The Children

From the onset, Planting Hope’s focus has been the development of a sustainable agricultural operation that provides food and income for Haitians. We remain dedicated to the founding objectives.

However, sometimes situations arise that simply cannot be ignored. In 2018 Planting Hope was presented with a situation quite unexpectedly. We were confronted with a situation where two sibling groups lost their single mothers and were left without anyone to care for them. Attempts to find relatives or alternate caregivers were not successful. So we made arrangements for their care. A bit of a detour? Yes. Outside of what we stand for? No.

God has supported us through the generosity of several donors. The children remain members of their community, well cared for, and certainly loved. What the future holds, only God knows. However, for the present, God has given us the task and we have accepted it.
