Feeding Program at Danita's Children
Over 18,000 meals are served each month through our orphanage, school and feeding program. The orphans in our care eat three meals each day, seven days a week. When Danita began the school, she saw that many of the children from the village had difficulty learning for lack of nourishment, so she began to feed them a meal each day. For many school children, this may be the only meal they eat all day.
As Danita began to care for orphans, she also began to educate them. In Haiti, it is required that the family purchase a uniform for a child to be allowed to attend school. This excluded many children from an education. In response to the need, Danita began a school. The students are provided a uniform, books, and tuition in exchange for the child attending class, studying, doing homework and keeping the uniform clean.
Orphans in our Family
"There's always room for one more" is a saying we live by at Danita's Children. We realize we cannot take in every orphan, but our hearts are always open to save another life. If we can make the difference in just one more life of a child in Haiti, we are the ones who are most blessed. Take a look at these before-and-after photos and you'll see what we mean.
The need for medical care for the children in Haiti is tremendous. The facilities to meet this need is a three-stage process. Phase 1-We already built a dental clinic which also serves as our medical care facility for now. 2-The medical clinic in under construction as you can see from the photos below! Phase 3-The Children's Hospital will be built as the final stage. Thank you for your help to complete these massive projects!
Our Church for the Community
Beginning with just a small gathering outside, the church grew out of a need to minister to the families of the children attending our school. After buying the current property for our campus, the church was the first structure built. Currently the building is housing children who were victims of the 2010 earthquake, emphasizing the need for building more orphan homes.
