Wedlemson (11 years) is a boy of our fostership programme. His actual fosterfather had to cancel his support for him to his regret. Wedlemson ist a good student and goes to a good school. His father Is sick, but he does his best to maintain his family of seven members in spite of all unfavourable circumstances. The fostership is a big aid to be able to pay the school fees. Please help so that the good support of Wedlemson can continue and he can reach a good school leaving qualification and help his family himself through a profession one day.

In a tireless and heroic effort Kurt Lauck, Manfred Zapp and Johannes Härle were able to install the solar equipment during a two weeks non-stop effort.
After the container with the solar equipment was transported by ship beginning march and after it arrived in Cap Haitian/Haiti on 6 April, Dieufort Wittmer could get it out of the customs (manage all documents) in a record time of few days only with full commitment.
Now, almost all houses have permanent current. What a big alleviation and joy.
We do thank all those who contributed to this, that it could be realized: many, many thanks!
A tragical accident happened on Sunday morning, 12th March 2017 in Mapou, a suburb of Gonaives. A fully occupied coach dashed in an unlit Rara group. 38 people died.
The partner of one of our laundry women (Jesula) is among the victims. He only picked up a Rara mate with his motorcycle , was seized by the coach and died still at the scene of the accident. Our condolence is aimed at all families of the 38 victims, our sympathy for the 13 injured people, the passengers of the coach and the driver.
All other co-workers here and our volunteers are unscathed. Thanks to God!
Once again, an eventful year is coming to a close. We wish you all a peaceful and contemplative holiday season and a successful and wonderful New Year!
The employees of the Lebensmission in Germany, Switzerland and Haiti!

The following foster children lose their sponsorship as their foster mother had to move to a nursing home and was obliged to cancel her payments (donations). All children have already started their school career. Should they now be deprived of all their hope for a better future because of ending or terminating their sponsorship? It had begun so nicely and suddenly they are all left without support and do not know how to go on.
Thus, we urgently seek foster parents who would be ready to take over the sponsorship for one child or several children and finance their education up to finishing school or a training. Who helps?
If interested or for further inquiries/information please contact the office of Lebensmission e.V., “Jesus für Haiti”, Ahornstr. 19, 76929 Landau, tel. no. +49 – (0)6341/ 82331, E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hurricane Matthew, 4 Oct. 2016
Since Monday it’s raining and Walner Michaud, the director of the orphanage, set all co-workers free for 2 days. So far, there is no storm yet, but the canals are all full and if it starts to rain heavily everything is in danger of flooding. Already now the streets are muddy and sludge and there’s no current since Monday.
In the south of the country there are heavy rains and many victims, it is hoped the hurricane will move in direction of Jamaica and not decide for the north of Haiti. The internet speaks of 1 or 2 dead people due to the storm. There will certainly be more. Martina Wittmer tells of corrugated iron huts that collapse from landslides and houses flooded. The people get pneumonia because they are completely wet. In particular babies, children, old and sick people have big problems. In the orphanage there is the luxury of stable houses. Martina says in comparison to outside they are safe and well.
