Earthquake Relief

 
On August 14, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti in the Tiburon Peninsula, about 93 miles away from Port Au Prince.  It caused significant damage to hundreds of thousands of structures, caused thousands of deaths, and an estimated nearly 13,000 injuries. 
Believe in Haiti's founder and a board member hopped on the first available plane to go down and assist with medical needs.  There they met with other Believe in Haiti staff and volunteers, and joined emergency response teams.  We were also able to collaborate with another foundation in the Dominican Republic to purchase hundreds of tarps.  These tarps will help families in many villages in the affected earthquake areas.  
 Haiti is a country without resources amply available like other places, so we, and THEY, were incredibly grateful for the incredible financial support.  In a matter of days, you donated thousands of dollars to aid with earthquake recovery.  

Hope Center Revealed!

The Hope Center has continued progressing.  It now has many colorful cabinets, a bedroom, place for English and Sewing classes, and storage.  If you haven't seen the beautiful murals on the exterior, you must check it out!  In fact, the whole thing is quite incredible.  Check out this video for a virtual tour of the new Hope Center.
Meet James
James (left) is in his early 20's.  He is the youngest of 5 children and worked hard in both the English program and the school sponsorship program.  He just completed high school and took his exams (very exciting!)  His father passed away when he was little.  He lives with his mom, who sells things for a living.  James enjoys soccer and listening to music.  He hopes to go to Port Au Prince for college.
Sponsor a Child!
There are many students in need of sponsors.  A sponsorship for someone like Yvena (pictured) provides tuition for primary school, and it also provides meals for the children who attend school, school supplies, and the cost of uniforms

We have seen these sponsorships become life-changing.  We have loved seeing many students attend school, who couldn't otherwise.  Many have even gone to college for nursing, dental, computers, or other degrees which required hard work...and a sponsor!
