Story of One: Bonifast, Haiti

When the large metal gate opens to a Convoy of Hope-sponsored orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, children rush to greet visiting Convoy of Hope staff. One particular little boy makes his way to the front of the group and cracks a smile when he recognizes the group.

Bonifast has come a long way in the last year and a half. When Convoy of Hope staff first met Bonifast, he was covered in his own waste and was severely malnourished. Haiti was still in immediate recovery mode after the 2010 earthquake and Bonifast seemed to be falling through the cracks.

But after being taken care of by an orphanage where Convoy of Hope provides food, Bonifast is healthy, happy and now has a future ahead of him.

“It’s because of our many supporters that we’re able to report on the progress Bonifast has made and we are extremely grateful for that,” says Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope. “We hope to continue to be able to provide for Bonifast and children just like him around the world.”

Convoy of Hope begins construction on ninth home in Joplin, Mo.

Convoy of Hope recently broke ground on the ninth disaster-resistant, energy-efficient home for tornado survivors in Joplin, Mo. Since breaking ground on the first home in February 2012, eight families have gotten a new start through Convoy of Hope.

“This project would not have been possible if it weren’t for the generous supporters and partners of Convoy of Hope,” says Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope. “As we approach the second anniversary of this storm, we continue to focus on bringing hope to families who have faced seemingly insurmountable odds.”

Additional home builds are expected to follow in the coming months.

Partners for the project include Adam Brady Construction, Alpha Title LLC, Project Safe Home, T.F. Concrete Forming Systems and Joyce Meyer Ministries—Hand of Hope.

The new high-tech, low-energy homes are specially designed with reinforced concrete walls and other innovations to be sturdier and more sustainable than traditional houses.

Total construction costs to date for the project have topped $1 million.

The damage from last week’s deadly tornadoes is immense but Convoy of Hope is there; coordinating volunteers for mobile distributions to hard-hit neighborhoods and resourcing local partners to reach more people.

“I’m amazed at the community effort, and everybody that’s coming in to help,” says Karen Berry, a resident of Pleasant Grove, Ala. “We’re so appreciative to Convoy of Hope for what they’ve done for our community.”

Without our faithful partners, this response would not have been possible. Will you partner with Convoy of Hope to help us continue to respond to disasters like these devastating storms with life-saving supplies?
