Faith Boys Home is being repainted and the garden is being expanded and new chicken co-ops are being built in December. Fif-teen girls from the ages of 3-15 will move into their new home by the end of December. Many of the girls come from severely at-risk sit-uations. Thanks to your dona-tions 40 boys and girls have new clothing, shoes, and eat 3 meals a day.
A third children’s home will be built in the rural area of Poto beginning in December. Fifteen – twenty children will be moved in as soon as it is finished.
Jubilee, Microloans and Medical Teams
Our medical teams have been focusing on the area called Jubilee, where the poverty is almost indescribable. There is no sanitation, no place to grow food, 75% of the children under puberty had no cloth-ing, only about 20% of the children go to school and serious disease is rampant. The Lutheran Church of Haiti with Mis-sion: Haiti were the first mission team to ever enter this Voodoo stronghold. There are now over 100 new Christians in the area, a modest struc-ture used for a church and clinic. Mission: Haiti has provided funds for more than 20 microloans to help individuals and families support themselves. Micro-loans of $50 – $100 are given for business as diverse as repackag-ing rice for resale, purchasing and boil-ing eggs for sale and mattress repair and refurbishing. We are especially grateful to our mission teams and the many churches and LWML groups who made pillowslip dresses, do-nated gym shorts, shoes, underwear, baby clothes and food for these who feel abandoned and hope-less. The love and care of Jesus shines through the gifts and service that has been provided by your generosity!
