“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” - Ephesians 4:2-6
As we stand up for justice, we pray for unity among every nation. We fight to give opportunity to those with little, call out injustices, and be the voice for the oppressed. Spreading love means spreading Jesus, that is at the forefront of all we do. 💕 ... See MoreSee Less

Today is Mother’s Day in Haiti! We honor all Haitian mothers who have sacrificed more than we could imagine for their children and families. They represent resilience, love, and dedication, and fight to provide for their families. They work sun-up until sun-down cooking, cleaning, caring for their children, transporting water to their homes, and selling products on the street to help put food on the table.
Matina, one of our Zel seamstresses, is pictured with her 3 children. Matina had to stop going to school at an early age because her parents could not afford to pay. She is overjoyed to have a steady job so that she can pay for her children to finish school and give them opportunities that she never had. She is a model of what we are about at C4C - no matter where a person lives and what their skin color is, they deserve to be deeply valued and given equal opportunity.
450 pounds of seeds, including squash, beets, cabbage, and melon have arrived in Haiti! 🙌🏿 These seeds are being distributed to our agriculture program in our remote village of Massikot where 50 of the poorest families are being impacted. We will also use these seeds to grow more vegetables in our Kenscoff garden to feed the kids at our crèche.
A huge thank you to Danny Fernandez and U.S. Agriseeds (VoloAgri) for your incredibly generous donation. With food being harder to come by and more expensive, growing food in our remote communities is a major blessing! ... See MoreSee Less
Timeline PhotosMeet Jerry - he is the newest “addition” to the Zel Haiti team and the youngest of 4 kids. Jerry was born after his mom, Matina, had worked for Zel for 3.5 years. When Matina began working for us, she was malnourished along with her 3 other kids and was struggling to be able to put them in school. Matina never reached middle school herself and had one simple dream for her kids: she wanted to see them go further than she did. Since being employed at Zel, she was able to officially get married, get her whole family to healthy weights and add sweet little Jerry. Jerry has a very different future ahead of him than his mom did because she has a job and can afford to put him in school. Your purchase of face masks helps us to continue to employ moms like Matina and provide a different future for little ones like Jerry. There’s only 3 days left to buy masks to help us reach our goal of 1,200 and we are still 106 masks short! The link to buy is in the comments. • • • • • ... See MoreSee Less

On this World Hunger Day, the World Food Programme announces that “Haiti has the highest rates of childhood malnutrition in the western hemisphere, and nearly four million people – more than one in three Haitians – are estimated to be in need of urgent food assistance.” The number of starving children in Haiti grows daily as food becomes more expensive and harder to come by.
“During an infectious disease outbreak, like COVID-19, malnutrition rates can increase sharply, leading to higher mortality rates due to compromised immune systems.”
Partner with us in feeding thousands of kids across Haiti. They need us more than ever during this unprecedented time.
