Beaudin Lovinsky – Children Foundation of Haiti

Our mission to help Beaudin Lovinsky and the Children’s Foundation of Haiti was a success! We will continue to support the foundation on a monthly basis with funds raised by the continuous support from donors. Below you can see pictures from our trip to the Children’s Foundation of Haiti in February, 2011.

100% of donations made go towards the Children’s Foundation of Haiti, unlike many other charitable organizations a large portion goes towards administration & fundraising costs.

We would like to thank everyone who has made a donation that has helped to support our fundraiser, we raised $4080.38 for the Children’s Foundation of Haiti. After seeing this picture posted on the internet for the one year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake it has inspired us to help the children in this orphanage. Our goal is to continue to support the Children’s Foundation of Haiti on a monthly basis. If you wish to help us support this cause please don’t hesitate to make a donation, anything contributed is greatly appreciated.

Beaudin Lovinsky, a 4-year-old orphan, is dropped off with his belongings in a suitcase by his uncle (left) to be placed in the Children’s Foundation of Haiti orphanage, which is currently housed in makeshift tents in a tent city near the airport on January 10, 2011 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Lovinsky’s mother perished in the earthquake and his uncle said he could no longer afford to take care of him. It is common for Haitian families to place children they cannot afford to care for in orphanages. The orphanage’s building was damaged by the earthquake, forcing many of the orphans into tents. The orphanage has received no governmental assistance and little help from aid groups. According to the United Nations Children’s Fund, Haiti was home to more than 350,000 orphans before the earthquake, with many more orphaned following the quake. UNICEF recently announced that around 380,000 Haitian children are still living in camps one year after the earthquake.
