Donate Items

We need a large variety of items throughout the year to keep the nurseries, NICU and school running effectively and efficiently. Some of these items are difficult to purchase in Haiti.

 

If you will be visiting GLA and you or your church, school, or community would like to help us by bringing donations please reference the following list for up-to-date needs.

 

You can also contact us about more specific donations at gla@glahaiti.org. 

No Longer Sending Shipping Containers to Haiti

We are no longer accepting donations at our U.S. office in Colorado Springs. In the past, we have filled and sent a shipping container from our warehouse there approximately once a year. With changes in government regulations and tax it is no longer cost-effective for us to continue this supply channel unless there are specific pieces of equipment needed for our facility in Haiti that are heavy or cumbersome and can only be brought in via shipping containers from overseas.

Adoptive Parents

If you are an adoptive parent coming to Haiti, we ask you to help us keep adoption costs down by donating one suitcase full of child care items for the nursery. Baby lotion, shampoo, bar soap, powder, diapers and wipes are some items that we use daily. See the list above of Items Currently Needed for more suggestions.

You should also bring infant formula, diapers, lotion, shampoo, powder, diaper rash cream, clothing, bottles or cups, shoes, etc. for your child to use when you come to take your child home. Once your child is with you, GLA no longer provides these daily items.
