S.o.S. has committed to raise $10,000 for the drilling of 2 new water wells - one for the orphanage and one near the orphanage gate as a goodwill and prevenative health measure to the surrounding community as their drinking sources are also contaminated, causing much sickness.
Aside from financial donations for the wells, we are also requesting donations of MULTI-VITAMINS for adults and children that we can send in the container. Since these items are very heavy, we would like to send them in advance for our next trip there in January 2010. There will be a donation bin in the lobby.
We took 25,000 vitamins to Haiti on the last trip and ran out. Vitamins are very effective in improving the nutritional deficiencies that cause so many illnesses - this one item can make a huge impact on a person's nutritional health as we have seen over and over again!
Ways to donate towards the Haiti project:
- New Hope tithe envelope (specify "S.o.S. HAITI")
- Make a "DROP IN THE BUCKET" in New Hope's children's Sabbath School classes and kids church during offering time
- Donate through online giving at lookingforachurch.org
- Mail a check to New Hope at 12350 Hall Shop Rd., Fulton MD 20759.
THANK YOU for caring about the kids at Eden Garden Orphanage and the people of Haiti! These new water wells will make a HUGE impact on their overall health and well-being!

The needed treatment only cost about $5 for the anti-fungal cream and anti-parasite pill, but his family could not afford the doctor’s visit and prescription. We administered the pill, rubbed the cream on his head and visited his mother to give her the medication so that she could continue treating Bernardo. By the end of our trip, the medicine had already begun to take effect and there was a noticeable change in Bernardo’s disposition, as the other children seemed to be more accepting of him. We saw him smile!
(Bernardo is pictured here with one of the New Hope Mahotas Adventist School teachers during the Jacobs' recent visit to Mahotas, they brought another batch of medicine for Bernardo's head which is healing up nicely!)

Be sure to see the bulletin board display upstairs in the childrens wing at New Hope for pictures, brochures and info on the "Birthday Club" option where you can give a birthday offering in someone's honor that will help send a child to school in Mozambique.

Kids decorated their shoeboxes with wrapping paper in Sabbath School classes or kids church and then took them home to fill with gifts. About 65 shoeboxes were filled and brought back in, then delivered to a drop-off center where they were be put on planes and taken to poor villages all over the world for a big Christmas party!

This Saturday, bring your completed shoeboxes in with the $7 shipping donation and form inside the box, and the age bracket label on the outside. Both of these items were in the brochure but can also be downloaded from this website (see right sidebar).
If you didn't get the coloring page letter we passed out, this is on the website too. It's an opportunity for your child to tell about themselves and where they live, and might help them connect with the idea that these boxes are going to far away places that are different from home. It also has a section that lets your kids share what they love about Jesus!
Thank you for your participation in this project which will help make needy children around the world SMILE this Christmas!

We will also be accepting donations of school supplies for the New Hope Mahotas school we helped build, as well as gently used clothing, shoes and toys to fill in any extra space we have leftover in the container. These poor children will LOVE to have the clothes your kids have outgrown and were planning to give away.

The process is simple!
3) FILL THE BOX with toys, school supplies, toiletries, etc., appropriate for the sex and age bracket you have chosen. Kids, choosing a child the same age as you will make it easier for you to shop for them since they may share the same interests and needs as you. Use the gift ideas provided on this page. You should also include a note or card to the child, you can tell them about yourself, where you live and even include a picture if you like. See coloring page available to download on this page. Label the box with the appropriate boy/girl label, mark the correct age category on the label, and tape the label to the top of your box. The label is available
on the right sidebar of this page and in the brochure we will hand out at church.
