People Doing Good

October 17, 2010

At the end of each day in Haiti, I was exhausted. But I wanted to keep everyone updated, so I made sure to spend a few minutes each day here on this blog.

Now that I am home, I will be sharing more stories from Haiti and specific ways you can help.

Tonight, though, I wanted to highlight just a few of the people who are making lives better there everyday.

PASTOR MOISE NARCISSE
EGLISE INTERNATIONALE DU CHRIST D’HAITI /
INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN RESCUE MINISTRIES, INC.

My amazing chauffer runs two orphanages in the mountains. One in Kenscoff that I was able to visit and another in Mon-Repos. One of the things that is needed to rebuild Haiti is education. But education is private in Haiti. If a child does not have the money for tuition and a uniform, they cannot attend. Not only is Pastor Moise providing a home to 25 orphans, he runs a school that children in the community can attend for free. He has a huge heart.
HOW TO HELP
BIG WAY: Go to Haiti. Stay at their guest house. Help rebuild the school.
JUST AS GOOD: Donate to their cause. Right now, they need school supplies badly. I will have more information this week on how to donate them.
SUPER AMAZING WAY: Adopt this orphanage. If you have a nonprofit or a church group or even just a few friends who care,each person could sponsor a child. $30/month can provide education, a uniform and food for a child.

NEW LIFE CHILDREN’S HOME
This is the orphanage where I spent most of my time. They are an amazing example of what all orphanages in Haiti should be like. Children kept safe and educated. Doors open to children and adults with special needs. Most of all, a generous heart – sharing food and supplies with other orphanages in need.
WAYS TO HELP
BIG WAY: Go there. Stay in the guest house. There is always work to be done.
JUST AS GOOD: Provide a monthly donation. This gives them an operating budget and they can purchase the supplies they need and items that can help other people in the area.

VOLNER ALEXANDRE
CHRIST FREEDOM FOR HAITI
On the day of the earthquake, Volner’s niece realized she hadn’t seen her cousin in awhile. She went upstairs and found him, picked him up and began to carry him down their outdoor stairs. As they moved down the stairs, the house collapsed behind him. Volner says, “God saved my son. Now I will save God’s children.” He runs a ministry in Pouille. It is literally over the river and through the woods. After driving up in the mountains, you cross a river in a small boat. Building materials and supplies are then handwalked through paths in the woods. Out of those woods, people in need appear for help.
WAYS TO HELP
BIG WAY: Can’t you guess? This is a tough one to visit, but so worth it.
JUST AS GOOD: Funds can be send to their partner group in Illinois.
