Open Doorways Orphanage board of directors would like to thank all of the local residents who have expressed their concerns about our orphanage in Haiti this hurricane season. Thankfully, no hurricane has affected the orphanage to date. Our supervisor in Haiti has reported that they experienced some heavy rain earlier when Irma passed by but there was no damage to the region.

Fundraising events such as this help us to raise money to meet our operating budget of approx. $3,000 USD per month.  With the decline of the Canadian dollar over the past year, a significant strain has been put on ODO resources.  We would like to establish and maintain a regular donor base to ensure the stability of cash flow, fund a vehicle purchase and any future education costs for the children.  We would like to encourage you to become a dedicated monthly donor so we can continue to provide for the children so they can have a bright and stable future.  For ease of making monthly or one-time donations we have set up automatic banking withdrawals.  Please see the attached link below to fill out a donation form.  It can be returned to ODO via email or mail.

Lilianne Gauthier, Secretary, Open Doorways Orphanage Volunteer Board of Directors

Haiti, the poorest nation in the western hemisphere, has countless children struggling daily with the realities of dying, being orphaned, abandoned or sold to slavery. The vision of Open Doorways Orphanage is to establish a home for some of these children who are desperately longing to be individually nurtured with love and given the basic provisions of food, clothing, shelter, safe water, medical care and education. Giving these children the opportunity to embrace the gift of their life and the hope to reach their full potential with dignity can in turn empower them to bring healing and a brighter future for themselves and their country.
