Dan Ram Give Hope Gala


Give Hope was born as a result of the desire of its founders; Roger Braswell, Angela Quinn and Dr. Dane Kovach, to insure the support and welfare of the children at the Cambry Orphanage located in Les Cayes, Haiti. The orphanage is owned and operated by El Shaddai Ministries Int’l (ESMI), a Haitian ministry which has planted 81 churches and operates numerous schools and orphanages. The story began in January of 2012, when Roger and Angela led a team of doctors and other volunteers from BlessBack Worldwide to Cambry and learned that the children there were severely malnourished due to a shortfall in funding. They worked to develop an orphan support program with donors providing $50 per month per child to augment the existing funding. As a result, the orphanage administrator was able to purchase extra food for the children and their health began to improve dramatically. Also, the Cambry School was able to pay its teachers and it began to operate at full capacity. Subsequent trips that Roger, Angela and Dane made to Cambry in March 2012, July 2012, August 2012 and January 2013 bore witness to the amazing improvement of the health of the children and the overall operations of the facility. As a part of the program, Angela, Roger and Dane are leading teams to Cambry three to four times a year to check on the children and make sure they are thriving. Dr. Dane is a dentist who has provided missionary dental care on three continents and will insure that the dental care gains that have been made at Cambry and other nearby orphanages will be maintained. In 2013, Dr. Will Caldwell joined Give Hope’s Board of Directors and began implementing a two-pronged medical ministry to address acute care issues of the children and staff at the orphanages and to create a public health policy and program to help prevent diseases and promote lasting improvements in overall community health. Give Hope currently supports a full-time Haitian doctor and 24 Community Health Care Workers, who provide ongoing support for the orphans and community. Additionally, Roger currently serves as a member of the board of ESMI, which is Give Hope’s host while in Haiti. This allows him to work closely with ESMI’s Haitian leaders, Pastors Dony and Louis St. Germaine to make the best use of the funds that Give Hope provides for the children of Cambry and other ESMI villages.
