Julienne and her sister Louisiana arrived at the HOLD the Children Home in 2012.  We are very happy to have the sisters with us at the home. They are very helpful with the younger kids, especially when they are afraid.  Most of us don’t realize the difficult circumstances that many of these children have been through at this young age.  Life is Haiti is hard, and especially for children.  Most Haitian children learn to provide for themselves at very young ages.  It is not uncommon to see small children carrying 5 gallon buckets of water.

Let's look at all the children.

In one of the most remote parts of Haiti there is a refuge for children.  Some would pass by the plain, ordinary block wall and never realize the miracle on the other side…a sanctuary where God’s loving hand has reached.  Forty-two children are well cared for every day by staff of Mission Discovery’s HOLD the Children program.  The HOLD the Children Home was founded 10 years ago to answer the need of abandoned or abused children.  Parents could no longer care for these children, or they were caught in an abusive cycle of child trafficking where children are sold as “restavecs” (child slaves

Praise God, the students at the HOLD supported school in Port de Paix are in class.  Money was provided for a down payment on a building and for necessary repairs to the roof.  The roof needed repairs before the students were permitted in the building.  Thank you all who contributed more than $12,000 to ensure the children had a place to attend classes.  You are so important in the lives of these children and it is because of you that their education will continue.

God continues to bless the children and the staff at the HOLD Home in Haiti.  The new kitchen and storage building are completed.  The staff is elated with the additional room and is especially happy about the gas stove that makes their job of cooking for the 43 children a little easier.
