The Emmanuel Children's Home Foundation of Haiti was founded in the early 1970's by Pastor Francois Maurency of Bombardopolis, Haiti. He started the orphanage solely on his love for children and his calling to lend a hand to the fatherless and motherless. In the early days the orphanage thrived and had many benefactors that helped with the running of the home and the upkeep of the buildings. However since the recession of 2008 the pledges slowly dwindled and the financial support dried up. With the recent onslaught of many natural disasters too the home has been left in a state of disrepair. At the same time the founding family and church were praying for help a collection of marine professionals were looking for a worthy cause to help post Hurricane Matthew. This website is in direct response of our desire to help those effected by the Hurricane but in building our relationship with Emmanuel Children's Home Foundation of Haiti our goal has evolved into long term assistance for them. If we all give a little they will be able to do so much. There are 24 children currently at the home but they have the space for so many more, once they have the safe environment again and people willing to donate.
There are many sub projects at the home that need to be completed to enable the children a safe environment making sure they are living in suitable accommodations with adequate plumbing. Here is a brief list of what needs to be accomplished:
