Chadasha's Little Hands and Feet

Meet Avila.  She and her older sister, Alicia, moved in with us at the Jimani Children’s Home after their mom died. She began her education with us, at the age of 10, learning how to read and write for the first time! Avila has a tender and sweet spirit about her and is always helping out however she can as part of the family.

And Bethsaida, she has the brightest smile of all the kids in the Port-au-Prince Children’s Home. She is four years old and has lived with us for a few years now, but is still sometimes slow to warm up to new people.  Once she does, however, she loves to play!

These are just a couple of the children in the care of the Chadasha Foundation who receive full-time care from our staff.  We are happy to be able to provide healthy and safe environments for these children, but with all of these little hands and feet, we need a little help— that’s where you come in.

We are excited to say that we are able to accept child sponsors for each of the children at our Haitian and Dominican facilities!  In sponsoring a child, you partner with us in everything it takes to support our care of that child.  Children that live in one of our two children’s homes receive food, clothing, supervision in a loving environment, age appropriate biblical teaching, school supplies, costs of both on-site and off-site education, health care and medications.  Everything it takes to raise and care for a child, we provide to the kids under our care.  We are the children’s primary care givers in all respects, and child sponsorship allows us to continue to provide for these children, and be able to take in others.

In Jimani, we also have the Day Program.  These kids receive two meals a day, tutoring, a safe and loving environment, and everything we provide for kids in our children’s homes, only they go home at night.  These are at-risk kids who we are trying make sure they stay with their families.  Our support allows single parents to work, and keeps the kids safe, in school, and off the streets.
Our goal is to continue to provide for the children in our care, and also reach out to be able to care for more children in more communities.  You can directly help these children by becoming a sponsor!  For a donation of $30 or $50 a month (depending on the program), you will help to provide these basic needs, and keep these children in a safe, loving environment. In fact, your sponsorship portfolio can include as many children as you would like to support on a monthly basis.
If you are doing the math, you may wonder how we can provide everything a child needs for only $30 a month?  Well, we can’t.  Our “Multiple Sponsor” system allows that each child may have multiple sponsors up to a maximum monthly amount, depending on program needs.  For example, costs are higher for the children who live in our Children’s Home than for the kids who attend our Day Program; therefore, they have more sponsorship slots available to help us meet their needs.  This allows more individuals and families to partner with us, becoming an integral part of our support network and extended family.
All funds donated through child sponsorship go directly to the care of the children who live with us, and those in the Day Program.  We use Facebook groups to keep our sponsors in touch and up-to-date on what’s going on in the lives of your children, so you can see the good that your donations are doing!

We are so excited about the impact we are making in the lives of these children, and hope that, with your help, we can make a difference in the lives of many more kids in need— to present God’s perfect plan to the children that are placed in our care, and teach them how special they are in God’s eyes, no matter what their background is or how they were brought into this world.  We have been very blessed in what we have been given, and teaching the love of Christ to so many deprived children is such a blessing in growing the Kingdom of God.
