Arms of Hope – Mirebalais Haiti
Arms of Hope is place of love for orphans and abandoned children in Mirebalais Haiti. We seek to provide a Christ-centered caring environment, showing the love of Jesus to those who have so rarely seen it.
While the reasons they are left alone vary widely – the need is the same. They need someone to feed, clothe, and provide a bed; but more importantly someone to love them and share the love of God.
For nearly 30 years, Arms of Hope has taken in children off the streets and poor houses of Haiti, and cared for them. You will not find a better staff, nor more serious about the work we do. Arms of Hope was founded in 1985, and that year helped care for 5 children. Since then the home has cared for an average of 20-25 children at any given time.
In addition to the Children’s Home, Arms of Hope also has four other important outreaches:
Our nutrition program is designed to help pull children with acute nutrition to a safe nutrition level. This important program literally helps keep kids from starving. These aren’t always orphans: many times their parents just can’t provide enough food to keep them full and healthy.
In the United States, a widow has many options: in Haiti, a widow is much more likely to go hungry. Arms of Hope sponsors a food program that provides basic essentials like beans and rice to widows who would often otherwise go hungry.
Arms of Hope helps supports eighteen churches throughout Haiti, sharing the love of God with a nation that truly needs a Savior.
We have churches located in Mirebalais, Trianon, Saut d’eau, Madame Cyr, Cabaille,Bellevue, Boucan Carre, Vincent, Nivard, Losse, Marrouge, La plaine, Jacmel, Delmas, Thomassique, Atelko, Bukbanik, and Savane Moulate.
Our school in Sus Bla provides a bright future for over 100 students.
