Fostering Family Unity in Haiti

March 30, 2024 E-Newsletter



As we approach Easter Sunday, we pray that your Easter is filled with family, friends and faithful reflection on scripture like 1 Peter 1:13 - “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” Thank you, Jesus! 


Amid the challenges we face in Haiti, we find strength in the promises of Romans 8:18-25, which tells us our present suffering pales in comparison to the glory that awaits. The whole creation eagerly anticipates enduring hardship with the hope of ultimate redemption and freedom. That’s the hope we have in the expression of Haiti Love! Even as Haiti groans in pain, there is hope and promise in God’s plan for his creation through the work of people like you and me.


And Haiti is certainly experiencing trials and tribulations that most of us can’t fathom. That’s why we are so grateful for your perseverance and persistence in generously supporting Overture and our friends in southern Haiti!


Thank you and God bless you as we walk through this Easter season filled with faith, hope and love - Haiti Love!!



Fostering Family Unity


As we continue to highlight each of our major milestones from our 2023 Annual Report, this week, we are reporting on the safety and well-being of the children in southern Haiti, which is at the top of Overture’s priority list. Click here if you missed our last email.


We reported in our Annual Report the good news that ALL of the children reunified with their families from the ESPWA orphanage remain together and are moving toward independence and self-reliance. In 2023, we began the reunification process with 63 children and we are happy to report that 37 of these children are now living in the safety of their own families or with qualified foster families! There were some very special placements among these 37 children, 6 of the children have special needs and required very special families. Click here to read more about these special placements.


We are continuing our unwavering commitment to removing children from orphanages and other harmful environments. Early this month, we reported to you about the closure of an orphanage that resulted in Overture receiving 55 children into our crisis care. Over the last few weeks, 34 of these children have been reunified with their families.


This work is more important than ever as the country continues to devolve into chaos and turmoil, causing many orphanages to cease operations, leaving the children in their care vulnerable to serious exploitation and risk. We are continuing to support Haiti’s Child Welfare Agency (IBESR) in providing crisis care and family reunification support as new cases are increasing. 


You can read more about our crisis care, reunification, and foster care initiatives in our most recent blog post:



But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

— 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
