Pierre-Michel and Michelet

I got back home yesterday morning and found these two brothers sitting on my stoop. The older one, Pierre-Michel, is 12 and Michelet is 8 years old. They had not eaten since the day before and were kicked out of school because their mother cannoy pay for them. Their father is paralyzed from an accident where he used to work. We will pay for their schooling ($150 for both to finish the year) and they'll be coming to eat with us everyday. Your support allows this so thank you.
In a future post I'll be introducing our Family to Family Program so stay tuned for details. God bless.

  1. I am curious about the family to family program. Speaking as a past visitor there are certain kids we connect with and would like to keep tabs on. It would be nice if there was some mechanism in place to be able to at least write letters to the kids. I was told the Haitian mail system is unreliable. Also I am glad to support Espwa however sometimes I would like to do something more for an individual and their family that would benefit their futures.
