Open Doorways Orphanage board of directors would like to thank all of the local residents who have expressed their concerns about our orphanage in Haiti this hurricane season. Thankfully, no hurricane has affected the orphanage to date. Our supervisor in Haiti has reported that they experienced some heavy rain earlier when Irma passed by but there was no damage to the region.

Fundraising events such as this help us to raise money to meet our operating budget of approx. $3,000 USD per month.  With the decline of the Canadian dollar over the past year, a significant strain has been put on ODO resources.  We would like to establish and maintain a regular donor base to ensure the stability of cash flow, fund a vehicle purchase and any future education costs for the children.  We would like to encourage you to become a dedicated monthly donor so we can continue to provide for the children so they can have a bright and stable future.  For ease of making monthly or one-time donations we have set up automatic banking withdrawals.  Please see the attached link below to fill out a donation form.  It can be returned to ODO via email or mail.

The Rt. Hon Edward Schreyer

I write in support of a cause of crying need and undeniable merit. Sharon Dugard seeks to build an orphanage to finally give a home to young people. In childhood, without a home, there is no hope. They have no chance to learn how to earn a livelihood either. If Sharon succeeds, many youngsters' lives will change from despair to normal hope. As one who supports Habitat for Humanity because of the hope it brings to young families, I find it compelling to support this effort on behalf of homeless children.
