2005 - Present

From 2005-2012 in Montrouis, Haiti, Restore A Child provided food and education to 177 students… among them 30 orphans. We also distributed food to thousands of people in the community during the 2010 earthquake.

In 2011 Restore a Child partnered with Upward Bound Ministry in Bois Pin, LasCahobas. Under the direction of Professor John Youngberg, a member of Restore a Child Board of Directors, and professor at Southern Adventist University in Tennessee, he helped build a guesthouse for volunteers on the second floor.  In 2013, with a grant from VERSACARE and Sumaia Hasso we purchased two pieces of land to build the Restore a Child Academie, and another plot of land for agriculture.

 

In December 2013 Restore a Child Academie became a reality, built in four months under the supervision of New York Civil Engineer Joseph Valcin.  The school now has 200 poor children from the community who come hungry without eating breakfast.  One food bank is providing food and snacks for all the children every day. We hired four cooks to provide a nutritious meal and built a kitchen and storage for the food. Since the municipal water is not reliable, a reservoir for clean drinking was built to collect water during the five-month rainy season.

 

With the help of Professor Youngberg and Engineer Joseph Valcin we built The Norman Hasso Home and another huge multi-purpose building and started building a school, helped with a well and purchase of truck. Mission trips from Southern Adventist University and Andrews University and Lodi Church with Professor Scott Ward helped build the kitchen. Funds donated from these three entities helped with the foundation of the Restore a Child School in Bohoc, Haiti
