HELPING HAITIAN ANGELS SECURES 40 ACRES TO BUILD ORPHANAGE in HAITI
HELPING HAITIAN ANGELS SECURES 40 ACRES TO BUILD ORPHANAGE in HAITI

In 2010, Haymarket, Va. residents, Bill and Debbie Harvey, founders of Helping Haitian Angels, began the slow process of acquiring 40 acres in Haiti with plans to build orphan homes, a church, a school and a medical clinic for Haiti’s orphans of Limonade, Haiti. After two years, Helping Haitian Angels finally realized their dream with the help of donors, friends and family who helped raise the $60,000 to acquire the land.

“We have worked steadily for two and a half years, working through Haitian legal paperwork, but never gave up the hope that we would be able to provide our current 43 children and the Haitian, Limonade community of many more kids, a place to grow, live and love,” said Debbie Harvey, co-founder of Helping Haitian Angels of Haymarket, Va. “It has been a labor of love for us…these orphans are some of the poorest of the poor, but they are certainly rich in spirit and faith,” said Harvey.

Helping Haitian Angels is in the process of raising $750,000 to begin construction in Limonade, Haiti, near Cap Haiten.  With the support of many donors and supporters, they hope to break ground within 90 days. Helping Haitian Angels is working toward building the Kay Anj Village in four phases, to include: family homes to house more than 80 abandoned kids, a church, a school, a medical clinic and a farm. The goal is to have one ‘mother’ per eight children in one home to encourage a family structure and family life. And with no money or transportation, most of these orphans cannot go to school, church or receive medical care.  Farms will be established to help support self-sustaining skills and life-long sustenance for these growing children and families.

Donors can "purchase" items for the Kay Anj Village, from a house at $30,000 to a goat for $150, with 100 percent of their money going to purchased items.  Architectural designs are complete and Haitian staff will oversee the building project.

ABOUT HELPING HAITIAN ANGELS
Helping Haitian Angels™ (HHA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit Christian organization, was founded by Bill and Debbie Harvey of Haymarket, Va. in 2008. After several missionary trips to Haiti starting in 2005, Bill – a successful businessman from the Washington, D.C. region – finally convinced his wife, Debbie – a Northern Virginia real estate agent - to join him on a missionary trip to Cap Haitien, Haiti. During this trip in 2008, Bill and Debbie were asked to visit an abandoned building where 35 Haitian orphans were ill and starving. The Harveys knew instantly that they had been ‘called’ to nourish and protect those children as an extension of their own family of five in Northern Virginia.
