Meet the Maissade sisters, Fedeline and Edeline!
In 2013, Coreluv began to provide resources for a Saturday morning Bible club and feeding program in partnership with a local church in Maissade, Haiti. 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.
Two of the children entrusted to Coreluv that day were sisters, Edeline and Fedeline. Their father died when they were both very young, and their mother abandoned them shortly after. Edeline and Fedeline were staying with their aunt and attending the Saturday Bible club and feeding program to receive what was often their only meal of the day. Their aunt did her best to provide for even their most basic needs but was unable to because she already had children of her own. Edeline, the younger sister, was very malnourished and sick with an infection. Fedeline was also very malnourished and trying to help look after her little sister. Because of this sad reality, we knew they needed a home where they could receive proper love and care. We praise God that they are calling the Coreluv Children’s Village | Maissade HOME!
Today, both girls are receiving all of their basic needs and are very healthy! Fedeline is eight years old, and Edeline is six years old. Fedeline is more reserved at first but loves to play soccer! Edeline is very outgoing and loves singing and dancing! We consider ourselves blessed that God has entrusted them into our care. It is with great joy that we have been able, with your help, to complete the construction of a house for the girls and our other children of Maissade, Haiti. With your help this May, you can help us make this house their forever home.
How can you help us welcome Edeline and Fedeline HOME?! Donations throughout the entire month of May will be MATCHED dollar for dollar! Help us welcome our 40 children of Maissade into their loving, Christ-centered home! We look forward to furnishing each room so that our children can live comfortably as they experience a FULL childhood! Want to learn more about May Match? Visit coreluv.org/maymatch
