Your generosity saved a family from hunger and gave them a new life

Recently, we helped 11-year-old Marine from Haiti. She is one of five children of a single mother. Marine and her two younger brothers couldn’t attend school because their mother didn’t make enough money to pay for their school fees. Here is Marine’s story:

“Only my two older brothers had a chance of going to school. Because Maman was ashamed of not being able to send us to school, we always left the house with her in the morning. We would spend every day in the sun or the rain, away where the neighbors wouldn’t see us. We were always sad to see the other kids with their books and in their uniforms.

We had nothing to eat throughout the week. A bowl of rice was all Maman could afford for the whole family, and we fought for the food with my brothers. Only on Sundays after church did Maman prepare something if she managed to make a few sous during the week.

Since Maman started receiving monthly aid from the Fund for Assistance, we started going to the local school and we are so happy! We have enough money to buy bread and even butter. And there’s enough for us to eat even before we go to bed. 

We now have books and friends. We play and study. Thanks to your help, we have been able to be children again. Thank you, we are praying for you.”
