New home for orphans in Haiti

ST LOUIS, USA — Sixty children orphaned by the January 2010 earthquake in central Haiti will soon be moving into a new home near Cap Haitien, in the northern part of Haiti.

As a result of a special appeal to help those affected by the earthquake, the Reliv Kalogris Foundation provided funds to build the children’s home and also will provide free nutritional supplements to the residents. The home is built in the Petite-Anse neighborhood near Cap Haitien.

The children’s home is a stand-alone structure that has two dormitory-style wings on an upper floor over the fully furnished kitchen and two dining halls that can also serve as study rooms and recreation areas. The goal is to give these children a home-like atmosphere, provide education and job training for the older children, and supply our nutritional supplement on a daily basis.
