What's New?
Meet Belsheda
 
 

Belsheda is a very intelligent and caring 18 year old. She has been at the orphanage since the age of 7, and was one of the first children to be enrolled. Belsheda understands, through demonstration, what it means to be a leader - she leads by example. We have seen her progress from an earnest helper at the orphanage, to developing, leading and hosting the children’s talent shows and choir songs.

Her family is from Dame-Marie, Haiti. Belsheda’s mother left for to Port-au-Prince to find work and placed Belsheda in the care of her grandmother. When her mother did not return after the 2010 earthquake, she was believed to have died in Port-au-Prince. Belsheda’s aging grandmother could no longer sufficiently care for her, and brought her to the orphanage with the hope of a better life for her granddaughter.

Belsheda has emerged from a shy and quiet young girl, to a confident and methodical young lady. She enjoys braiding hair, singing and conducting talent shows. Her effort to ensure the children are looked after and her dedication to her studies are qualities essential for her goal of becoming a nurse. Our goal is to help Belsheda achieve that dream of becoming a nurse.
