Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) was founded in 1971 in France by a group of doctors and journalists in the wake of war and famine in Biafra. Their aim was to establish an independent organisation that focuses on delivering emergency medicine aid quickly, effectively and impartially.
Three hundred volunteers made up the organisation when it was founded: doctors, nurses and other staff, including the 13 founding doctors and journalists.
MSF was created in the belief that all people should have access to healthcare regardless of gender, race, religion, creed or political affiliation, and that people’s medical needs outweigh respect for national boundaries. MSF’s principles of action are described in our charter, which established a framework for our activities.

The Zachary family has served as missionaries in the country of Haiti since 1994. Their activities consisted of typical missionary projects such as religious teaching, church building, and aid for the poor, plus general community help activities, such as road building, well drilling, and distributing food to several feeding programs for children.When the Zachary’s moved to Haiti, they first sold their home, farm, equipment, vehicles, furniture, and other household belongings to support themselves in their missionary endeavors along with help from their home church, Greenbriar Community Church of Anderson, IN. However, in the fall of 1997, they became a sponsored project of Grace International World Outreach, a non-profit corporation located in Laurel, MS.Since 1997, the mission projects have grown and become focused on a particularly impoverished part of Haiti, a rural village called Cazale. There the mission has formed a medical clinic as well as a rescue center for children with life-threatening conditions, such as kwashiorkor, severe malnutrition, and third-degree burns.
In 2006 the founders of Grace International World Outreach decided to personally serve as missionaries in the Philippines. Consequently, in September 2006, the Zachary family, with the help and encouragement of Greenbriar Community Church, formed their own 501c-3 non-profit organization to operate the Haiti mission under the title Real Hope for Haiti, a non-profit corporation registered in Indiana.

Our mission targets the multiple struggles that the majority of the children and their families are confronted with in very poor remote regions in Haiti. FEJ-USA aims to create model programs that consolidate communities and utilize educational strategies and structures to strengthen and support families.
FEJ-USA envisions developing culturally sensitive educational programs taking into consideration a holistic approach to the education of each child and adults in their existing communities. By providing child and family protection in a nurturing and loving environment where learning is encouraged, our aim is to provide a safety net for risk-taking and self actualization.
Our philosophy promotes sustainable human development and the need to advocate against marginalization of families. FEJ-USA intends to provide education, health and community development to children and families living in rural villages in impoverished regions in Haiti; regardless of race, ethnicity, religious beliefs or political associations.
