Please take the time to read what our partners at Mercy & Sharing are doing to help Haiti.
We are thrilled to be feeding hundreds of children at the Cazeau project, the John Branchizio School and Cite de Soliel. Some of the children’s photos are attached.
Without your help and support all of these children would be going without food. The response has been tremendous, and we thank you for your donations and supplies that have been critical at this urgent time of need.
Since we lost the medical clinic at Delmas 75 in Port au Prince, we have opened our medical clinic at Williamson to the surrounding neighborhood. We are averaging 75 patents per day, over 90% of whom are children. We also welcome a new doctor to our staff – Dr. Charlestin – who has been busy at work at the Williamson clinic. Through the generous donation of Christian Alliance we have a second mobile medical clinic coming in two weeks that we will stage at Cazeau or Delmas 75 to continue our outreach of medical assistance.
The eleven new orphans that arrived last week have taken to Dr. Rodriguez, who lost 6 members of her family in the earthquake. They are like chicks following the mother hen. The new orphans are adapting well and the staff have been loving and comforting them as they adjust to their new home.

Thank you for your continued support. We are working to rebuild our damages facilities in Cite de Soliel, Cazeau and Delmas 75 and will be accepting donations of building supplies soon.
Pray for the children and the people of Haiti as the rainy season advances. Hundreds of thousands remain without adequate shelter, and the rain will cause more agonizing conditions, and will spread many diseases as the rains wash through the rubble much of which still contains human remains.
Please continue to support Mercy & Sharing and the children of Haiti. www.haitichildren.org

After careful consideration into how our money can best be used, Forever Giving has partnered with the Mercy and Sharing Foundation. Founded in 1994, Mercy and Sharing’s goal is to help alleviate the suffering of children in Haiti by developing educational programs to combat illiteracy, medical facilities to heal the sick, and social programs designed to create hope. The Mercy & Sharing Foundation provides support for an orphanage, abandoned baby unit, clinic/hospital, and schools for many children.
Many have lost their parents and many will die without the help from people like us. Events such as this earthquake are so tragic, however it is circumstances like this that bring the world closer together. The time is now to reach deep into our pockets and make a donation today to Forever Giving. It doesn’t really matter what you give, be it $10 or $10,000…It only matters that you be that change that you want to see in the world.

It is hard to watch the devastating images that we are seeing from Haiti after the recent earthquake. With tens of thousands of people killed, the destruction is unparalleled. Couple this recent disaster with the already dire economic state in Haiti and the need for outside help is greater than ever. We can stand by and hope that someone else will help or we can group together and Make a Forever Difference. I am asking each of you to make a donation to Forever Giving. Whether it is $10 or $1000 is not important. What is important is that we get involved. This is the first big challenge that has hit since the inception of Forever Giving and this is our chance to show the world that we are committed to “Making a Difference.” Rex and Ruth have personally made a generous contribution to help with the relief effort. Also we are mobilizing our operations in the Dominican Republic to get needed items to Haiti as the airport at Port-au-Prince is extremely congested.
We hope that you will join with us and together we will be able to give hope where all hope has been lost. GIVE NOW!
