Located in Cavaillon, a quaint town in the southern part of Haiti, lies a sanctuary for young girls seeking refuge – an orphanage run by the dedicated Sisters of Charity of Saint-Hyacinthe. This haven is currently home to about 25 girls, their ages ranging from as young as 4 to about 12. Each of these girls carries a unique story, yet they all share a common thread of resilience and hope.

The Sisters of Charity of Saint-Hyacinthe not only provide these girls with a safe and nurturing environment but also ensure they receive a proper education. All the girls residing in the orphanage attend the nursery or the elementary school operated by the Sisters. This educational initiative underscores the Sisters’ commitment to empowering these girls through knowledge and learning, equipping them with skills that will serve them well in the future.

The orphanage operates entirely on the goodwill of others, funded solely through donations. The generosity of individuals and organizations enables the Sisters to continue their noble mission of caring for these girls. However, the needs are great, and there is always room for more assistance to ensure the girls receive the best care possible.

Haitian Orphans Wish (H.O.W) is one such organization that has stepped in to support the orphanage. Recognizing the need for enhanced security measures, H.O.W will be funding specific projects like the construction of a fence around the property. This initiative is a crucial step in providing greater protection for the children, ensuring they can live and play in a secure environment.

The situation in Cavaillon is dire, and the girls at the orphanage are in desperate need of help. Donations, both monetary and in-kind, are greatly appreciated and go a long way in improving the living conditions of these girls. The orphanage can be reached via mail at: Maison Regionale, 146 Ave. PanAmericaine, Petionville, Haiti W.I.

In conclusion, the orphanage in Cavaillon, managed by the Sisters of Charity of Saint-Hyacinthe, is a beacon of hope for the girls it houses. With the support of organizations like H.O.W and the generosity of donors, the orphanage continues to provide a safe haven and a brighter future for these children. Each contribution, big or small, brings them one step closer to a life of security, education, and happiness.
