Program Description: 
The town of Bellevue lies just a few miles west of Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. This area was the epicenter of Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake, and is the location of the first Children of the Nations Village Partnership Program in Haiti. Prior to the earthquake, families in Haiti lived in some of the poorest conditions in the Western Hemisphere. These conditions are even worse now, after the earthquake. In order to recover, rebuild, and gain hope for the future, the children of Haiti need the type of care that meets their physical, mental, social, and spiritual needs. Partners like you provide this type of care for some of the most desperate children in Haiti. Through your support, Children of the Nations can provide education, nutrition, health care, and spiritual guidance for children in the Bellevue area. Sponsors ensure children’s school fees, medical care, and daily meals are paid for. Visiting Venture Teams provide health care and host camps and activities that engage the community. By partnering with sponsors like you, we seek to provide the children of Bellevue with the resources and care they need to become well-rounded individuals. By equipping these children and their caregivers with tools for success, they will grow up to create positive change in their community and ultimately their nation.
