  • One Gift, One Child

    Most children in “Orphanages” in Haiti are not orphans, and are subject to institutionalized abuse, including sexual abuse. Pierre Charlotin is a Haitian who became Alec’s friend while they lived in Madison, Wisconsin. He and his wife Natalie are devoting their career to the orphans of Haiti, not by building another orphanage, but by supporting families so that children are not abandoned to orphanages, providing supplies for orphans and orphanages, and building relationships and bringing accountability to the Haitian orphanage directors. Their goal is to make every orphanage a safe environment for the children, protected from physical and sexual abuse, trafficking and slavery.

Her family sponsored vaccination and education for his younger siblings.
