CARING FOR HAITI'S CHILDREN
In 1999, Guesno and Majorie Mardy felt compelled to improve the lives of the Haitian street children they saw on a daily basis. These forgotten kids were in desperate need of nutrition, shelter and love. Having only Guesno’s income from driving a taxi, they decided to take in 17 Haitian children — and Foyer de Sion orphanage was born.
With thousands of needy children still on the street, the Mardys' act made a relatively small difference. Saving all of Haiti’s children looms like an insurmountable feat, yet the Mardys believe in the butterfly effect — that somehow their act of hope will ripple out into the world, gaining momentum, and helping more children.
This rippling of hope has reached over 250 Haitian children to date — feeding them, protecting them, and finding them loving families. Somehow that wave of hope has reached you. You have found Foyer de Sion, and have the opportunity to increase this surge of hope with your love and compassion. Please know that whatever contribution you can make (volunteering; financial assistance; or medical or other professional services), will make a profound difference in the lives of the children of Foyer de Sion.
Please support Foyer de Sion however you can, and you will be lifted and transformed with the same wings of hope that you offer to the Haitian children.
