Kelley Erb Orphan School
There are many orphanages in Haiti due to the extreme poverty and disasters such as the 2010 earthquake. The Alpha and Omega Medical Ministry supervises 5-8 orphanages in the Port-au-Prince area. All medical care is given free to all the children in these orphanages by Drs. Vladimyr, Merline and Francise. Hearts and hope for Haiti helps to support the Little Angels Orphanage and its Pre-school. The school was added two years ago to protect young children from going out into a dangerous community to attend school.
Hearts and Hope for Haiti had a visiting team at the orphanage and new school in 2014. Members of the team were friends of a young college student studying early childhood education who had recently been murdered. They asked if the new school could be named for her, thus the Kelley Erb Pre-school. Her sister, Lindsey Erb Myers, the church and others, continue to work with us in supporting these lovely little children.
25-30 children live at this orphanage. Annual visits include spending a day with the children, taking shoes, underwear, socks, hair bows, pillow case dresses, school supplies and toys. Their joy at seeing our love and caring is an unimaginable reward.
