Friends and family,

We continue to pray as our the HaitiChildren staff at our Village in Haiti  maintain their heroic efforts to care for our children.  It has been a tough year for the citizens, through environmental challenges and political unrest. The Haitian people are in the middle of a volatile pro-Democracy movement. Police violence escalates and the death toll of protesters has climbed to 20 people, including a 16 year old boy and several journalist. Please keep Haiti in your prayers and hearts, as we at HaitiChildren continue to work with our Haitian Team – to find solutions, peace, and hope for our children. We continue our mission to protect and help the children of Haiti, so that they may become the leaders that Haiti needs.
