Hand in Hand Soap and My Neighbor's Children celebrated with over 2,000 children in Haiti as we marked the distribution of over 1 million bars of soap to the children of Haiti through October of last year. As part of the celebration, children were given a new bar of soap, colored markers, and a delicious meal. The festivities included some singing by several children, poetry from memory, and a couple of peeches by some very gifted kids! A special thank you for our hosts at Grace International Orphanage and school and to the 20 cooks who stayed up all night to cook the food to have it ready!
Hand in Hand continues to make a difference in the lives of these very special children. Thank you Hand in Hand for caring!!!!!
A team from New Hope Church joined My Neighbor's Children at New Life in Cazeau, Bon Samaritan and Ryan Epps in Croix Des Bouquets, Bethany School in Cayes Jacmel and helped provide special meals for the kids. It is hard to tell who is happier, the kids or the team members!
This team will return again this spring to do some very important work at a couple of facilities as a part of continuing to improve the quality of care these awesome kids get.
A Very Special Thank You To New Hope!!!
My Neighbor's Children is excited and proud to present "OPERATION SUNSHINE". We are built around three objectives: provide basic living needs, provide a basic education, and provide basic medical care for the children we serve and care for. OPERATION SUNSHINE will assure that the basic medical needs will be met in Haiti for 2,000 children, starting in the first phase with 500 children.
This joint effort between Florida Hospital, My Neighbor's Children, and the Haiti Adventiste Hospital in Carrefour will provide coverage at no cost to the chidren or the facility where they live. Costs for care will be billed and presented for payment to Florida Hospital Global Mission Initiatives. This will allow a tightly budgeted hospital in Haiti to provide quality of care without having to bear the expense.
If you wish to contribute toward the medical fund that has been established, please contact our OPERATION SUNSHINE Director Cayla Jones (at email@example.com) for information on where to send your contribution to Florida Hospital.
Please watch the video below to learn more.
Our team led by NCH Honduras Directors Sandra and Roland Funez, returned safely after distributing needed supplies, clothing, school bookbags, and NCH Meals to dozens of children and their families in San Pedro Sula. This very poor community came out in large numbers and expressed tremendous gratitude to know that they are cared about. Sandra said, "It was so good to show God's love from our hearts to theirs".
Thank you Sandra and Roland for your compassion and leadership!
Shepard Exposition Services of Orlando, once again demonstrated their commitment to giving back and doing good through their services provided, networking, and Annual Thanks and Giving Event. Packing 20,000 meals to help hungry children go to bed with a full stomach.
MNC is so grateful for our amazing partners at Shepard in Orlando and around the country!!!! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!
Onaville, a community of 30,000 displaced people who are trying to rebuild their lives, has no infrastructure for water, roads, or electricity. Families who were displaced by the earthquake in Haiti and who relocated to "start over" can find comfort only in the gift of a piece of land. Some people within the community must walk up to three miles to get a 5 gallon bucket filled with water.
Last weekend, My Neighbor's Children installed a new well (the only one in the community) on a church's land that assure water to all who come. The well can provide water every day for as many as 300 families.
The well was sponsored by our corporate partner Hand in Hand Soap as a part of their committed mission to give from every product sold through their company. Owners Bill and Courtney were on hand to celebrate with William Lowry as the well was turned on.
Our goal is to place at least 6 more wells in this community. If you are interested in helping, email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ruby Hutchins heard about our goal to provide 1200 dresses for girls in MNC facilities. She immediately became a part of the MNC Team and started the "Ruby Dress Project". Going strong at 76 years old, she is spearheading a team of "dressmakers" who have already amassed over 900 dresses.
Last month, our MNC/NCH Team was able to distribute over 600 of these dresses to the children of Haiti. The children were so grateful. We received so many gracious expressions of gratitude.
We want to express our gratitude to all who are a part of this Project Team and especially to RUBY - one of our Champions for Children!
