Did you know that there are an estimated 153 million orphans
around the world? In Haiti alone, there are 1 million orphans but less
than 32,000 living in orphanages. Foundation Haiti Project was founded in September of 2009 with less than 35 orphans. Just a few month safter the foundation was started Haiti was hit with a catastrophic earthquake. The earthquake was registered as a 7.0 on the moment magnitude scale, with at least 52 aftershocks that affected almost 3 million people. After the earthquake, the foundation was flooded with people that needed help and now, 8 years later, we have over 700 orphans in just 4 orphanages, most of which lost their parents during this tragedy.
God was using Foundation Haiti Project as a vessel for these
children. We had no idea how many children we would be able to help
but God did. “Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is
dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy,
useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.” We are
asking God to use us, and we are praying that he will use you as well.
Our goal at Foundation Haiti Project is to provide for the physical,
spiritual, and educational needs of the Haitian people but specifically
the children in Haiti. We believe that everyone has an opportunity to
help these children even in a small way. We are involved in some
special events and fundraising in Haiti, in the hometowns of our
members, and now we hope to be involved in communities around the
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We are starting a lemonade stand fundraiser in July as a way to
teach our children and the children in our communities about the
Haitian orphans and give them an opportunity to raise money in a fun
way for the foundation. Foundation Haiti Project will provide a
Lemonade stand sign and we are asking that every stand donates a
minimum of 50% of their proceeds.
This fundraising model can be replicated in any area, so if you are interested in having your own please email or call:
