Helping Haiti's Orphans

Following the Biblical mandate stated in James 1:27, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.", the purpose of Helping Haiti’s Orphans is to provide for the spiritual, educational, emotional, and physical needs of orphans in Haiti, enabling them to become productive, caring and accountable Christian adults.
