Advent is one of several key supporters of MABO, a children’s home in Haiti. MABO arose out of the great need to care for children after the devastating earthquake of 2010.
In the years since, MABO has gone from 20 children cooped up in a house to having a children’s home with 35 children and a school that educates 100 people from children to adults in the surrounding community. Some of the classes for adults are technical/vocational classes.
Advent members stay in touch with the MABO leaders, staff and children through email, phone calls, Skype and visits. Advent members have done a number of service projects at MABO to improve the facilities and help develop the programming offered to the community.
