Building a Home for the Bernard FamilyMay 10th, 2022

In August 2021, a massive earthquake hit Haiti destroying thousands of homes and affecting families like that of John and his wife, Angel. Together, with their four children, John and Angel are currently living in a temporary shelter in Haiti. But through TTF’s ministry partners, Hands & Feet Project, John and Angel’s family has been given hope and will soon have a place that they will call home.
Here’s an update shared by Hands & Feet Project:
John and Angel provide income for their household primarily through farming. John is a rice planter and Angel sells the rice once it's harvested. Three of their children are in school (ages 4, 8, and 15), while their youngest child (age 2) stays at home. While John and Angel make enough money to cover living and schooling expenses for their family, they also did without in their daily lives: they did not have an indoor bathroom and all of their meals were cooked over a fire outdoors.
When the earthquake hit, the Bernard family's three-room block house, covered by metal sheets, was destroyed, along with all the furniture and appliances inside the house.
Because of your generosity alongside other organizations, Hands & Feet Project committed to fund the cost of what it would take to rebuild 11 homes across this community, including the Bernard family.
Through your partnership, the foundation of the Bernard’s new home is finally complete. They will soon move out of their temporary shelter to their newly built home.
We are so grateful for your support in bringing Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. Your prayers and generous gifts have allowed us to partner with organizations around the world who are making a difference in their lives one day at a time.
