Providing gospel-centered resources to mobilize the church for global orphan care.


Associated Press:

The smallest survivors of Haiti’s catastrophic earthquake are growing into one of the biggest problems in its aftermath.

Many of the countless thousands of children scattered among Port-au-Prince’s makeshift camps of homeless have nobody to care for them, aid workers say, leaving them without protection against disease, child predators and other risks.

“They are extremely vulnerable,” said Kate Conradt, a spokeswoman for the aid group Save the Children.

She said U.N. experts estimate there may be 1 million youngsters who lost at least one parent in the Jan. 12 quake or are separated from their families.

Read the entirety of this sobering article. May the gospel continue to mobilize the church for long-term engagement in Haiti. God is providing U.S. churches with the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Haitian believers for the sake of Haiti’s orphaned and vulnerable children.

Plans for our Church-Centered Haitian Orphan Care Initiative are coming together. We hope to have a couple of updates soon. Please continue to pray, give, advocate, and prepare.
