Seeking National Media Attention

October 17, 2011

Since beginning our partnership with our sister church in Carrefour, Haiti, we have also spent time at the Son of God Orphanage. From the beginning, we were deeply concerned about the condition of the children at the orphanage. Each JCC team that has spent time in Haiti has also spent time trying to help at the orphanage. It is truly a horrible place, and many attempts have been made to get the children out and to a safer place…with no results.

Several others have taken up the cause and we are attempting to get our national media to shine a spotlight on the orphanage to put pressure on the government to act. So what can we do? Here are some ideas:

  • Spread the word! Use Facebook, Twitter, email to let people know what is happening
  • Sign the petition at  Petition
  • Know anyone in the media? Get them involved!

Here is the story of one person on the ground in Haiti trying to help: http://blessedwithaburden.wordpress.com

We can do this if we work together.
