Bon Repos Orphanage

 Bon Repos Orphanage

Four years ago I met a very wonderful Christian woman who had started a ministry in Port-au-Prince, Haiti for underprivileged girls when my brother Jim accompanied me to Haiti to teach a three day prayer seminar for church leaders in Port-au-prince area.

 Bon Repos Orphanage In third world countries it is not uncommon for boys to be favored over girls as boys in these societies are better able to work in very physically demanding jobs and support the family financially. Therefore, as a rule, boys in these situations are given greater access to the few opportunities that become available to a poor family such as the opportunity to attend school or receive preferential treatment.
Knowing this Mamie Yol (Yolanda) as she is affectionately called by the girls she has adopted, after retiring, left New York and returned to Haiti to reach out with the resources God had given her to help underprivileged girls.

She took her total life savings and invested it in building a beautiful facility/compound for raising orphans and bought a small garment business which she runs to provide daily sustenance for the children.

Unfortunately, the garment business was recently destroyed by the political unrest in the country. UCT is researching the possibility of reestablishing this sewing ministry to generate revenue for the orphanage.

United Missions is partnering with Foundation Yolanda Thervil in Bon Repos The orphanage has approximately 40 girls who live there now and has a new community school that has been meeting for the last few years. This facility serves as a refuge not only for the girls in the orphanage but also for the people of the community who are members of a beautiful sanctuary that is built on the campus.

United Caribbean Trust is delighted to be partnering with this organization and we are seeking sponsorship to try and get all the help we can to bring the facility up to full capacity.


This is an opportunity for someone(s) to do ministry with the Haitian people with no need to learn to speak Creole. Mamie Yol is fluid in both English and Creole and is capable of translating for those who wish to speak to the children.

What they need are some visitors to love on the children and a small amount of financial support to maintain and grow their ministry. This facility is a good place for a Christian group to go in and do a VBS and/or some building of school furniture.

God has put this ministry on my heart to search for a loving congregation who might want to make a journey with me over to visit and support their ministry.

The Mission House provides excellent accommodation for 12 people.

Support needs consist of Biblical teaching materials, school materials, girl’s items and financial support for food and paying the orphanage school & staff a small stipend.
