    Modeling the Emotion of Joy

    We all appreciate moments of heartfelt joy, a good belly laugh, invigorating teamwork, or soul sharing with a close friend. For children who have grown up in an environment of fear, the emotion of joy can be foreign and difficult.

    Small flock in Barra Vieja

    In Pain - Looking for Help

    Five-year-old Betchinie Blanchard was in pain. Family members brought her to Hospital Lumiere seeking help. As it turned out, Betchinie's abdominal pain and other symptoms were the result of malnourishment, a tragedy all too common in Haiti. During her month of treatment at Hospital Lumiere, Betchinie received medication, milk and food. She was very eager to eat, even when the food was too hot and she would continue eating after her little belly was full. Betchinie responded well to the care she received and is now thriving again.

Here in America we just turn the faucet in our homes and out pours clean water! But most Haitians rely on community wells for their water and the well may be far away so it is tempting for them to take their water from a contaminated source such as a stream..

    Providing hope & opportunity

    Haiti Trade Schools. Most of us have had educational opportunities from childhood to young adulthood, first in elementary education programs and then in secondary education, either in college programs, or skilled trades that enable us to make a living. Imagine a country where no national education system exists, less than half of the children receive any education, most of the people are illiterate and poverty is widespread.
