Komite ti Fanmi Nou de Diakonos (Diakonos International)

The orphanage in question is nestled in Carrefour, a region that was the epicenter of the tragic 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The devastation left in the aftermath of this natural disaster was immense, and the need for immediate aid was critical. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, Haitian Orphans Wish (H.O.W) sprang into action, donating a water tank to the orphanage. This essential contribution ensured the children had access to clean, safe drinking water, a necessity that was in scarce supply following the earthquake.

H.O.W’s support, however, did not cease with the conclusion of immediate relief efforts. The organization has continued to assist by financing a series of specific projects aimed at improving the living conditions and quality of life of the children in the orphanage. These projects encompass a range of initiatives, from infrastructural improvements to educational and recreational programs, each tailored to address the unique needs of these children.

Diakonos, the organization running the orphanage, offers an innovative and dynamic approach to tackling the orphan and homelessness crisis in Haiti. Their flagship initiative is the “Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou” or “Community for Our Families”, a family home established in the neighboring city of Port-au-Prince, specifically in Carrefour. This home serves as a sanctuary for approximately 20 children, providing them with a nurturing and familial environment.

The atmosphere within the “Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou” home is friendly and welcoming, designed to make the children feel loved and cared for. It is a place where they can grow and develop in a safe and supportive environment, far removed from the uncertainties and hardships of their past. Governed by the principles of Love and Compassion, and guided by the Word of God, the home aims to instill a sense of belonging in these children.

The home provides holistic care to children who are parentless, abandoned, homeless, or rejected. The caregivers understand that each child is a unique individual with their own set of needs, aspirations, and dreams. Therefore, they strive to provide personalized care that caters to the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of each child, helping them heal from their past traumas and look forward to a brighter future.

In conclusion, the orphanage in Carrefour, backed by H.O.W and run by Diakonos, is more than just a place of refuge for these children. It is a home where they are loved, cared for, and allowed to thrive. Through its various initiatives and consistent support, H.O.W is making a significant contribution towards improving the lives of these children, one day at a time.
