Run With Me!
I set off to run for 40 hours for the children at Maison Fortune Orphanage, located in Hinche Haiti. I am asking for your support by running with me virtually! Run for 4 miles, 40 minutes or 40 hours – but whatever you do, just run.
About The GLOW RUN
Let Make A Differnce Together!
Saturday, November 7th I will set out to begin my journey for 40 hours straight, ending on Sunday, November 8th The significance of the 40 hours is celebrating the 20 year anniversary of Maison Fortune Orphanage and the additional 20 is running for the 20+ years of prosperity and love for the orphanage.
I am one person, I know together we can move mountains and assist the developmental and education these boys and girls will have as they become future leaders of Haiti. .
ABOUT MAISON FORTUNE ORPHANAGE.
Today we serve 156 boys and 85 girls in residence and another 150 children attend the primary school each day and are provided lunch. Each day our all-Haitian staff serves over 700 meals and washes countless loads of laundry– all with love and care.ot all of our children are orphaned but they are identified as having little to no opportunity for education and often are from a single-parent home with no resources.
Every child at the orphanage attends school and many also participate in sports, scouts, or other extra-curricular activities. When a child is referred to as we work to find out the story of how they came to be with us to make sure we are the best option to meet their needs. When they are accepted to our family, MFO becomes their legal guardian.
MFO is registered with the Haitian Authority that oversees Orphanages on the national level, the agency is called Institut du Bien-Etre Social et de Recherches, or IBESR.
Since 2002 the MFO Foundation has provided support to the Maison Fortuné Orphanage and is a 501(c) (3) IRS-approved charity. The Foundation is committed to the long-term viability of the orphanage through financial support, outreach to the public, encouraging visits, promoting child-sponsorship, and sharing information about the orphanage.
