THE STORY:

Elaine Goldhammer wrote -

Help 86 children live better this year and for years to come with just one small donation.  Ella and her mother Dr. Elaine Goldhammer have recently visited Haiti and the Village of Hope and just now learned that the orphanage's  well that has run dry.  Ella and Elaine want to help rebuild it and figured that many friends and neighbors would want to do the same.  The Village is desperate for water.  They have had 2 wells and both have dried due to a 3 year drought in Haiti.  

The adorable photo posted is of  Sampson Jules.  He is one of the many precious children that are loved and cared for at the Village of Hope.  He is the youngest of 5 siblings.  His mother was destitute in Port au Prince Haiti and she was unable to feed all 6 children. Sampson Jules however was saved from existing in extreme hunger. This story has a happy ending. The mother was able to put Sampson in the Village of Hope. The village is an orphanage on a hill in Haiti that has taken in 86 children like Sampson and feeds them, clothes them, educates them and loves them. 86 children have hope again. The village has been a success story for Haiti but it now needs our help.  Don't hold back, just help all 86 children have water again.
