Over 300,000 people lost their lives. There are 1,500,000 homeless living in the tent cities with out food and water. Thousands of children have lost their parents due to the January 12, 2010 Earth Quake. Many people have come to live in our Haitian Mission-Chiropractic Clinic. We have decided to open the first Chiropractic Orphanage.
Here is a description of our orphanage.
Children who have been abandoned or orphaned come to our Mission Life Home where they are integrated into a loving family environment. They are nurtured and supported by Alex. Alex is the home’s dad Presently there are 20 other children in the Mission Life home who become their brothers and sisters. Alex’s’s own brothers and sisters live in the home along with their two cousins. Strong bonds develop within the Mission Life family, and even after the children are grown and leave Mission Life, these family relationships endure.
While growing up, the children have the benefit of a stable, loving family environment that includes the necessities of life such as clothing, meals, chiropractic health care and a high-quality education. Children remain in the Mission Life home within until they are prepared to create lives for themselves as independent adults.
The Mission Life home does not operate independently of their environment. The Mission Life Home is a role model for the community in terms of quality care-giving, education, and chiropractic health care and aims to be fully integrated into the larger community – not isolated from it.
The Mission of the World Chiropractic Alliance and Mission Life Home is as follows:
- To build families for children in need
- To help children shape their own futures
- To share in the development of communities
- To embrace vitalistic philosophy
We build families for children in need:
We work for children who are orphaned, abandoned or whose families are unable to care for them. We give these children the opportunity to build lasting relationships within the Mission Life family.
Our family approach in the World Chiropractic Alliance and Mission Life Home is based on four principles:
1) Each child needs a father and mother,
2) Each child grows up most naturally with brothers and sisters,
3) Each child grows up in their own house, and
4) Each child grows up within a supportive home environment.
5) Each child has a strong vitalistic education taught by chiropractors.
We help children shape their own futures
We enable children to live according to their own culture and religion, and to be active members of the community. We also want them to know how to speak other languages so that they can embrace other cultures.
We help children to recognize and express their individual abilities, interests and talents.
We ensure that children receive the education and skills training they need to be successful and contributing members of society.
We share in the development of communities
We share in community life and respond to the social development needs of society’s most vulnerable children and young people.
We establish facilities and programs that aim to strengthen families and prevent the abandonment of children.
We join hands with community members to provide education and chiropractic health care, and teach vitalistic principles.
Mission Life International is an independent social development organization with 501(c)3 tax exempt status and is endorsed and affiliated with the World Chiropractic Alliance. All funds donated to Mission Life International are tax deductible for US citizens. We offer children a place to call home and space to heal. By keeping brothers and sisters together, with a full time professional foster parent in an individual home, we rebuild a loving family life.
Mission Life homes are a positive environment designed to help children reach their full potential. But the real strength of the home lies in the collective power of foster parents, staff, and the surrounding community to help children find new hope and trust. With a stable home, caring siblings, and a loving foster parent, the children can have happy childhoods and grow into caring, responsible, self-supporting adults.
Our calling is to provide a safe, healthy, clean and loving environment for orphaned children until they are adopted by sincere and dedicated parents, our ultimate goal being to arrange for their adoption as quickly as possible. It is our determination that 100% of all donations shall go into construction and related costs of building and supporting this new orphanage. Volunteer labor often has been offered and shall be utilized to the fullest extent possible. We welcome contributions from all sources, large or small. We consider all donations as “sacred” money, of which we are but stewards.
