Heart for Haiti

Heart for Haiti is committed to helping Haiti’s poorest children. Our dream is to give them a future without poverty and that is possible at the children’s village ‘Bon Repos’. This village is located nearby Haiti’s capital city, Port-au-Prince. In the 1980s, the village was quite literally built from nothing by missionary Johan Smoorenburg. 

Almost 150 children live at Bon Repos in twelve apartments. About twelve children of different ages live in each apartment, where they are supervised by an ‘aunty.’ This means that the set-up is as close as possible to that of an ordinary family. These children are orphans or they are from families unable to care for them. In the village, they are given a roof over their heads and enough to eat. They can attend school and go to church and this enables them to build a stable future.’
