HFL Child Sponsorship Program
From the beginning, we at Hope for La Gonave, have known and seen first hand the great advantage of individual child sponsorship. When confronted with the great need of Haiti and its people, most have the desire to help. The needs loom overwhelming.
Where to start? What to do?
The opportunity to sponsor a child who is uniquely yours, getting to know him or her and their family and to experience the great difference you and your family can make in one life is extraordinary.
For the cost of one family visit to a fast food restaurant ( $30.00 ) a child at an HFL school can receive a Christian education, meals at school and medical help when needed. On our frequent visits to the island, we are able to get regular updates on sponsored children, take letters and small gifts you may send and bring back their letters and communications to sponsors. It is truly an investment in the life and future of Haiti as the great needs are addressed one child and one family at a time.
I am blessed to walk among these children often. When a child is paired with a sponsor, the change I see is amazing! As the children begin to have high protein meals and vitamin supplements, vitality replaces listlessness. Bright eyes and smiles replace expressionless faces. And little minds are ready and eager to learn.
Doubens Cidoine was such a child. Suffering from Cerebral Palsy, he sat in a rusty dilapidated wheelchair watching life pass him by. He was dirty and helpless. The hopelessness in the eyes of this six-year old was utterly heartbreaking. When the Pesole Family heard Doubens’, they made an immediate decision to sponsor him and their first gift was a beautiful new wheelchair. Their prayers and love for this little boy have brought such a change. When I saw Doubens two weeks ago, he was animated, smiling, clean, and giving me lots of hugs.
