La Colline Child Survival Program (Haiti)
Carrefour La Colline, Haiti
Thousands of mothers and babies living in Haiti face homelessness, hunger and illness. The earthquake that devastated the country in 2010 made life even worse for families who live in poverty. But you can give the greatest gift of all — the gift of life.
Your gifts help provide pregnant mothers with prenatal care. And in a community where many mothers cannot afford medical care, the Child Survival Program ensures that each mother has access to a trained birth attendant or doctor during delivery of her baby. This alone saves countless lives!
Caregivers and babies receive milk, vitamins, and food such as corn, rice, peas and cassava (a starchy root with edible leaves). They also receive hygiene supplies and medical checkups. Trained Christian staff members reach out to mothers and their children through regular home visits and counseling and help them access needed medical care.
Mothers enrolled in the program also grow spiritually and socially through Bible studies and prayer meetings. They are trained in child care and health, nutrition and hygiene. Many attend literacy classes and also learn income-generating skills such as cooking and embroidery. Your gifts to this center will transform lives and offer incredible hope!
This center, HA-C22, is a ministry of the Baptist Church of Carrefour La Colline in cooperation with Compassion.
