Orphanage

Croatian Relief Services has stepped forward in faith and has made a contract in Haiti to open an orphanage for the destitute and hungry street children. The orphanage will be called “Cardinal Stepinac Children Center of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti.” We are currently short of the funds necessary to prepare the complex for the children’s arrival. It will require $400,000 to begin. The complex will have a chicken, goat and sheep farm, all of which will help us to feed the hungry children, who will come to us to escape the danger of the street. The animals, as well as an on site vegetable garden, will help the orphanage become self sustaining. We will also provide a vocational school to train young boys and girls particular trades so that they can go on to support themselves as adults.

At this time, Croatian Relief Services is asking those who can help us to lend us $1,000, interest free, for a period of one year. This means that you will receive your money at the end of the first year, interest free. The loan will be documented and signed by us and will be sent t you for you record. The loan will be put together for one year and we aim to have the orphanage ready in September. A new board has been formed in Haiti for the project. Why are we doing this?
