Each of these children are counting on your help so that their daily needs are met! We have generous donors who help monthly by sponsoring a child and their sponsorship helps provide for some of the food, clothing, schooling, medical care, and pay the bills needed to keep the children housed.
But sponsorship does not cover all of the expenses. Adoptions used to help with the support of the children but now it is taking a year or more for the children to be proposed to their forever family and the adoption is taking at least 18 to 24 months after that! So this means that we must find ways of supporting the children during the time they are waiting for their adoptive family.
We also have children like these little brothers on the left who came to us when they were traveling with their mother on a large bus going to the southern part of Haiti and were in a huge accident with many fatalities. Their mother was killed but the brothers survived. Social Services has not been able to locate any of their family, so they asked us if we could take them until family can be found or until they will be declared abandoned. We have at least 20 children who are living at GLA who cannot be adopted. They are at the orphanage for assistance only. We need funds to provide the care they need. There is no help from Haitian Social Services.
Would you please consider giving a one time gift, right now? Our funds are dangerously low and the children need food and supplies today! I'm not one to panic but we do not have enough funds to buy diapers and baby formula!
You could also sponsors a child for $30 per month to help see that their needs are met. To sponsor a child monthly click here.
To help us buy food and supplies today, please donate using the orange donate button. No amount is too small. The children need your help!
