ASHOG - Providing for orphans of Gonâve Island, Haiti - 2016
Organized by: Joe Johnson
ASHOG is a Christian non-profit organization devoted to helping the orphaned and the disabled of Gonâve Island, Haiti. Formed in 1996 to help the needy after several disastrous events happened on La Gonâve: the shipwreck Okelele motorboat, Fyete Gonavyen boat; Kris Vivan sailboat; and several other accidents. Many children lost their fathers and mothers and were living in the streets.
The earthquake of 2010 left many more orphans and many, any, handicapped and crippled people who have now made their way to La Gonâve. This association was founded to help the handicapped people and the orphans who are living in the society without family or friends to support them.
We believe that everyone, all organizations, and all institutions that are working towards and wishing for a new rebuilt La Gonâve should give special thought to the disabled and orphans. Let us join together to save the children because they are the wealth and the future of our country.
We are a Haitian managed and operated group. One hundred percent of the monies given to ASHOG goes to help the people of La Gonâve Island without any overhead being lost to external organizations. This fundraiser is to help support 3 children in our orphanage. Currently, though the need and capacity is greater, we can only accommodate 6 children due to lack of funds. For each $500 we can raise, a child will be provided with housing, food, clothes, school tuition and loving and nurturing surroundings for a full year. By reaching our goal of $1500, we will be at capacity for 2016.
We can also accept donations in the form of Bitcoin at 1JRKxmNVaTdkJYhLBWAkvEEojXJcSwjcHi.
