HORT’s Orphan Response in Haiti

Our friends over at World Orphans, who helped start the Haiti Orphan Relief Team (HORT), have launched a new initiative called OVC – Orphan and Vulnerable Child program – to strengthen the Haitian indigenous churches’ role in helping to care for orphans in their country. One of the greatest aspects of World Orphans is their philosophy of going through the local churches to respond to crises.  Local churches know their community, live in the community and have the best means to effectively respond to events in their community.

Take a look at their recent uploaded video talking about the new initiative.

HORT and World Orphans are looking for 24 churches to join the initiative and support 24 Haitian churches through their OVC program.  If you feel your church is in a place to be a part of this movement, register at HORT’s site.
