From Liberia to Haiti, with L.O.V.E.

It is with a great sense of excitement that we can confirm the funding of Everland Haiti is now complete, it being the second children's home that Michael's faithful have enabled.

   

Haiti is a troubled place, the divide between rich and poor is great, and in the many poorer parts, due to lack of education or rape, very young girls are getting pregnant only to abandon them at the nearest hospital, or they throw them into the garbage. The partnership MJL has formed with the Haitian Leadership Foundation will ensure a safe and warm home for these otherwise neglected babies, and will enable appropriate education of troubled youngsters in order to prevent further spiralling problems which affect an entire society. 

  

Everland Haiti is situated in the Christian Village of Nod Dorcilien in Mirbalais. The total cost of the earthquake-proof building was $20,500 USD, and Michael's fans did it again. YOU funded the entire building which will cater for up to 30 babies and toddlers at any given time.

 

A staff of five women and a nurse will be employed with help from the Ministry of Social Affairs, with whom the Haitian Leadership Foundation have a good rapport. A wonderful lady called Gladys and her husband, the Bishop, will head up the project out there and ensure that it is a success on the ground. Between them, they have years of experience in helping destitute children. Gladys herself lived in the Congo for 20 years - no mean feat - before spending another 16 years doing humanitarian work in Haiti. They are now committed to building a village for at least 400 people, of which Everland Haiti will be an invaluable part.

We would like to thank our Honorary Ambassador,Dr Patrick Treacy, for helping us to find the perfect location, perfect people, and another desperately-needed project. We knew, of course, that Michael's faithful would once again step up the mark and do his legacy proud. Let's heal this world together and keep Michael's light shining brightly into the future.  If not us, whose hearts have been touched so profoundly by his life, then who?
