They wake up in the Dark and they go to bed in the Dark, because there is NO electricity. They hope there will be Food available when they wake up. Childhood should be a time of joy and discovery.  Playing with friends. Riding a bike.  The first day of school. But the grim truth is that half the world’s children live in poverty.

Bedsaini, Kervens and Ismaeline, along with many other children either lost their parents in the earthquake of 2010, in Haiti, or have one parent who cannot afford to provide even the basics for the children. Today more than ever there’s an opportunity to help change that. Divine Intervention International’s (DII) mission is to develop a non-profit residential facility to house 30 children in De Faugasse, Haiti.  In addition, DII will advocate on behalf of the children by providing adequate housing, enhanced education, and health and wellness services to foster a supportive environment in which children and families grow personally, emotionally and spiritually.

We hope to accomplish this by using sponsorship as a means for helping the children. We believe that this is the most effective way to provide stable ongoing benefits and services to the children. DII has already provided school supplies, tuition, food and support to the children and caretakers, thanks to past support from generous donors.

Moving forward in our mission, we have set a fundraising goal of $50,000.00 to help build a house for the orphans and are seeking financial support. Every donation is vital and the need is always great.

Without the continued help from donors, the children will go without food, housing, education and clothing. DII believes that contributions of any amount between $50 – $1000, or whatever people can afford to give can change a child’s life forever!

Because DII is in the process of completing the incorporation process, checks should be made payable to: L. Moragne-Macon, and sent to: 6802 N. 10th St. Philadelphia, PA, 19126. You may also contact DII at 267-228-5371. The EIN number of DII is: 90-1001714.
