On Jan. 12, 2010, a massive earthquake struck Haiti, devastating its capital with thousands of people feared dead. The recent earthquake, the worst in the region in more than 200 years, brought even more suffering to the western hemisphere’s poorest nation.
because of the great need in Haiti, Relief for Children is accepting donations to support the relief needs caused by this earthquake.
A message from our President, Dr. Tim Long.
Friends: I know that many of you have seen the horrible situation that has evolved in Haiti after the recent earthquake. I will be happy to make sure that your donation gets to the right place through my connections in Lion’s Club International. If you would like to donate, you can use our convenient and secure donation form by clicking here.
Please put the comment “Haiti” in the comment box, and I will be happy to make sure it gets to the right place.
The hearts of all of us at Project Relief are with the people of Haiti at this time. Please pass this on to your friends.

“We must remember the lesson of taking third world problems one at a time. If you sit down and try tot solve the total African problem, you find yourself becoming almost impotent. The key is helping one person at a time.” This is a loose quote from Harry Belafonte’s We Are the World press conference in 1985.
My daughter Mary and wife Elizabeth traveled through Ethiopia in January of 2008. While we were there we set the foundation of starting an orphanage and helping children learn English. (more…)
My name is Xiyun Duan, a graduate student of Ball state University, majoring in Educational Administration and Supervision that is a program to train school administrators in the U.S. I came to America with a purpose and I believe study here can help me reach my goal that is to establish an elementary school in rural part of China. It’s been a long journey that I’m confirmed by the vision and I really appreciate once only a dream but now is turning into a destination I’m driving to.
