Over the past few years, we have come to love the people of Haiti and felt that God is directing us to help more in the country. Answering that call, lead to the creation of Hands Together Orphanage, a direct result of Empower Haiti’s generous donors.
We are currently the sole supporters of our local orphanage of 16 children in Montrouis, Haiti. Montrouis (pronounced "Moe-We") is approximately 1.25 hours north of Port-Au-Prince by car. The people of Montrouis are very friendly and are always welcoming to outsiders, and have lovingly supported our children and efforts.
The area is a tourist destination for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of Port-Au-Prince, so it's very common to see other Haitians and many French nationals in the hotels around Montrouis. However, there is still a great deal of poverty and people in need.
What a blessing it is to live in the United States, and we appreciate it even more when we go to Haiti. Please click on the Get Involved tab above to learn about what we are currently doing, and how you can help. 100% of money donated is going directly to support our 16 children!
