We need everyone's help. We are hoping to feed 8500 children this year which comes to 2.5 million meals. We have been getting help from The Urban Refuge Church and Kids Against Hunger in Minniapolis with the purchasing, packaging of the food and some of the shipping costs. We are in need of funds to help with the shipping and getting the containers through customs and all the costs involved with the loading and unloading when it gets to Haiti. If you are able to help with $1000. we would only need to find 10 people to help for the short term. There is no amount too small. Please mail a cheque or go on line to donate. All information is on our web. www.lifelinehaiti.com

Food for thought...

God has assigned us all

Starvation, poverty & illiteracy. There are many statistics that cannot be changed but we believe the statistic that 400 children die each day in Haiti because of starvation is one that can be changed for the better.

I was so touched and inspired to see all the people that came out to help pack food for the children of Haiti. The 125,000 plus meals that were prepared will last us for about a month at our present level of students. It is just an example of what can happen if we all work together. Our need this year for our children that will be registered at our schools will be about 1.3 million meals and the other 4000 that are waiting for a school to start up in their areas were going to have to wait till sometime in the future. The problem with that is that many will die of starvation before that will happen so we must push hard to raise the funds to supply 2.5 million meals that will feed 8500 children.

Seeing what can happen when other organizations partner is amazing and has inspired me to believe this goal is possible. Will you consider helping with a generous donation. The cost to transport one container will be approx. $8,000 which will have approx. 270,000 meals. We will need 9 containers of food.

This would put a meal on their plate for just under $.05 per meal!!! How can we not! Check with your church, business, relatives or whoever to see if you can raise the money for a container to two. Children's lives are depending on us.

125,064 Meals prepard today for the children of Haiti

I was amazed today of all the volunteers that showed up today at The Urban Refuge Church in Minneapolis to help with packaging up food for the children in our schools in Haiti.
There were 5 shifts of people working from 9 to 5. This will be a huge help as we are in need of 1.3 million meals this year. The food was a mixture of rice, soy, dehydrate vegetables and a powdered mixture of vitamins and minerals. I will be back home on Tuesday and hope to post the pictures of all the children and adults that helped and more stats sometime over the next couple of days. All the food is brought in through an amazing organized named "Kids Against Hunger". I met with Richard, the founder of the organization on Friday and was inspired with his enthusiasm and vision of feeding all the starving people around the work. We are so great full that we are able to partner with them and the Urban Refuge Church. Thank you for making a difference!!!
