Haiti

Approximately 76% of Haitians live on less than two dollars per day. Nearly 56% live on less than one dollar. Children die of starvation and treatable diseases each year. In fact, one in five children will be dead before their fifth birthday. Almost half a million children grow up as orphans. Hundreds of thousands more are in slavery. Their parents often die from AIDS. Daily nourishment is found in local garbage dumps, the consumption of which leads to deadly infection. When the dump is picked clean, they eat dirt. Sometimes discarded babies are found among the trash.


The depth of poverty struck the heart of Bridge of Hope partners and friends as they learned of the country’s plight. They funded Bridge of Hope’s distribution of 300,000 pounds of food and medical supplies. Without the clear determination of BOH partners to further the tangible love of Christ, many children would not survive. But because of their selflessness, the chasm between despair and hope was securely bridged.
