This Christmas we are raising money to build a permanent, earthquake resistant home for Olrich and 21 children who have been orphaned in Gressier, Haiti through Hope For Life Children's Home. The children currently live in a temporary structure once provided for relief workers after the 2010 earthquake which left 1.5 million displaced. The temporary structure consists simply of plywood walls and studs, dirt floors and temperatures reaching 115 degrees during the day in the summer leaving the children no choice but to remain outside. The total project will cost over $40,000, so we want to begin to make sure these children have a safe, permanent home with proper bathroom and shower facilities.
This Christmas consider "mailing" your family's and friends' Christmas gifts to Haiti by giving! You can even download a postcard to share with your friends/family to let them know where the "gift" is going. Haiti Post Card Pdf
