THERE IS HOPE IN HAITI AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT!
WE BELIEVE IN HAITI’S FUTURE.
You may have heard that Haiti faced extreme riots at the beginning of February. In recent years, Haitians have been struggling as the cost of living has increased by as much as 50%! For nine days straight, the country escalated into widespread violence with a call for the President to step down. While those riots have currently subsided, nothing has been resolved. Sadly, the most vulnerable are still hurting from the corruption and extreme poverty they face. Can you imagine what they must be feeling?
“Fear was everywhere. We rely on the help of your prayers and hope that everything will be better in the coming days.” – Abdias, LSM Haitian Staff
Far too often, when answers from the government don’t come, Haiti explodes into violence. As people’s frustration and pain grows, people turn to rioting in the streets. Unfortunately, this only serves to further destabilize Haiti and continue the downward spiral.
What if there was a different way? What if your partnership with LSM could tackle the root causes of the recent riots in Haiti? We think it’s possible!
CHANGE IS POSSIBLE.
With your help, we can give opportunities for a different kind of future to kids like Peterson*. He lost his parents when he was very young. Although his grandmother tried caring for him, he spent most days roaming the streets with no clothes and a hungry belly.
Thankfully, with the support of people just like you, Peterson was able to come to an LSM Home of Hope when he was nine years old.
His life changed overnight. He went from sleeping on the streets – naked and totally vulnerable – to living in a comfortable home with three meals a day, clothes and his own bed. He excelled in school and quickly advanced through classes that he had missed out on. At home, he developed a sweet relationship with his new parents. He speaks very fondly of them, “Whatever the problems are that we are going through, Mommy and Papi are always there for us.”
There is no doubt that without LSM’s intervention, Peterson would not have the stability of a nurturing family. He would not have the resources for his future. It would be so easy to resort to rioting in the streets with those around him out of desperation.
But Peterson isn’t tearing down Haiti. He is building it up.
Today, Peterson is 15. He loves school, and is at the top of his class. His favorite subjects are science and math. After he graduates, he’s thinking about becoming an engineer or a doctor. He says he wants to give back because he’s been given so much. Peterson will do great things for his country. We see that in his spirit to love others and his dedication to work hard.
But without your support, children like PETERSON will not have the resources to succeed & HELP TRANSFORM THEIR CULTURE FOR CHRIST!
