Family Outreach's founding President Rose Edkins in 1979 started a school and an orphanage that grew to 75 children. Many children were later adopted all over the USA, Canada,
Europe, including France and Switzerland. Most of these children today
are college educated adults with their own families .In 1982, she started The
Good Samaritan as a Haitian NGO a Non Government Organization, a charity
with clinics and a hospital. This hospital grew under a $million grant from USAID to be the largest in Carre Four a suburb of Port-Au-Prince.
Today Mother Rose and Family Outreach send relief supplies, first to many orphanages
then to schools and various feeding programs through out Haiti and other parts of the World. Each year Family Outreach sends
containers of rice, clothing, and household goods. This past year 2010
we have sent 3 containers of emergency quake relief supplies, plus medical
supplies, and rice to Haiti.
In addition we have sent a container of shoes to the
Dominican Republic as well as another container of development supplies
including over 100 sewing machines.
This was our first year to send a full
40' container of
rice to an orphanage in Liberia.
