Spirit of the Season Part 1
As we look forward to holiday time with friends and family, please remember the children of Maison Fortune Orphanage. We are so blessed to have your continued support for the 177 resident children and additional 222-day students. The second half of 2021 has been a tumultuous time in Haiti – but through it all, our children have remained safe, continued their studies, and been nurtured by our all-Haitian staff thanks to you!

During the month of December, our students will take part in community outreach in Hinche with the help of founder Jean Louis. They will embody the “Spirit of the Season.” The MFO student ambassadors will spread goodwill over the Christmas season by sharing time with the poor in their local community. Through simple acts of kindness and cheer, they will show the true reason for the season: peace, joy, and love. We are indeed very proud of our children for they truly are the future of Haiti!

Help the children this holiday season with your donation!

Update: New calm on the crisis in Haiti

The gas shortages spurred by gang control which afflicted the country of Haiti in October and November are slowly subsiding. However, the rippling effects are still present. Staple prices for food remain inflated, but luckily, stock is now available in Hinche. In late October, staff traveled to Cap Haitian in order to get food stock, as none was available locally at a reasonable price.

At the end of November, a new ministerial cabinet has taken charge of assisting the interim Prime Minister with day-to-day governance. They have their work cut out for them and restoring order in the wake of the gang control and violence is a high priority.

Jean Louis reports “things are slowly returning to normal” in Hinche.
