HCI Builds an Orphanage for Abandoned and Displaced Children in Haiti


Mount Pleasant, MICH - Heart Cry International, a non-profit Christian organization located in Mount Pleasant, MICH, established an orphanage for children that were abandoned or displaced due to the recent earthquake in Haiti. Haiti suffered from a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake in January 2010. This earthquake destroyed many lives in Haiti and children were greatly affected by this disastrous event. Many of them were left to fend for themselves while enduring the tragic loss of family members and their homes. They had no one to cater for them.
Founders of HCI, Pastors Ron and Carla Ives have both travelled to Haiti numerous times after the earthquake, to provide relief kits to affected children. They have also led volunteers to help in rebuilding the nation but they felt the need to do more.

As a non-profit organization whose mission is to transform “nations through discipleship and humanitarian projects targeting children of poverty, abuse and abandonment,” HCI decided to open My Heart’s Home in Port au Prince, Haiti, in May 2010 where 10 children are currently being taken care of. There are permanent caregivers who look after the orphaned children in their new home and HCI hopes to find more sponsors. This way, it is able to take in more children in need of help and care.
