Gertrude’s Orphanage serves children with disabilities and abandoned children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Founded by Sister Gertrude Bien-Aimee in 1993, the orphanage encourages volunteers to travel to Haiti and donate a week of service, assisting in such activities as:
Light physical therapy for special-needs children
Summer camp, prayer services, structured games, dance/music programs, science experiments
Cooking and knitting
Preparing videos, pictures and drawings for the children’s sponsors
On-site maintenance work
During our 2017 mission trip to Haiti, our team built a therapy bed, installed a basketball backboard with a net, and deep-cleaned the orphanage’s therapy room.
