About Fermathe Children's Home
About two hours inland from Port-au-Prince and a long drive up the mountain, lies Fermathe, a more affluent area and a beautiful site in Haiti full of lush green trees and overlooking a valley of coffee plantations.
The Fermathe Home property was given to Connect 2 Ministries to house homeless children. The home oversees about 90 children where they participate in school and have space to play.
About Regency Children's Home
The Regency Home is located in the out skirts of Port-au-Prince, in Onaville. This town that was originally intended to be a community for government employees to live out their retirement in comfort. However, after many people were left homeless after the earthquakes, the government bussed them to Onaville and left them there.
The Regency Children’s Home was sponsored by Regency Lighting and built by teams of employees from Regency Lighting and some of the company’s partners. The orphanage is made up of 8 dorms, and each dorm has a “house mom” who oversees 8-10 children. The Regency Home includes a government-recognizes school and the children wear uniforms when they attend. The property includes: a covered patio, library and game room, swing sets, and yard space to play sports.
The Regency Home is a 15-minute walk from the Connect 2 Ministries headquarters, where the children attend Sunday School each week.
The first child was accepted in January of 2017, and since has grown to around 80 children ranging in ages 5-17. All of these children have been rescued from slave trafficking.
There are more dorms currently under construction so that the boys and girls can be separated, and the intake of children can be doubled. This project should be completed and ready for new children in January 2019.
