Fix the Fort Campaign

Financial Goal - $83,000 USD
Funding Progress 43%

GLA’s mission is to provide exceptional neonatal care and a safe haven to the smallest, sickest, and most vulnerable children of Haiti and their families. What began as a small NICU 25 years ago blossomed into many different outreaches of God’s Littlest Angels. God’s provision through our donors enabled GLA to offer excellent care to every child and family that came through our doors. As GLA grew, facilities changed and we moved into our Fort Jacques property 10 years ago, allowing us to consolidate our locations. Owning land, facilities and equipment is a blessing that equips GLA to minister. However, it also brings additional costs.   This fall, we are launching our FIx the Fort campaign to raise the necessary funds for maintenance, repairs, and relocation of services around our facility.

Relocation Of Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit:

GLA exists to provide exceptional medical care to each infant. Our goal is to relocate our NICU to an improved location to provide easy access for ambulances, while providing a safer environment for premature infants. This environment includes appropriate infection control measures, upgraded equipment, and a dedicated back-up generator for the facility. Most of the infants admitted to the NICU require oxygen, CPAP, IVs, or other specialized medical equipment requiring consistent, stable power. GLA started 25 years ago with one premature infant. We have cared for thousands of infants throughout the years, and are now entering a new chapter in our medical care. Please consider giving a gift that will go toward improvements, relocation, and upgraded equipment to help keep GLA in the fight alongside these infants and strive against the statistical tragedy of infant mortality in Haiti.

Greatest Need Dedicated Ambulance Electricity Overhaul

Scroll Down For More Info

GLA cultivated a reputation for being one of the best NICU’s in Haiti through dedicated, compassionate care over the past 25 years. As one of only 5 NICU’s in the country, we serve families from every region. The need for a neonatal intensive care unit is immense as premature births and neonatal deaths in Haiti are the highest in the Western Hemisphere.

Electricity/Power Overhaul:

In first world countries, local and regional power grids provide consistent, reliable energy nearly 24/7. However, blackouts and power shortages are a common occurrence in the developing world. GLA’s power from the local grid is an unexpected luxury that appears only occasionally and often briefly. Unreliable and inconsistent power does not partner well with housing a creche and NICU, where access to power can determine life or death. This means energy independence is the only option for GLA. Generating power (via diesel generators and solar energy) is only one half of the battle. This power must be distributed effectively, efficiently, and safely across the entire compound covering 4+ acres. As GLA has grown, we’ve recognized the need to overhaul our electrical systems as the need for safe, reliable, and consistent power is a necessity. Please consider helping GLA revamp our electrical system, beginning in our children’s area.

The Needs

We are dedicating the "Fix the Fort" campaign to the Lord!
For we know, "Unless it is the Lord who builds the house, the builders’ work is pointless. Unless it is the Lord who protects the city, the guard on duty is pointless." Psalm 127:1

Vehicle Repair & Replacement:

GLA staff members utilize vehicles on a daily basis to obtain necessary supplies, take children to therapy sessions, and attend administrative appointments. Most of the roads in Haiti are not well maintained and the roads up the mountainside are harrowing. GLA owns several vehicles, but they are beginning to show their age and the wear and tear of daily usage. These vehicles have pressing repair needs in order to continue operating safely and reliably. In addition, GLA would like to purchase an ambulance to safely transport NICU referrals from hospitals in Port-au-Prince to our facility. Often, area hospitals are unable to provide the transport themselves, or they have vehicles which break down during transit. A dedicated GLA ambulance will ensure these little ones will receive life saving care as soon as possible.

The Needs

Kids Cubbies for Their Houses:

Operation of a “creche” or orphanage is one of GLA’s primary ministries,in partnership with IBESR (Haitian Social Services). Our creche currently houses 46 children in one of five children’s homes. Each house is home to 8 to 10 children along with a house nanny who provides supervision and care. One of the biggest challenges in the home is organization. Each child requires their own clothing, shoes, toiletries and personal items. To help the children stay organized and keep their items clean, GLA would like to build and install cubbies in each home. These cubbies would provide each child their own dedicated space for their things. This aids in cleanliness, organization, and offers each child a sense of value, privacy and personal space. Please prayerfully consider your gift to this project and in doing so, bring about positive change for our children.

The Needs

Septic System Overhaul:

Issues with a septic system can create huge problems in a short amount of time. Contaminated waste can seep water into and on top of the ground creating a risk of illness and unsanitary conditions. One of the septic systems at GLA is currently experiencing issues, creating water waste and unsafe conditions near our children’s play area. GLA urgently needs to bring in a septic company to identify and correct the issue in order to continue to provide a safe and healthy area for our children, staff, and volunteers moving forward.

The Needs

Children's Playground Repairs:

Teams and volunteers work hard at GLA but also get the opportunity to take a break and have some fun with the children. We regularly enjoy watching the most serious of adults turn into kids themselves as they play around on the GLA playground. The playground is the favorite place to play for all the children at GLA. It allows them to run, climb, and swing, and just be kids. GLA’s playground was installed in 2014 and has seen many hours of daily play. The playground needs repairs to improve and reinforce the equipment to guarantee the safety of children who play there. Wouldn’t you like to be part of this project? We need a team of volunteers to raise the funding and commit to making the repairs. Please consider joining us in Haiti. We would love to have you!

The Needs

We would ask all GLA Guardians and stakeholders to do three things!

It is YOUR support as a GLA stakeholder, with your prayers, giving, and sharing with others that enables, and expands GLA to provide the highest standard of care possible to His littlest angels.

Please share GLA’s mission with friends and family​
