Kenbe Fem - Orphanage in Haiti
The cost to properly care for each child in the home is $300 a month. This provides three meals a day, clothing, medical care, and school tuition. Life in Haiti is difficult and labor intensive. All clothes are washed by hand and meals are prepared from scratch in a minimal kitchen. The city electricity is on from 3:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m. each day. For the remainder of the day, when electricity is needed, it is provided by a generator, which requires the purchase of fuel to operate. School in Haiti is not free. Children who attend must pay tuition and provide their own uniforms and supplies. Transportation to school is provided by Kenbe Fem. Vehicles, fuel, and upkeep in Haiti are very expensive. Rest assured, not one penny of your donation to Kenbe Fem is wasted.

If you find it within your heart and have the ability to fully sponsor a child at $300 a month, thank you! However, any amount you give will help, whether a one-time donation or a recurring monthly donation. Thank you for considering sponsoring a child. By doing so, you will change a life.
