Dieudnic is a young boy living in Haiti. He comes from a large family and has two brothers and two sisters. Dieudnic lives with his family in a small house that his father built. His parents are both unemployed, and it is difficult for them to provide for all the needs of their children. At times they have nothing to eat. Dieudnic and his family desperately need a sponsor so that Dieudnic can have a bright future. Through your sponsorship, Dieudnic will receive an education, medical assistance, nutritious meals, and most importantly biblical teaching. Thank you for drastically changing this young boy’s life.
Baptist Evangelical School of Grande Bassin
The Baptist Evangelical School of Grand Bassin shines the light of Christ in a spiritually dark environment. The center is part of a local church where many of its teachers are members of the church. The center meets one of the biggest needs in Haiti by covering the costs of education, including school supplies, fees, uniforms and shoes. Medical care is also available to children in need. Staff teach the Bible, encourage the children to attend church, and give opportunities for them to accept Christ.
Haiti is a mountainous nation in the Caribbean that shares a border with the Dominican Republic. Haiti is prone to droughts, floods, and hurricanes. The majority religion is Christianity, and over half of the population professes to be Catholic. Voodoo is also practiced by some as well. Unemployment is rampant throughout Haiti with little access to quality jobs. Families also struggle with alcoholism, malnutrition, and insufficient medical care. Because of the extreme poverty, parents struggle to pay for their children’s school fees and usually are not educated themselves.
