Orphan & vulnerable Children

Through the OVC Program, each Haitian church will help meet the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of 20 families caring for orphaned and vulnerable children by:

  • Forming a OVC committee team of 4-5 members (volunteers)

  • Assigning ministry team members to visit each family every month to provide ongoing support, encouragement, prayer and monitoring of the families

  • Providing education scholarships to Christian schools

  • Additional tutoring and counseling is available for children with special needs

  • Providing monthly food baskets to families for additional nourishment and nutrition

  • Offering health insurance to families so they can receive medical care, medication, and dental care as needed

  • Assisting with the needs of the families as appropriate, including helping with things like school supplies, clothing, shoes, etc.

  • Caring for families emotionally by providing counseling through our World Orphans Haiti social worker
