In Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world, children face numerous challenges that threaten their daily survival and ability to grow, including hunger, homelessness, violence and disease.

The need is great, but Susie Krabacher isn’t one to balk at a challenge. When Susie first saw the suffering of children in Haiti, she vowed to do everything she could to help.

Today, Susie’s organization, Mercy & Sharing, provides vital aid to thousands of children every year, from life-saving medical care and nutritious meals, to shelter from the streets and a quality education.

How Your Funding is Changing Children’s Lives

Last year, we honored Susie with our 2013 Alumni Award and provided Mercy & Sharing with $50,000 in funding. So far, Susie has used the first portion of her grant to:

  1. Ensure 126 abandoned, orphaned and disabled children have 24/7 shelter, food, medical aid, access to an education, and loving care.
  2. Educate 1,200 children at three schools in Haiti.
  3. Feed 900 children and their families in villages suffering from severe drought and devastated crops.
  4. Provide 5,000 children and their communities with access to clean water, through two wells at the John Branchizio School and Mercy & Sharing Village.

Thank you for answering a child’s call for help. Meet some of the children who are now on their way to a healthier, happier life, thanks to you:
