December is one of the most important months of the year for our organization. The generous financial support of passionate people like you is the only reason Breath of Life Haiti is able to continue our mission to empower the people of Haiti through education; while fighting maternal and infant mortality by providing midwifery care and sharing the love of Christ.
In 2019, we’ve been able to see incredible impact. So far this year (January-November) we have provided midwifery care to 99 women and babies (prenatal visits: 592, postpartum visits: 284, newborn exams: 155, births: 99, transfers, maternal deaths: 0, infant deaths: 0), 27,000 hot lunches to the children in the primary and kindergarten school, education for 27 people through our adult education program.
We have even greater ambitions for 2020. Together, we can see more lives impacted. In order to accomplish the goals we’ve set for 2019, we need to raise an additional $15,000 by Tuesday, December 31, 2019.
Reaching this goal will allow us to continue providing a hot meal and education to the students at the primary school ($7,235), cover the 12 month salary for our English teacher ($2,785), provide End-of-the-Year bonuses for our Haitian staff ($2,320), provide a Christmas dinner and bonus for our Haitian staff ($1,080).
Meeting our end-of-the-year goal will also send us into the new year with momentum, investing more than ever toward the future of the women and families in Dèsarmes, Haiti. Would you consider a gift of $100, $250, $500, or whatever amount is on your heart, to help us reach our goal of $15,000? Your gift will greatly impact the lives of women and children.
Donors who give an amount of $50 or more will receive a beautiful "Be the Change" keychain made by Haitian artisans from Papillon Enterprise.
Checks can be written and mailed to Breath of Life Haiti, PO Box 1792, Warsaw, Indiana 46581-1792. To give online, please go to, breathoflifehaiti.com/donations.
