Donation Provides Haitian Orphans a Safe Place to Live and Learn

A transition home in Haiti will provide housing and skill development for impoverished and disadvantaged children in Haiti.


In 2014, doTERRA Wellness Advocate Sarah White felt inspired to get involved with a local food bank by planting an organic garden and donating the vegetables to the cause. As Sarah began her work in this area and became affiliated with the individuals running the program, she was made aware of another project by the same individuals to build an orphanage in Haiti. 

The orphanage will house 17 Haitian orphans that are currently living in a two-bedroom home with the pastor caretaker and his family, and an additional 33 orphans. Because of lack of resources, the pastor and his family often run out of food, propane gas for the stove, and charcoal for cooking to provide for his wife and 4 children, as well as the 17 orphans. Sarah had been fundraising to support these orphans since she became affiliated with the project in 2014, but teamed up with doTERRA leader Hayley Hobson and the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ in 2016 to purchase some land in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti to build an orphanage. 

As part of a matching contribution campaign with the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, Sarah and Hayley spent much of 2016 and 2017 hard at work raising money for a significant contribution toward the purchasing of land and building of this orphanage. A donation by the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation and funds raised through the matching campaign will be used for purchasing construction and building materials for the orphanage, drilling a well and septic tank for the facility, installing electricity, purchasing furniture, and purchasing and installing air conditioning units and appliances. 

Blessing the Children Ministry Orphanage was organized in 2011 and has been striving ever since to provide impoverished and disadvantaged children in Haiti a safe place to live with the end goal of providing the orphans there a better quality of life.
