Welcome and thank you so much for visiting our page!

HELO is a nonprofit corporation (501c3 certified) that supports an orphanage outside of Les Cayes, Haiti.  HELO is what we strive to provide to the orphaned and abandoned children in our care -- Home, Education, Love and Opportunity.  

HELO aims to provide the children with a loving environment where they can learn to read, write and then learn a trade. We currently have three homes, housing 53 children, provide quality education for more than 80 children as well as a community garden, soccer field, computer center and much more.

HELO needs a vehicle to transport children to the doctor (we don't think motorcycles are safe, especially for children), to get water, and many other errands.  We currently have one motorcycle, which is not sufficient for the staff and children in our three homes.  

A vehicle will also allow for more "field trips" so our children can enjoy more educational programs at the local botanical gardens and even visit the library in les Cayes! We hope this vehicle will open the door to more opportunities for these beautiful children and provide us with a reliable way to get them the help they may need in an emergent situation. Will you help?  

For more information on HELO please visit www.HeloHaiti.org or visit HELO's Facebook Page, Twitter or Instagram.

All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.

This is Abraham. He has epilepsy. Before we found the proper treatment and medication for Abraham, he suffered from petite mal and grand mal seizures, which often left him weak and disorientated. Imagine how difficult it was for his house parents to take him to the hospital on a motorcycle after a seizure. Abraham is doing much better now, but a vehicle at HELO will ensure that Abraham will never be forced to ride on a motorcycle again. Please help us reach our goal.

We're getting a tax refund and would like part of it to be used for a HeloHaiti vehicle. We hope we'll have more for you in August for John's birthday.
