Habitat For Children Ministries, Inc. recently embarked on a new project in La Jeune, Haiti. The Habitat Care Center had a grand opening ceremony on Wednesday August 27, 2019. The Habitat Care Center is a bible study feeding program currently serving 13 youth ages 4 to 11. The majority of the youth are orphans as they have lost a parent over the years. The other youth have desolated living conditions and the parents cannot afford to adequately care for them. Five local pastors rotate sharing the Good News of the gospel with the youth after school 3 times a week and then fellowship with a hot meal. HFCM knows that many youth go without a hearty meal for days and even weeks. An empty stomach stuns the growth process and makes school concentration difficult. Feeding the youth with the word of God and a nutritious meal will allow them to become good Christians and improve their health and well-being.
