Haiti in the Caribbean

Haiti is situated on the western one third of the island of Hispaniola, between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic, west of the Dominican Republic.  Haiti has a population of close to 10 million people in a land area that is less than half the size of Tasmania, Australia.  From Miami in Florida, it takes about 2 hours to fly to Haiti’s capital; Port-au-Prince.  The 2 national languages are Creole and French, however the majority of people speak only creole, unless they have had the good fortune to go to school.  Most people, if they have a job, earn less than Aus $3 a day! 

Some of the needs that have been met for these children to have hope.

Please pray for these kids and this ministry. Please consider if you can make a financial contribution or consider sponsoring a child. It costs US$140 per month per child to feed, clothe and educate them. If your small group of 4 people were to each contribute US$35 each per month to sponsor a child then we would have a lot of the costs covered. If an individual wants to sponsor a child then US$35 is fine and more than one person can sponsor a child. Please donate to the "Donate" button in the top right corner of the screen or you can do a one off direct donation to the COBSAMAT orphanage via an international wire.

If you are going to wire please remember there will be foriegn currency conversion fees and bank transfer fees at both ends. This means donating via an international transfer can absorb as much as US$35 to $50 of a donation. Please donate in US dollars.

Thank you and God Bless.
