5 million of the 10 million people living in Haiti are children.
750,000 of those 5 million children are orphans or have been abandoned by their parent(s).
50% of primary age children are not attending school.
One in 10 children die before the age of 5 due to malnutrition
These statistics are real and they are frightening. That is why our faith-based, non-profit organization, New Life Mission Haiti, is currently fundraising to build a children’s home in the rural mountain village of Charrier, Haiti. We believe that by investing in the lives of the children we can rise up leaders in Haiti to change the country for the better. We want to open a home where the children have a safe place to live with proper nutrition, have an opportunity to go to school, and most importantly, have a chance to learn about their Godly Father. Blueprints have been drawn up, land has been purchased and construction has begun, however there is a significant amount to be raised so we can open our doors in fall of 2016.
On October 10, 2015 we are throwing the first Hoedown for Haiti in Ephrata, PA to raise money to construct New Life Children’s Home. The night will consist of a good ole Lancaster county meal, raffle prizes, line dancing, and more! This will also give an opportunity to meet our team & learn more about our mission and plans for the children’s home.
Will you help sponsor the event? We would appreciate your donation of $100 or more with all donations being tax deductible. All donors will receive two tickets to the Hoedown along with recognition of their generosity in our newsletter, on our website, and at the event.
Please make your checks payable to New Life Fellowship, 420 East Fulton Street, Ephrata, PA 17522 with “Hoedown for Haiti” in the memo.
So who is excited for The Hoedown for Haiti?! I know we are! Currently we are looking for sponsors for this event. If you have a business, large or small or would just like to personally sponsor, please email us at newlifemissionshaiti.org or send a check with a note to clarify what it is to go towards or to the above listed address.
We are also looking for donations for the raffle. Prizes may included but are not limited to gift cards, services, themed baskets, monetary gifts, event tickets, etc. Prize donors will receive recognition of their generosity in our newsletter, on our website, and at the event. Prizes may be sent/delivered to 134 Niss Avenue, Ephrata, PA 17522 or can be picked up by one of our team members by calling or emailing.
This is going to be an event for fun and fellowship with friends so we really hope you can make it! More details on how to purchase tickets will be available soon!
