In April 2010, shortly after the earthquake, Gabriel Fedelus had a vision to change the lives of children from the most impoverished areas of Haiti. Gabriel was offered rent-free space in a building on a commercial street of Port-Au-Prince, which allowed him to start Love Orphanage despite limited financial resources.

As a result, over the past 3 years, 16 children have been brought back to good health, living in a safe and loving environment, and attending school for the first time ever. But unexpectedly, the building owner has asked Love Orphanage to leave with little notice.

Rents in Haiti are paid annually, so Love Orphanage needs 1 year's rent up-front for quick relocation to a new home. Otherwise, the orphanage cannot go on. Please help Love Orphanage secure a new home so that it can continue to support these children.


WE DID IT!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS!!

LOVE ORPHANAGE IS NOW RELOCATED IN TO THEIR NEW HOME!

Back from Haiti and I'd like to share the good news!

Love Orphanage has successfully relocated to their new home. We visited them and spent time with the children. Aside from raising rent money, we also brought 8 suitcases filled with clothing, toiletries, toys, and school supplies.

The children are so happy to be in their new home, which is nicer and in a better neighborhood.

Thanks again for your support, this couldn't have happened without a team effort! We raised a total of $6173! So there is money left toward next years rent.

I will be visiting Love Orphanage again in December 2013, so if you would like to contribute funds toward the ongoing needs of food, utilities, and supplies for the children, please keep it on your radar.

Thanks again!!

I am thrilled to announce that WE DID IT!! Thanks to the combined effort, generosity, and support of all of you!

Our fundraising goal for Love Orphanage's new home was $4000, and we raised $5500!!! This means rent will be paid for their new home with some extra funds towards next years rent and needed supplies.

Also big thanks to all of you who donated clothing, school supplies, and toiletries. We have a total of 9 suitcases filled!

I fly to Haiti tomorrow with a Drexel/ESF team of 20 students and faculty. Our first stop is Love Orphanage to share the great news and spend time with the kids.

I am immensely grateful for all of your support, encouragement, and generosity!!

Stay tuned for photos and summary of our trip.
