Life is Hope Orphanage - Haiti
The Young's Journey (May 24, 2013)

Original Project Scope
Life is Hope Orphanage has been caring for children since 2001. It grew in the days and weeks following the 2010 earthquake to 100 children, many of whom were living in tents or were completely homeless, while some didn’t have parents at all. Pastor Jean and his wife Olga were willing to take on more kids because they truly care for them, but now they have to turn away children because there is simply no more room in the current facility.

Praying Pelican Missions has come alongside Life is Hope Orphanage to help Pastor Jean fulfill his mission by connecting him with donors and support ministries. Pastor Jean has a vision for more housing capacity, a school, a trade school, and a medical clinic for the children. He believes that God can make these things possible. Will you help eMi put Pastor Jean's vision on paper and be God's hands and feet in helping make this vision a reality?
