needs.
Although this home serves a better purpose, 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 of 2015, Coreluv was able to purchase 7 acres in Maissade, allowing our dream to build these orphans a loving home to take flight. Can you see it?!
...A safe place where they can play and grow?! ...A family they can call their own?! Dream with us!
This is Coreluv's heart behind the Maissade Orphanage Project! Will you help make this dream a reality by partnering with us today?
The Maissade Orphanage Project is comprised of several structures.
• 8 Homes: each home will house between 6-8 children. With this model, we can provide a loving home for up to 64 children.
• Family Center: this multipurpose, covered facility will provide a church, school, kitchen, food pantry, outdoor patio / hangout space and a basketball court which will serve as a cafeteria and location for extra-curricular activities and meetings
• 2 Restroom Facilities: one boy’s and one girl’s facility.
• Utilities Complex: will include a pharmacy, nurses’ station, wash room, office, storage room, and a tool shed/garage.
• Clean Water Station: water well, water treatment and water storage facility.
*This building project will employ over 50 local Haitian workers. Upon completion, long-term employment will be provided to over 30 Haitians, some of whom are widows, who will help establish a loving home.
