|Knowing this Mamie Yol (Yolanda)
as she is affectionately called by the girls she has adopted,
after retiring, left New York and returned to Haiti to reach
out with the resources God had given her to help underprivileged
||Seen here with Jenny Tryhane, Founder
of United Caribbean Trust helping with the Make
Jesus Smile shoebox distribution Christmas 2007.
She took her total life savings
and invested it in building a beautiful facility/compound
for raising orphans and bought a small garment business which
she runs to provide daily sustenance for the children.
Unfortunately, the garment business was recently
destroyed by the political unrest in the country. UCT is researching
the possibility of reestablishing this sewing ministry to generate
revenue for the orphanage.
United Missions is
partnering with Foundation Yolanda Thervil in Bon Repos The orphanage
has approximately 40 girls who live there now and has a new community
school that has been meeting for the last few years. This facility
serves as a refuge not only for the girls in the orphanage but also
for the people of the community who are members of a beautiful sanctuary
that is built on the campus.
United Caribbean Trust is delighted to be partnering with
this organization and we are seeking sponsorship to try and
get all the help we can to bring the facility up to full capacity.
This is an opportunity for someone(s) to do
ministry with the Haitian people with no need to learn to
speak Creole. Mamie Yol is fluid in both English and Creole
and is capable of translating for those who wish to speak
to the children.
What they need are some visitors to love on the
children and a small amount of financial support to maintain and
grow their ministry. This facility is a good place for a Christian
group to go in and do a VBS and/or some building of school furniture.
God has put this ministry on
my heart to search for a loving congregation who might want
to make a journey with me over to visit and support their
Mission House provides excellent accommodation for 12
Support needs consist of Biblical teaching materials,
school materials, girl’s items and financial support for food
and paying the orphanage school & staff a small stipend.
