THE STORY:

Five Haitian orphans now have a home and family. Let's make it 10. Help us serve five more girls in Haiti.  Manouchka, Famiolita, Gislene, Altani and Jeanette - five Haitian girls - came to us malnourished, without health care or schooling, and living in extreme poverty. They came from the Fonds-Verrettes area, a commune of the Croix-des-Bouquets arrondissement, near the capital of Haiti. They were so excited to be coming to the HAFE House for orphans, and they squealed with delight at their new clothes and shoes. They loved having a bed to sleep in, and a uniform so they can go to school. This was the first Haitian American Foundation for Excellence (HAFE) Home for orphans, which opened in April, 2015. We provide food and water, health care, clothing, adult supervision, education and a safe environment. We hired five employees to care for them including the Director, a tutor, a cook, a security guard, and a laundry aid. Every week, we have people stopping by the home to ask if we have room for more children. You see the Haiti earthquake of 2010 killed more nearly 300,000 people and left 1.5 million homeless. Now, five years later, approximately 80,000 people are still without homes, living in tents and makeshift shelters. The smallest victims are the many orphans. The Haitian American Foundation for Excellence (HAFE) intends to expand the program this year (2016) to double the number of girls we serve. It means moving to a larger house that will house 10 girls initially with room for more orphans as our program builds. We ask for monetary support that will help us expand the program, adding additional staff, more food and water, more furniture and clothing, more health care services, school supplies, uniforms and recreational opportunities. We also need a van for transportation. HAFE raises funds through fundraisers, grant proposals and now crowd-funding. Please help us support the expansion of the HAFE Home in Haiti so that we can accommodate five more girls this year and look forward to further expansion in subsequent years. The Haitian American Foundation for Excellence is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in good standing with the IRS, with a profile on GuideStar. Check out our web site at: http://www.hafeus.org/
