Sometimes we are blessed with the unique opportunity to build and start homes specifically for Promise Children. We can save children off the streets who are orphaned and in danger of trafficking. This requires us to have Jesus-loving home parents and a facility to care for their every need. Of course, this requires more legal and financial responsibility than simple child sponsorship. Because of this, children living in a Promise Child Home require numerous sponsorships to cover the cost of their every need. We love giving these children a place to call home and people to call family. Often, they experience love, shelter, proper nutrition, education, and most importantly, Gospel-centered care for the first time. We are currently blessed to have three children’s homes in two nations.
Asia Girl's Home
After the devastating Asia earthquake in April of 2015, Promise Child was called to return to the country where our ministry began. In early 2016, we opened a girl’s home for children that have been affected by the disaster. Because of the dire living conditions, young girls are targets for trafficking. There are now 14 girls living in the newly established Promise Child home. We have had the privilege of watching these girls grow up into young, educated, and compassionate ladies over the years. Since these girls are being cared for on a full-time basis, they will need multiple sponsors to meet their needs. Many living expenses come with managing complete time care at the girl’s home. All of these remarkable young girls who live in our home are available for sponsorship on our general sponsor a child page.
Asia Children's Home
God called one of our in-country workers and his family to help vulnerable children in need of love, care, and protection. Our worker and his family live in a notorious district for trafficking young girls. The people group known as “Chepang” are the most marginalized and impoverished in Asia. Hundreds of children are trafficked for labor or are sold in brothels every year. Poor families are lured by much-needed money, which traffickers promise will be sent if they send their daughters to work. Our worker started by taking in two little children who would have died if they were not given medical attention and left in their grim living situation with only their poor aging grandmother to take care of them. This little act of love grew into a family, and his family is now taking care of 9 precious children (including two house parents’ children). Many of these children are orphans from marginalized groups and high trafficking areas. The children shown below are currently living in the Children’s Home, teaching them God’s Word, showing them God’s unconditional love, and being cared for full-time by house parents and a live-in tutor as well.
Cap-Haitien Children's Home
Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western hemisphere, and Cap-Haitien is one of the poorest cities in Haiti, so you can imagine the devastation. The UN recently reported that 1,000 children a day are becoming homeless by being dropped off on the streets, churches, hospitals, and schools. Parents abandon their children in Haiti for many reasons, but poverty is one of the highest. We are blessed to support a Christian children’s home and Christian school connected to Calvary Chapel Cap-Haitien. Currently, there are 21 children in the house with a few caretakers and home parents, Pastor Leo and his wife, Sandra. These children are receiving love, education, shelter, food, and most importantly, the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Also, they attend Calvary Christian School, where Leo is the overseeing Pastor.
“I came to Haiti after a fight to help with a medical outreach and the Lord took a piece of my heart and placed it in Haiti. I will have children, grandchildren, and God willing great grand children, but Haiti will always be my first love.” – Beneil Dariush (Sponsor & UFC Fighter)
