Heart for Haiti

Heart for Haiti Foundation, Bon Repos, Port au Prince Haiti - The Children's Village

Heart for Haiti was founded in December of 1981 by Dutchman Johan Smoorenburg, a missionary of 36 years. He started his work on the island Martinique. After 10 years there, he left Martinique and went to Haiti with his wife and two children with a vision to do something for young people.

Johan Smoorenburg received this vision when he took a trip to the island two years before. He visited an orphanage resembling more of a pigsty than it did a home. There were more than 50 small children—all of them malnourished and sleeping on the floor.

Johan Smoorenburg started a work on faith and God began doing wonders. With support from the Netherlands, he realized his dream to build a children’s village. His goal was to allow underprivileged children to receive good care and education.

Heart for Haiti in Bon Repos also has a church, linked with the church in Martinique where Johan Smoorenburg worked for ten years as an evangelist at the beginning of his career as a missionary.

Little by little, the village started to grow; and, in August 1983, the first 40 children came to live there. Many of the children had been abandoned at birth and came straight from the hospital.

Over the course of many years, some hundreds of children were given a chance at a successful life.
