Spirit of the Season Part 3
The boys’ campus is bustling with activity today as residents and staff decorate, cook, and make ready for spreading the Spirit of the Season.

Earlier this week, students visited with local poor to invite them to a campus celebration tomorrow afternoon (Christmas Eve day), the children of Maison Fortune Orphanage will share the boy’s campus with local Hinche citizens who are disadvantaged and disabled.

The outreach event will encompass a dance exhibition, music, and sharing light refreshments with the less fortunate. Thank you for your support of our youth. With your help, we are instilling the love of simple acts of human kindness and goodwill.

As we celebrate the Spirit of the Season please remember the children of Maison Fortune Orphanage. Your tax-deductible donation is a great way to honor a loved one this holiday season. The Foundation will notify your designated recipient of your honorarium.

Donate today in honor of a loved one!

Together with our dedicated team of 53 Haitian staff members, 177 residents, 222 day students, ten Board members and YOU, the Spirit of the Season is shining brightly on the campus of Maison Fortune Orphanage. Thank you!

Jwaye Nwel and Mesi Anpil to Seton Hall University’s Division Of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE)

It has been five years since our partners at Seton Hall University traveled to share time and Christian fellowship with our residents at Maison Fortune Orphanage. Civil unrest has unfortunately prevented these trips and visits.

In the early part of 2021, I reached out to the DOVE director, Michelle Peterson and we discussed ways to reconnect, and “Zanmi Chat” was born. Over the rest of the school year, Seton Hall students connected online via Google Hang-outs with our older resident boys and girls. They talk about everything – from their favorite foods and classes to how they spend their free time. It has been a wonderful way to stay connected and share cultures.

DOVE’s support of Maison Fortune Orphanage this school year has been incredible! We are grateful for DOVE’s help in funding new desks, benches, chairs, mattresses, paint, and dining tables. Tomorrow’s outreach celebration is completely funded by DOVE – including the purchase of the annual “Christmas Bull” which is a big treat for our residents. They consume this meat throughout the Christmas break, culminating on New Year’s day with soup joumou!

On behalf of the children and staff of Maison Fortune Orphanage, we are so thankful for our partners at Seton Hall University’s DOVE and send wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
