La Fondation des Foyers Angèle was formed in 2004 to help support an orphanage in Gonaives, Haiti. In 2011, following a succession of hurricanes, an earthquake and a cholera epidemic, most of the children were taken back to their home community to live with extended families.
La Fondation now provides each family with a monthly amount for food and clothing, pays for the education of all the children in the families, and continues to help the remaining children at the orphanage. We rely on the generosity of donors to be able to continue to help provide these children with the necessities of life: food, shelter, and education.
Your help is much needed and much appreciated.
La Fondation des Foyers Angèle is a registered charitable organization overseen by a Board of Directors. The Fondation reunites people who are committed to raise funds to help children around the world and the orphanages and communities who welcome them.

WHY THE NAME "ANGÈLE" ?
We were invited to visit the orphanage in Gonaïves, Haïti, to meet the forty children who were welcomed after the floods. We held in our arms the youngest child Angèle who at the time was very sick.
When we returned, we learn with deep sadness of her death.
In her memory, we have weaved her name and spirit in the foundation’s name!
SIMPLICITY - SOLIDARITY
We are citizens of a world community. If we take the time to compare our lives to those of children in the Third World, it could lead us to:
•live more simply so others may simply live; share with these children and their caregivers so that they can obtain water, food, clothes, schooling, health care, homes in an orphanage or with a family, and a peaceful community.
•Do share with the children of Haïti. In so doing, you proclaim their value!
