4 Children, No father present
The mortality age in Haiti is 60. However, many Haitian men and women outlive their children. This means that there is no one left to care for them. Some freeze to death during rainy season, some starve to death, and some die of preventable illness. We have started to identify this precious people group and offer not only food and medicine if possible, but hut repairs as well as help them get to church.
We are beginning to raise funds for our first micro-loan: Street Food Vendor. Each person is interviewed and evaluated to see if they would be good recipients for our micro-loan program. They will learn business practices: saving, tithing and spending as well as putting money aside each month to pay back the loan. They will be managed by our in-country staff to be sure the profits are being used wisely.
The father left about 6 months ago and none of the 4 children are in school. That means they are not learning basic life skills. They need shoes, food and medical care. A family sponsorship can cover all these needs. Consider sponsorship of this sweet family today.
UPDATE: All 3 children are being sent to school by generous donors, but we still need supporters for their daily needs!

We began fundraising for our Mobile Medical Clinic in September of 2018. This mobile clinic will identify children in remote areas who need surgical intervention. The children will be brought to our partner hospital in Cap Haitien, where American surgeons will come and use their gifts to help these children. Our clinic will also bring medical help to the unreached elderly, widows and orphans who are too far from medical facilities to even be seen! Future plans include care and training for special needs children and their families.

Our Family Sponsorship program exists to keep families together. Often times in Haiti, parents will make the ultimate sacrifice
and send their children to orphanages because there are so many that are run by Americans, that Haitian parents know their
children stand a better chance at survival if sent to an orphanage. We want to keep families together. We want children raised
by their loving parents and not 1 of 30 in an orphanage. Through our family sponsorships, children will be sent to school, and
families will receive food for their children as well as medical care when needed. The parents, in return, will work for The Vine Haiti.
Family sponsorships are $300/month for a 4 person family and can be split between multiple donors.
