Franz Escar came to the HOLD Home in September 2013.  She was living with a pastor in Mole St. Nicholas following the death of her mother.  Pastors often are left with children that are either orphaned through the death of a mother or abandoned on the church steps.  Life is very hard in Haiti and children often pay a very heavy cost.  There are more than 450,000 orphans in Haiti.

Let's look at all the children.

God is doing so many great things at the HOLD the Children Home.  Last year was amazing.  Thanks for praying and supporting the work at the Home.  The security wall around the property acquired in 2014 was completed.  Within a few months, the money was raised and the work was completed.  The kitchen and storage room were completed in July 2015 making the cooks very happy.  Five of our children were reunited with extended family.  While we were saddened to see them leave, we are grateful that they are with family.  Five new children were admitted to the Home in September.
