Reach Haiti’s Children

One of our featured speakers for Tour of Hope is our partner and my dear friend Danita Estrella.

Twelve years ago, she left her life in the U.S. behind, moving to Haiti with nothing but a stirring in her heart to serve the people of Haiti in any way God directed her.

Danita now operates a state-of-the-art facility that is a beacon of hope amidst the earthquake rubble that still encapsulates the tiny island nation.

She currently oversees a children’s home, feeding center, school, church, and a children’s medical clinic, which is close to completion, to serve the entire community. View this video to learn more about Danita’s heart and passion to reach Haiti.

I want to take a moment to share a very specific need that you and I can help meet for Danita and the infants who are currently in her care.

The Need: The funds to provide baby formula for babies living in the children’s home for one year, approximately $7,200. The canisters cost $20 each, and 30 canisters are needed each month.

Why Baby Formula? The babies that reside in the children’s home are often rescued and usually arrive extremely malnourished. According to UNICEF, as many as 300,000 Haitian children suffer from chronic malnutrition, and up to half of child death’s in the country are caused by malnutrition. We can help change this!

The Challenge: Make it your goal to inspire five others to give a gift of $20 to cover the cost of one canister of baby formula. If just 60 women accept this challenge, we will be able to meet our goal of raising $7,200.

We have made it easy for you to join, by creating a fundraising page at tourofhope.me!

You ($20) + Five Friends ($100) X 60 women doing the same = $7,200.

It is amazing that something as simple as baby formula can help save the lives of children Danita and her team rescue.

Will you help me meet this goal?
